Garands are CHEAP here in CANADA. A buddy bought five of them, got to hand pick them, and ended up with 2 that were as NEW. Total cost, $ 500 CAN for all five [ that works out to $66 US each ]. We cleaned the cosmoline out of the one he kept, took it to the range, and first five shot group with hunting ammo and open sights was 1 1/2" @ 100 yds. In Canada, the Garands are cheaper than Chinese SKS.

Since the laws changed recently, US GI M-14 rifles have basically become wall hangers here. I can buy them for $ 250 - $450 CAN, strip them for parts, and hand the registered owner back the uncut US GI M-14 receiver as a paperwieght, or so he can keep his "Converted Auto" status.

SInce SA M1A receivers cost about $ 600 CAN, and the wait is about a year to get one, it makes economic sense for me to think about a Garand / M-14 bastard.

Yes, it does make sense!

I wonder what it would take to legally ship an M14 parts kit (i.e. without receiver) to the US? I could use a complete parts kit for an M14 in order to build up a semi-auto on an M1A or chicom M14s receiver.
