I'm selling a few more rifles from my collection to help finance some upcoming surgeries and other medical bills for a couple of the dogs here at Wolf Creek Dog Rescue, the dog and wolf hybrid rescue/shelter/sanctuary we run.

These are collectable Winchester M1 Garand rifles that I purchased from the Civilian Marksmanship Program over 20 years ago. I have never fired them, I stuck them in my gun safe the day I received each of them, and the have sat there, untouched, until now.

C&R friendly!

California Residents: I'm in Sage, Southwest Riverside County, between Temecula and Hemet. These rifles are "cash and carry" or can be shipped direct to California residents with C&R/COE.

1. Rifle #1 Serial number 2376895.

Barrel is SA-10-47

Trigger group is HRA

Op rod is WRA

Bolt is D28287-12SA

Rear sight is NOT lockbar.

I have no idea what the other parts are, other than what is listed above.

I bought this rifle from CMP November 16, 1998. It was whatever their highest available "less wood" grade was back then. When it arrived, it had the nice set of walnut handguards that are still on it (I don't know if they are Winchester or SA), but there was no buttstock.

At the time I had a pile of nice original Garand wood, so I put one of my stocks on it. I seem to recall that the stock I put on it is an original WW2 Winchester stock that was arsenal refurbished - it does not have any visible traces of the WRA cartouche, but does have a little boxed "3 stars over eagle" on the left side of the stock, and a circled plain P on the front of the grip.

I don't know the muzzle or throat, have no way of measuring them, and back then CMP didn't list the specs for them on the paperwork. It has a beautiful bore that is bright and shiny with sharp rifling.

Overall I'd rate the whole rifle in excellent condition.

Other than the stock which I added, this rifle is untouched and unfired, exactly as I received it in November 1998. I just now took it out of the box for the first time in 22 years.

CMP has been out of Winchesters, and any other high grade rifles like this, for a long time. If they should happen to get any more in the future, those would be listed on their auction page, and would go quickly for a high price.

THIS IS NOT A $650 BEATER WITH MIXED PARTS, HEAVY JUNGLE RUST PITTING UNDER NEW PARKERIZING, WITH AN AFTERMARKET STOCK SET AND BARREL.

THIS RIFLE IS "OLD SCHOOL", "BACK IN THE DAY", "AS GOOD AS IT GETS" - you will not see another one like it anytime soon. This is from my personal long-time collection, that many folks here are familiar with, and I don't collect junk.

I'm only selling this to raise funds for some eye surgery on one of the dogs here at the dog and wolf-hybrid rescue I run, so THE PRICE IS FIRM and I am not interested in any trades.

The price is $1,600 + shipping FIRM.

This will be listed on other sites, so the first definite and unconditional "I'll take it" to my EMAIL at vonweigert(at)earthlink.net gets it

Postal Money Order is preferred method of payment, but other MO or check will work also. NO PAYPAL or other online payment.

2. RIFLE #2. SERIAL NUMBER 2522938

Barrel is Winchester (WP) proofed - as I recall all other markings on Winchester barrels are under the handguards, and since it is a Winchester barrel (looks like the original one to me) I'm not going to take it apart any further than I did just now by taking the action out of the stock to check visible parts markings on the main parts, since I already did that 20 some years ago.

Triggerguard is WRA D28290 but hammer and safety are Springfield Armory SA marked, not sure what trigger is

Stock is Winchester WRA/GHD marked with crossed cannon cartouche.

Op rod and bolt are Springfield Armory SA marked

Not sure about the rest of the parts and not going to disassemble it any further than this, same as when I first got it.

I got this one from CMP in April 1999, other than taking it out of the box and removing the
action from the stock to examine it, it is exactly as I got it, untouched for the last 21 years and unfired.

Terms are the same as the first rifle listed here.

The price on this one is $2,000 FIRM.
