The price on those is through the roof.
I’d love one but not for $2000+.

I saw an M1 Gerand for sale in my local store for $1,500.00 brand new, but that was a week ago.

It was a beautiful rifle.

After earning my BSEE without recognition from anybody, excluding the wages in my new job, I went on to finish my Master’s, which isn’t likely to be advanced for various and sundry reasons.

Still, I felt that I deserved something for all of the work, and so blew $1000 on my M1A NM. Younger eyes are better, but that weapon put 10 rounds under a quarter at 100 yards over iron sights.

I still have it, as I do almost all of my weapons, although I did scope it.

And it’ll be the weapon in my hands if I have to “go out”.

1980 dollars, I grant you, but worth every dime.
