Would be a good thing to bring them back but have heard stories that they are in "deplorable" condition, similar to us according to some folks.

There's was a ton of discussion in the recent past and the same, resounding, opinion was that these will be shot out, at best. And folks need to realize, too, that they were bought by the SKoreans, not a lend/lease like the Greeks and they won't go back to the Army and on to CMP.
It's a ll a fanciful dream, these Korean Garands. Nice gesture to reverse and I'm sure some one will get a serviceable rifle out of it but it sure won't be @ CMP prices.

I have heard similair reports ! If CMP can't get them and a importer gets them all I would say the prices will be not in tune with what we are use to ! Its a wait and see I guess.

Rest assured....the vast majority of these rifles will be shot-out sewer pipes! Good for parts only at best...most likely.

Korea's not the only country sitting on large amounts of weaponry. Vietnam is supposed to have huge stockpiles of small arms that could be imported as well.

Yea, well as long as the receiver is clean the barrel can be replaced. Small parts are still very common and reasonably priced.

Thanks from Tommo, nf1e and M1AFL

By the time this happens, they will probably be on the banned list here in communist peoples republic of Maryland, especially since the ruling of the 4th circuit court allows military style rifles to be banned.

I suppose we will just have to wait and see what comes down the pipe if this happens. Condition and price will be everything for an imported weapon. That being said there seems to be a lot of new shooters interested in Garands/Carbines by looking at other forums. Some seem to be paying mostly asking price for what's available also. Depending on price the re-sellers will be there and doing their thing.

I was not impressed with the last go around. Who remembers the blue sky import M1 carbines from S. Korea. I ended up pounding mine barrel first down a prairie dog hole in remote Montana. No doubt some archaeologist will be scratching his head about that a hundred years from now.

I have a Blue Sky imported Garand that I bought in the early '80s. The barrel was shot out and the op rod was bent, but the rest was in good shape. Replaced both and all was well.

The interesting thing was that the stock had been inletted for glass bedding, but never bedded.

Thanks from Tommo
