Found Old-New Garands - Not New-New Ones!

Seems CMP came across some brand new OLD Garands that were never issued! I am told most are Springfields with a few H&R mixed in. These were discovered in a shipment from overseas and there seems to be a couple hundred of them. My understanding is they are left overs from the Korean War production -- NEVER ISSUED! Maybe if I sell all I own, I can pick one of these up! Pictures Anyone?

I would love to have one of those! Even knowing the value I would have difficult time not shooting it.

I would rather have my Service grade. One round and the vlue of the unfired one goes down. I am not a collector, I am a shooter.

I like mine too! It would be cool to have an unfired one just because not many people could claim that title. I wish these warhorses could speak though and tell us of their many adventures.
They would have to clean them even if I just got a look them. They would definately have to wipe the drool off. Just like in the above smiley. :)

I love it. I got a Garand from SOG about two months ago and they were in actually in good condition and I got the grade II for 495 plus shipping which it was 509 all together. I got the guns in two days also. They are really fast.

P.S. :sheep: I have never seen something so BEAUTIFUL! :bow:
I know how you feel! I felt the same way when my package from the CMP arrived.

From what I hear CMP takes forever to get your guns. I guess they want you to be anxious when you get them.
They do, but it's worth it!
I think they give extended time frames to give themselves a little fudge factor. Mine were earlier than expected as well.
