You can also join the GCA online $25 ( https://thegca.org/product/membership/ ).
GCA is very tightly linked with the CMP and is a qualifying club.
Also comes with a great quarterly magazine for those interested in M1 Garands and learning more.
I use Orion7 for my FFL , for my shipments from the CMP. Also great if you want Orion7 to inspect your Garand (or other WWII rifle), once they receive it for transfer.
As always, with any FFL, let Mike @ Orion7 know what's coming and if you want to have them inspect and transfer, or just transfer.
For those that aren't aware, Orion7 is one of the leading shops for WWII rifles, sales/service/repairs/parts.
It's getting harder to get a Garand. There's been no new re-imports for a while. Even the CMP is running low. Prices going up.
Now down to commercial barrels for resto-builds and Rack grades @ the CMP.
I've also bought WWII rifles from Orion7 ( Orion 7 | Orion7 – the M1 Garand Specialists. Home to M1Garand.com ). I've been to the shop recently, Garands going off the rack quickly. They have a back log of rebuilds to do. And they get new stuff in time to time, from collectors thinning out their collection. With the economy the way it is, collectors (gathers) are selling to support their retirement.
I just picked up a great M1917 30-06 Winny for a nice price @ Orion7.
They have some very nice M1Carbines in the wall.
They update their site with what grades they have in stock, and what they are taking orders/reservations for as builds become available.
