    Lots of "if" "maybe" and "hopefully" but if so it'd be great for people who missed out or haven't had a chance to get one yet. I've heard some rumors about this for a bit, Mark Johnson commenting and the fact the Phillipines seems ready to send these guns homes makes me hope it is happening, though isn't that 86k number considered quite generous? Also, rumor was a lot of these guns were rough and may be parts only. Still happy to hear this though, more Garands to go around is always good. I was on the fence about adding another but eventually passed on doing so, maybe in a few years if these guns show up I can revisit that. Now if only some ammo would come around...

    Here's the link... BREAKING: Civilian Marksmanship Program May Receive 86,000 M1 Garand Rifles from the Philippines - The Firearm BlogThe Firearm Blog

    Yes, lots of hopeful but nothing concrete. The first statement is "May receive"... It would be nice for you guys though. I'd love to see the serial number blocks.
    Regards, Jim

    I have visited the Philippines many times - its a hot humid tropical country and preventive maintenance is pretty much unknown, also given the fact that they were American guns that cost the Philippines nothing My personal opinion is that they are pretty much junk.

    Not a chance that a gas trap may be in that early bunch, eh???
    The CMPicon may have a few "hot and heavy" auctions, if so.

    Early parts will help restorers for sure.

    from the above link
    "- Finally, on the actual topic of the PI Garands, the transfer of these rifles is in the works. The blog also referenced here is speculating as much as the other Facebook pages, even cross-posting info.
    As those who have worked similar FMS-type deals/loans are painfully aware, there is alot of red-tape/logistics to work through, which is why there has been little to no detailed information and why it may take some time to finally get these shipped over, evaluated and graded for sale.

    I have a very good buddy who buys out of PI all of the time. Prices always change after the deal is sign and done. Nothing ever shipped on time and lots of interesting excuses. He thinks zero Garands coming this way, and nothing at all coming for free. We will have to wait and see, but the longer the wait is, the less likely anything shows up. Most of the CMPicon returns have some sort of US Army delivery to the foreign country. The Korean Garand deal involved a missle defense system from the USAicon. Complex deal Hillary nixed. But off topic to say the least. As for the PI Garands, wait and see.

    There is no payment involved. In order for CMPicon to get these rifles they must first be returned to the U.S. Army as they originally were LOANED to the Philippines as foreign aid under a MAP. The Army can then turn the rifles over to the CMP. If the rifles had been purchased from the U.S. then CMP would never see them.
