Hint: The $575 Winchester will shoot no better than the $400 Danish Issue/Return.

Hint: the $575 Winchesters are fought over by collectors and WWII reenactors, while the $400 Danish Issue/Returns were in many cases recently rebuilt, often with new barrels, some made by Beretta and very near match grade according to the air gauging machine at the NWSC Crane match rifle shop.

Another very good deal: a $200 Danish return barrelled receiver and an M1 Garand parts set. And for $50 more, you can have one that's been freshly Parkerized.

I don't know about the Garand parts set. They have dried up recently and getting a really good one is a bit chancy as unethical people will order 20 kits and cherry pick the best and most valuable parts and send back the rest.

But why not a woodless Dane return? A $75 new stock from Boyd's and $50 for the metal and you are in business.

P.S. I'm not really into the name thing. An extra $175 won't buy you one more ounce of quality and accuracy and reliabilty than a Dane with a VAR barrel (an maybe less).
