Please educate yourselves as to the legal requirements for buying and selling firearms in Interstate Commerce.Especially where it concerns the CMP, and non FFL sellers.Any person who is not an FFL commits a Federal crime by conducting repeat business for profit in the firearms trade.
Discounts given to purchasers at CMP undermine the market value for all Garands if CMP buyers illegally turn around and sell these guns for profit after they signed an affidavit swearing that the weapon was for personal use only.
Many CMP rifles are not even fit to be fired. Some are battered hulks in different grades of Mil-Surp condition.When thinking of buying a Garand, always ask about the barrel, if it isn't brand new, ask for the throat and muzzle erosion numbers.A reputable seller will be able to provide this information.
Altus Arms sells only completely functional Garands with new barrels, thus the throat and muzzle erosion number is ZERO.
