Ditto. The CMP is running out of affordable Garands. Darn near impossible to get one from WW2, for example. I got one of the last 1945's three years ago. I'm sure they're around, but not for the $500 I paid.
Service Grade ($625 now) Springfield Armory Garands with WW2 serials are not terribly uncommon. I recieved one via mail-order with a 1944 serial back in June of this year. There seemd to be a spate of WW2 rifles (well, recievers at least) being shipped this summer.
It's all just a matter of what's in the crate when the CMP opens it up.
