    Well you guys over there are obviously spoilt for choice when you can afford to discuss whether a Garandicon shooter is worth $900!

    Over here that would be a steal. Add on 50% and hope you're lucky. I won't tell you what my Garand cost, because many wouldn't believe me, but if I were to sell it (I would have to be at the point of bankruptcy to do anything so irreversible!) I would simply stick a "1" in front of the 3-figure sum I originally paid.

    Well, we're way past that. A basic rifle now, they're all parts guns or Danishicon returns now...are $2500 CDN or better. I sold a LL original parts for $2800 CDN about seven years back. Just saw some newish "Originals" being offered at $5000 CDN...FFS. Couldn't guess if they sold or not. Hope not...
    Regards, Jim

    I think that I paid DM 1200 for mine in 1996.Garands last seen on sale for € 1500, ie about two and half times what I paid. Forget gold, invest in steel!

    Ex Crab, thanks for the confirmation:
    Take the price you paid (converted into euros), stick a "1" in front, and there you have todays's price range for Garands.



    Better than money in the bank, and more fun!
