Anybody know if "Commercial" Springfield Armory still makes M1 Garands?

I have one I bought back in the 80's chambered in 7.62/.308 - It's been a Good Shooter, But I don't shoot it nowhere near as much as I would like due to Ammo costs.

I also have 1944 Springfield 30 06 which is Very Nice that I got through the then DCM - In fact it's a tough call between this one and my M1A for that one Go to Gun for a SHTF.

Well TJ, I just checked the "Commercial" Springfield Armory web site, and the M1 Garand was not offered. I don't believe it has been for several years. Sad thing really.

Thanks Guys,

Shooter, Sorry, I don't post Pics of my Firearms, kind of like Window shopping for Thieves, A.K.A the Government. But You are Welcome to come by and see it in person.

There are no commercial versions of the M1. There are commercial versions of the M1A and mini 14. Those have limited legality in most states, or must meet certain restrictions
There are several good companies, like Orion 7, or Fulton Armory that can take care of pretty much anything you want re: the M1.

You won't be disappointed. And if you need a good source for info on the care and feeding of your new baby, check out Scott Duffs books on the M1. Those are must haves.

Springfield did have a brief re-issue of Garand's in late 1990's to 2005-ish. They show up on GB.com periodically, usually shown with the blue & white SA box.

Sorry to resurrect an older post, but just joined the forum (after reading about it on the KTOG sister forum.) Doesn't look like a lot of Garand discussion activity in any case, which is understandable.

I have one of the 10,000 "new" Garands made around 10 years ago. in the blue & white box as mentioned. New stock, receiver and barrel, but some internal components (op rod, gas tube) were taken from SA warehouse stock and reparkerized. MSRP was around $1K IIRC. (I still kick myself for not getting a DCM Garand back when they were going for $250, then $500.)

The cool thing about them was that SA offered a coupon for discounted accessories, so I was able to get an original AF&H (American Fork & Hoe) cut-down bayonet for it and some other stuff. Believe these were the first "new production" Garands made by SA since the early '60's, but I'll defer to the experts on that.
