Picked this up the other day

Been looking for the "right" IHC Garand for some time.
Found this one on a gun forum, private owner. He had it for years and decided he would sell it.
All Correct IHC
Heres pics of all parts to help you identify IHC parts if you ever run across any






MW just under 1 TW just under 2

Looks just like mine, which I bought in the mid-'70s. The stock on mine was beat all to hell so I refinished it (actually, twice now), but otherwise it's 100% stone stock as I bought it. Now I'm wishing I'd left the stock alone, dents and all. Ah shucks oh well.

The bore on mine's moderately pitted but it still shoots like a champ.

Orlando,

LUCKY DOG! LUCKY DOG!

I've looked for a "cornbinder" in original condition for over a decade with NO luck.

Question ...I traded this for one

LOVE the IHC Garand! Nice weapon indeed. I traded a guy for this one by H&R circa 1954 about 3 weeks ago...had it gone through and was told it was in excellent shape bar some gunk accumulation in the receiver...don't know much about H&R values but I traded a M1 Carbine from Standard co that was worth about $400 and was a constant visitor to the GS..Let me know what you think

Is it all correct HRA?
HRA's dont really carry a premium over other like condition SA post war rifles, even if a mixmaster you stole it

I used to go to the range once a week sometimes twice, its only 15 minutes away. Jjust been to much going on this year and I'm lucky to get there once every two months. It sure shows in my shooting to, you really get out of practice

Ratfink2u,

WOW! NICE Garand.

Now, if I could just find a NICE SAAD, RRA or RRAD rebuilt Garand.
(I wouldn't take love nor money for my (1930s SAAD rebuilt) 1917 Remington "mixmaster" that was "returned from" the British Home Guard.)

yours, sw

Ratfink2u,

ImVho, you did GREAT.

SAAD = San Antonio Army Depot
RRA = Red River Arsenal
and
RRAD = Red River Army Depot
(Texas-based rebuilders of US military rifles.)

NOTE: I've known ONE person who I believed that actually had an "as new" (and perhaps UNFIRED) Garand & my late friend Karl F. F__________ (late 2LT, IN & VAARNG) received his circa-1956 H&R in 1962 from DCM, when he was a senior at Washington & Lee. - His Garand is on display at The NRA Museum.
(Fwiw, Karl also placed his G-Grandfather's CSA dress uniform, Spiller & Burr revolver, Nashville Plow Works sword, holster & gun-belt in the NRA Museum shortly before his death.)

yours, sw

A couple of years ago I got an HRA from the CMP, it came from Anniston with a 1942 SA barrel.

Sure are some pretty rifles, all of them.

Nice having a piece of history in your hands. I feel that way about my carbine...barrel and receiver are Inland and date to 1944. Probably didn't see WWII action, but from the looks of the stock it's been used a bunch by someone. The tales it could tell...maybe.

Thank Y'all, I do love the Garand and it is the quintessential piece to my collection of battle rifles along with the M1 carbine from 1944.
On another note from history, my great,great,great grandpappy was A.P. Hill. not much as far as a tactician in military history I fear but I claim him none the less. My G-G grandmother held onto his saber, belt,cloak hat and gun belt for years until she passed and my redneck relatives cleaned her house out before she was cold.
Oddly, I'm the only living relative that resembles his likeness and I received nothing of his...would have loved to have his saber.
