Best websites to find WW2 rifles?

Post by Gregh181 » Fri Aug 23, 2013 5:39 pm

Whats the best site or sites to look online for Garands, Enfields, M1 Carbines and other similar rifles? I visit Aimsurplus and classicfirearms quite often but generally dont find much there.

Gunboards.com is a milsurp collector's site. WWII milsurps from most the participants turn up in their BST fairly regularly.

CMP used to be the best place to get Garands and carbines (and shipped right to your door, too) - but their offerings often ebb and flow, and you have to be quick when they release a batch for sale.

Buying from CMP, do you have to be a member with them to do so?

You have to meet requirements for the cmp which are not very hard to do. Well worth it. Dupage trading also has a decent deal going on garands, as well as buying from the bst on the cmp forums.

Check out this thread: viewtopic.php?f=36&t=113227 in addition there is: http://www.surplusrifle.com/index.asp and Sarco: http://www.e-sarcoinc.com/ & +1 on Gunboards.com http://www.gunboards.com/ check out some of the sponsors there..... Old Western Scrounger is another one: http://www.ows-ammo.com/store/ [ check out that "Pig Buster Carbine! ] and finally you are pretty close to AAA gun shop in Deland........ thay have 100's of milsurps in stock.... [[ most of them overpriced and Bubba'd up]] but if you pay cash, and know what parts are out there to restore them, you can get a nice piece at a good price. Regular visits to your local gunshops and Pawn shops and post a WTB in our BST yield good results too.... Good Luck, Jim

Talk to anyone you see using one at the range.
It's very likely they might be a collector and have some they would sell.

CMP is making it easy for qualified persons to by American Surplus rifles and ammo.
Have you got a passport or birth certificate? C&RC FFL? DD214? A CCW? and you can join the GCA to qualify for the "Club Membership" only $25 and you get a very informative little magazine quarterly. Or if you shoot in matches or belong to a range.
Well worth the minimal effort to have a Rifle shipped to your door. Or you can go to Anniston AL and visit their store. Maybe Armed in Pasco can let you camp in his yard? =:bye
