So heres the deal.. I agreed to buy a rack grade M1 from a local guy. Its priced @ $420 which is cool to me. The problem is the throat erosion is a 5-6. Which is pretty bad but there are ones out there with 9's so its not aweful. The stock is in awesome shape. I think for what I want (The ability to say I have a Garand) its a good deal. Worst case I see myself spending $300 on a match grade barrel if I decide to shoot in with a need for accuracy. Whats the opinion mates?
