I am shooting a film in the near future and need three prop M-1 Garands. Getting a real one is not an option due to price and laws. I do have a permit, but I will be shooting at different locations and getting permits will be very difficult if live firearms will be on the scene. If anybody has any recommendations of where I can find decent prop guns, please let me know. Thanks.

$375 for a welded shut wall hangar? Geez! I guess I should have been buying them up over the years.

Thanks for the link. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be working right now but I'll try again later. I found replica Garands for around $250, but I'm not sure of the quality and realism.

Ever considered 'foam' Garands? Drop me a PM....I've got a supply of 'em. Not sure they are what you are looking for, but they've already been 'movie used' (Flags of our Fathers, Windtalkers).

Non firing (of course LOL).

Same seller offering a Springfield for $149.00 with 10 available, but shipping is $75.00...... Think that's a typo?

http://cgi.ebay.com/...=item4aa50a9160

The set of 2 listed above for $498.00 includes free shipping...

Those denix replicas ain't all that bad for what they are.
Solid wood stocks, nice weight, only bad thing is the cast metal parts and lack of some detail.
Should work well as a movie prop.
We have a thompson and garand.
