    I already have an M-1C, but not with the MC-1 setup.

    Someone will pay that amount for it.

    I had an opportunity to buy an older NM Garand for about $800 a few years ago, and I just didn't have the free $$$ to spend at the time. That rifle, and other unique and authenticated ones like it, are along the lines of shit that I'd love to collect. A buddy of mine's dad has an authenticated 1903A4 with everything original and matching.

    Hard to say.

    The MC-1 variant is rather hard to come buy and a given M-1C variant is already in the high thousands range. To see some documentation to go along with it, doesn't surprise me that it breaks the $10k mark.

    Personally, I buy the gun and not the story. Would I pay $11k? Nope, but someone will.

    But with the M-1D we're talking about a different platform and the probably the easiest sniper variant to rip off.

    I think my grandpa still has his service rifles from WWII, and Korea.

    He was a Marine in the pacific, then went to korea, and stayed in the reserves until 1958. He's a fucking bad ass. :bowdown:

    On the C model, the scope mount base is drilled and then staked into the leftside of the receiver.

    On the D model, the scope mount is part of the barrel assembly.
