How much do International Harvester Garands usually go for? I've been looking at a couple that are in the low $400's. They're far from mint but the innards are in really good shape.
Also where can you get 5 round clips for hunting?

Not sure what they'll fetch on the market these days, but you can go here to Fulton Armory (http://www.fulton-armory.com/MParts.htm) for 5-round clips. Scroll to about 3/4 down the page...

Any M1 rifle in reasonable shape in the low $400s?

Why are you asking about if this is a good price or not? Why aren't you buying them??? In five years this will seem like a dream price. hell it almost sounds like a dream price now. They can sell for around a grand but of coure, condition is everything

You can modify an 8 round clip to hold only 5 (or whatever number you like) with hand tools. Check this thread for an example ...

A nice International M1 would sell about $1200 and way up depending on condition.
Any M1 that shoots is a good deal at $400
At the price it is being offered it more than likely would be a rebuild or rebarreled import.
There are 3 different recievers,the 1st made by Springfield.They had LMR barrells and the marked parts would be IHC.

*Knocks shafter out of the way to get at those $400 garands.*

Unless they are solid rust I'd have bought them.

Midway has 2 and 5 round clips as well as single shot adapters.

If it's in shooter shape, that's a 10 yr old price.

I think they are imports from some third world country but there's no rust and really don't look that bad. All I want is a shooter so I think I'm in luck.
Thanks for the advice about the clips

First, read up on welded M1 receivers till you know what to look for so you don't get hosed. There seem to be a disproportionate number of welded IHC's out there for some reason or another.

If not welded, a good IHC receiver will bring that price alone. Also, some IHC's, such as gap-letter, arrowhead, and SA/IHC receivers bring a big premium over the run-of-the-mill IHC.

Best of luck...

If I knew where these were, you wouldn't have gotten the opportunity to ask this question!:D

At $400 for an IHC, you've almost certainly got welded receivers...read up on them. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it is.
