    Thanks a lot for the kind words! I have quite an extensive WWII US small arms collection. It was very easy to put everything together as I got many guns for free. And when you have to buy the prices are ridiculous compared to the US of A. A working WWII vintage BAR is about 2.800 $, an M2 HMG 3.500$.
    Some gorgeous Garands there - I am jealous!!

    Common sense is only right wing if you are too far to the left.
    A pistol without a round chambered is an intricate paperweight.
    Stop trying so hard to be offended.

    From the pics, I would agree that one seems all orginal & correct. Which is just crazy, worth a small fortune. Is the op rod "uncut?" If you don't know how to identify that, holler. And gheez, all these awesome Garands of yours are making me feel inadequate!

    Perfect, seems to be completely unmolested / original condition. May I say "I hate you" and you not take it the wrong way?

    I guess I deserve it for badly teasing fellow Garand aficionados!
    Well honestly, I do appreciate all the close up & detailed pics, and am in awe of your collection. Are you aware of the "Garand Collectors Assoc" here in the US? They welcome stories like yours. I wrote one up awhile back and was published, so it is very "grass roots" in terms of editorial content. I'm sure they would publish your tales, but you would have to join the organization to do so. It's $30ish annually, not a big deal.
