Just picked up a nice Garand which is a RRAD rebuild. Bought if from a private owner who purchased it from CMP in 2004
1963 barrel MW .5 TW 1 , looks to have fired very little since rebuild.
Love those 1960's rebuilds, she should be a great shooter

Orlando,

You seem to be luckier than "the average bear"!!!! = I've looked for a "serviceable" RAA/RAAD rebuild for YEARS, with ZERO LUCK. - I was born & raised near there, KNEW many of the LSAP & RRAD employees & RRAD was well-known for the excellent depot rebuilt Garands that they did.
(A fellow at the CMP North Store about 4-5 years ago, even "went to the back" to look through the "back stock" W/O success, in the days when CMP had LOTS of SG garands.)

yours, sw

Couple more 60's rebuilds I have
This is a SA Garand that was rebuilt by Toole Arsenal, has TE 8-64 for Tooele August -1964 electric penciled on reciever legs .This rifle has a different silvery colored parkerizing.
There is no wear to finish so it must have been used very little after being rebuilt






This is is a WRA Letterkenny Arseanl rebuild . It is from a serial range that had duplicate serial numbers with Springfield. It has the letter "A" electric penciled at the end of the serial. This was done when two rifles with the same serial were used/stored at the same location
Also had a orange triangle ink stamp on the bottom or grip which usually gets rubbed off

Stop it with the Garands you guyz! I'm developing Garand lust!:censored: And I've never had it before and don't know what to do about it cuz I won't be able to find such nice Garands and if I did I'd have no room for them because of my M1A and the M-1 carbine and the 94 Winchester .30-30 and the Sharps carbine and the Browning Auto 5 and a few other guns I have .....

Seriously though those are nice Garands. Especially that last one of yours Orlando, the 1960s rebuild.
