Thinking of getting an M1 and am looking at an SA with a serial #2613***.It is in very good condition overall.Number,s not matching,but I am looking for a shooter anyway.Barrel is dated 5/60 and no import mark that I could find.Looked to have a good bore,but didn't have bore light.Didn't see any pitting.Asking $600.Is that a fair price?What should I check on it?I remember a long time ago reading about welded receiver's.How do you check for that?Any help/info would be great...........

Numbers don't match ? the only numbers on a Garand (other than the SN on the receiver) are the PART numbers and date of barrel manufacture

The numbers he needs to check are:
Serial number and the heat lot codes on the right leg of the receiver.

Those heat lot codes should match up to the serial number range for that rifle.

The welded receiver thing is hard to find on the well made ones......If in doubt- get your trusted friend to look it over or just do not buy that rifle.
