Actually, the serial numbers go up to a bit over 6,000,000 but because of gaps in serial number ranges, the real number of garands produced is something like 4.5 million. Of course, only a very small percentage of these ended up being surplused to us regular folks, somewhere in the neighborhood of .5 million or so (and counting). :mrgreen:GeoffM24 said:That is easy, you can buy a real M1 from CMP for as little as $295, 6 million were made and since they were semiauto we can buy them.
