    M1 Garands are exempted by name within the law. They can have 8 rnd clips at all times (Unless a province specifically regulates the number of centerfire rifle cartridges during hunting season).

    Well if you really wanted a 5rnd clip you could have just bought them. Additionally, you don't even need them as the M1 is exempted by name.

    So I tried to check out price and no page? Would price and details here be that difficult?

    Price wise the last batch were at $1,799 plus HST ($2015) If they don't have them, they don't post any details...JRA are advertising them for $1295 US...So I guess once brokerage fees, delivery and import duties are paid plus Wanstalls add something were at the $1,799....Just wondering what's stopping any of us from using a broker to get one ?....JRA have some really nice alternatives to the Garand as well...

    I really wanted in on the first batch but heard about it too late.

    I have two Garands, My baby which is a SA with a VAR barrel, and just a plain sweatheart to shoot, and a repro SA M1D, which is a nice piece as well.

    I want a new manufacture gun I can use as a shooter though and just pound rounds through without worrying about shooting out the barrel and wearing out parts on my older ones. (I shoot several k rounds a year)
    You know you are a real gunnut when you start practicing trigger control on power tools.

    WWJMBD? What Would John Moses Browning Do?
