Original configuration WW2 M1s are scarce since they were rebuilt 2-5 times during their service life. We used corrosive ammo until 1956 ,so to find one with the barrel it left the factory with is hard.

Vaughn99....If you have a good Danish rifle, hang onto it and be proud of it. Good Garands are getting hard to find, and some of the Danish rifles sold thru CMP were very nice compared to what is available now!

The Danish guns are really good guns. The Blue Sky were beat to SH*T by the Koreans. The Italian Beretta made M1s are super well made and rare in original condition. The Italians modified their M1s first to fire 7.62mm NATO and later rebuilt them as magazine fed weapons known as BM59s. Some were made selective fire...See photos....... Here's a site on the BM59 http://www.gunsmagazine.com/bm59/GCA0283.pdf
