I have a 1.8 mil Springfield Armory with correct barrel. The stock is reproduction and it has been refinished. It has assorted other parts.
Anybody have a good idea about value?

CMP sells a Springfield with their new stock for about a thousand. (http://www.thecmp.org/m1garand.htm) Service grade Springfields are $600. I would think your rifle falls somewhere in between.

i'd say between $600-$900 from what i've seen lately. Depends a lot on the condition of the barrel, what parts you actually have, if all parts are in spec, and it headspaces. The reproduction stock hurts the value as far as a collector is concerned, but just someone wanting a garand, it may actually help. I've had a couple people say they like my garand in the nice pretty reproduction stock the best out of my four, but to me I value it the least.
Best thing to do is follow this link, print the blank form, and fill it out. http://www.nicolausassociates.com/PDF/M1DataSheetFillable.pdf
You can PM me if you need help filling it out. When you've got it all go over to the CMP forum where some truly EXPERT guys can give you their opioion.
