We have four of these clearing customs this coming week direct from James River Armory in the US:
We're really happy with these; we had a handful of these come in a month ago and they sold before we could even get them up on the website. The quality is unbelievable; these guns look nicer than the day they rolled off the wartime assembly line in WWII.
JRA Garands are built by taking genuine USGI M1 Garand receivers and bolts from WWII, headspacing them for ideal fit, and pairing them to a brand new Criterion barrel made to exact milspec. The entire rifle is refinished with a parkerization process that matches original milspec finish exactly, and then a new stock is hand-shaped from American black walnut. In the end, we're left with a 1940s Garand that looks better and shoots better than the day it was made the first time around -- but which has been carefully refitted to produce an ideal example of the M1 Garand. James River Armory rearsenals these rifles by hand in extremely small batches to ensure quality is guaranteed to the standard they have set.
We were extremely impressed with these firearms the first time around. They're absolutely gorgeous, ship in a hard case, and mechanically they sing like a song.
We have four of these available on this shipment. Click HERE to see them on our site.
We are also doing a special where we will ship the rifle with 200 rounds of American Eagle 150gr, 2750fps .30-06 ammunition manufactured especially for the M1 Garand.
