In my opinion, that is the best plastic M1 Garand......it may even be too detailed, as it has all the parts to assemble/disassemble, which you may not need.

There are others from different manufacturers that are real wood and metal, which also appear to be nice.

Looks like it's about the going rate, these days. I agree that it is a nice rifle, DML has always been a source for well-detailed weapons.

Tho it runs somewhere close to twice the cost, Soldier Story's Garand is a real work of art, in wood and metal. DiD's has an irritating gap between the barrel and gas tube.

Ok thank you so far... looks like i will order it.

Got my personel problems with the other shop you offer me.

I made a order for a m200 at shop oriantal a few jears ago it took
3!! months until i resived the ordert good. So this shop is burned for me.

The Ss might be more realistic with the material its made of...but on the other hand

its might be too heavy and or to expensive. Could get it for 30+7.40 €

The version i have asked you would be 7.60+17€ express shipping (7 days not 32) so cheaper

This looks like a pretty good model of the M1 Garand, but as with all the others, it also has a couple very Minor prollums:

The rear sling swivel on the M1 doesnt move. This one looks like it is supposed to be hinged.

It is missing the stacking swivel.

Neither problem looks serious in this scale.
I don't happen to own this one, but it looks as good or better than the DML version which has its own problems: Most Garands didnt come with a grenade launcher sight bolted onto the stock but the DML gun does.

BTW, Sling is also mounted backwards but it looks easy to correct.
