Yea looks like 1700-1800 range. He has two.


Depending the paperwork, and the grade of rifle - it could be an average deal. You’re not going to flip one at that price, but you probably couldn’t build a Service Grade or higher for much less.

If the rifle is a Service grade - it’s a little high, if it’s a Correct grade - it’s at value, and an investment towards the future.

But without details pictures - it’s a guess only.

YMMV

I’d say 1000 to 1200.00. I have an all correct H&R, wouldn’t take less than 1200 for it.

The old doctor that gave it to me is dead now. He claimed to have the paperwork but mislaid it somewhere. His house was an unruly museum and archive. He told me he shot it in competitions. How do I tell if it is authentic? I really believe he at least thought it was.

There are three general categories that you're looking at for "National Match" Garands.
The Type 1 National Match rifles were built by the Arsenal as a "National Match" Rifle and fired and sold at Camp Perry to competitors. They will be documented as "National Match" Garands by the CMP. They were produced and sold up to somewhere around 1959. They were basically hand fitted stock and parts and are fairly uncommon in original condition because in the hands of competitors, they were rebuilt, rebarrelled and upgraded over their lifespan.

The Type 2 National Match garands incorporated evolving tech such as glass bedding and a hooded rear aperture. They were also arsenal built and sold at Camp Perry to competitors. The CMP would have the documentation of these as well.

The Garand collectors can tell you about the proper serial number ranges, the proper parts drawing numbers and inspector's marks. That's not me.

The third general type of garand would be those built by armorers. Included in these would be military team rifles, and civilian competitive rifles built by armorers. These, while interesting and often better shooting than the Type 1 and Type 2's are difficult to document and are probably worth the sum of their parts, unless the owner can prove that it was built by one of the legends of Garand accurizing like Don McCoy. Often times, they'll come with NM stamped barrels and/or sights, but those parts are plentiful enough that I could probably put one together like that tomorrow and peddle it to the unknowing for a pretty penny.

You could throw the Navy Garands into the same category of the Type 1 and Type 2 NM guns, but I'm not sure if they're documentable by the CMP.

How much are they worth? I'm not up to date of values...but when I checked about 10 years ago, Scott Duff was selling an unmodified Type 1 for somewhere around $2500.

For the OP, there's a whole sub category of Garand collecting for H&R. There's "arrow heads" and "postage stamps" etc. A couple of sources would be the Garand Collector's Association, and the CMP Forums. I'm not sure how active Scott Duff is anymore, but he has written some very authoratative books on Garands. FYI, None of my CMP Garands came with a crate or bayonet...not to say they don't do it now.

Here's a rabbit hole for you Hastings...!!!

I believe there's a bona fide expert Garand collector that posts on this site. I'll see if I can get him to chime in.

Arrowhead is a designation of an IHC-made Garand, also. Fairly rare, I have one here.

Do a check and confirm the rifle is a "real" issue National Match. I was thinking the 6 million serial number range was too high. Unfortunately, there are copies and forgeries for National Match rifles. If you have a real one it would probably add $500 to $1000 to the value. Not everyone is looking for a National Match rifle. If you find the right guy you could do well above $1000 more than a service grade rifle. Most of the National Match rifles I have seen set on a sellers tables for years and show after show because they are priced way out of line for what a person will pay for a service grade rifle.

I would start with contacting the CMP or the Garand Collectors Assoc. I belong to the GCA and they have some really smart guys who know all about all the versions of the Garand. Their email address is:
inforthegca.org

If you have a real National Match they might ask you if they can add it to their data base.

No big deal. Please keep conversing.

Garands are like any other rifle in that there is a multitude of differences to wade through and can become quite consuming, especially if someone is trying to restore one to "correct" for that serial number.

I've gotten to where I'm happy with a good, reliable shooter..

I have an H&R M1 and it’s a 52 receiver with a 54 barrel. It shoots 175 Rdf, 178 eld’s very will with 46.4gr h4895. It will not shoot 168 Hornady’s worth a chit. I think the ol girl needs a new barrel. I shoot it at the occasional vintage rifle matches.
