Replica/Prop/Demilled M-1 Garand


Recommended Posts

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.

I am interested in buying items from the 9th Infantry Division in WWII (39th, 47th, 60th Infantry Regiments and other subunits)

$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).

After having a double bypass this past year, it's time to downsize and pass along much of my 'stuff'. I've had my fun, now it is someone elses turn.

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.

Freedom isnt free... it must be paid for. Too often it is paid for by the blood of patriots. For those who have paid their share, Freedom has a flavor the protected will never know.
