    Man I'd love some surplus Garands.

    I bought ONE years ago for 400ish.

    I should have bought 10.

    The last I heard was that dealers here were interested until they heard the prices being suggested by the South Koreans.
    People should not have to fear both the government and the criminal. It should be that the criminal fears both the people and the government.

    Please review forum rules, 13 and 25:

    Here is a link to the article from yesterday about the US opposing the sale. Looks to be more State Department dreamn't up terrorist/gang/accident's paranoia!!!! Sounds like the evil anti's are up to the same thing south of the border.

    http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news...205_71329.html

    Upon further investigation, I found out this. Which may or may not be the reason. If it is, then why didn't the government say this instead of the above crappy lies?

    The Koreans cannot prove that they ever paid for all of those M1's with their own money.

    "In the absence of such proof, the U.S. Government takes the position that the material was given to the Korea and therefore the U.S. Government is not going to allow them to sell the rifles and keep the money.

    MAP grants are not "loans." The Koreans own the rifles - Lock stock and barrel. They can keep them until the end of time if they wish and your congressman cannot compel them to return them to the US. The only problem is when the Koreans decide they don't want to keep them anymore. They can either sell them and give the money, less packing costs, directly to the US government or they can return the rifles and bill the U.S. Government for the packing cost. This is unlikely to happen as the Koreans know these things are worth $500 - $1000 each on the US retail market and they want the money in their pocket, not the CMP's."

    The Korea Times quotes a wholesale value for the rifles similar to what I've read elsewhere- "...The per-unit price of the M1 rifle is about $220 and the carbine is more than $140, according to the ministry. "

    Not sure what the typical wholesale (govt) to retail (local surplus store) markup is for this sort of transaction, but obviously the govt can't be expecting to get $1k per rifle....

    I remember in the Mid 80's garands going for $150. They were brought in by Ontario Auto Mart from a deal with the North Vietnamize. They were apparently left behind after the War ended by the US. The US were arming the ARVN troops with them in the early part of the War.
