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).

Concur, though I really prefer to avoid the H&R Garands. The best one I've ever had was a Springfield rework, with a Korean-era International Harvester as a close second. And a six-digit early WWII Springfield a close third.

I'd really, really like to have a tuned-up example of one of the recent manufacture Lithgow Garand receivers from Australia. They're not quite as they should be, but close.
