When a couple of these came up on G-Broker about 8 months ago I was hoping more would come available so when some showed up @ Palmetto State Armory about 2 weeks ago I plopped down some coin and purchased one. Early reports where mostly good but there where a couple of duds also delivered to a few customers so I waited and wondered what I would get.

Well Big Brown delivered mine today and I am very pleased with it. The Transit case is in great shape, the scope is clear and the turrets work well. The stock is clean and the metal is all in great shape. The bore is beautiful and except for the scope not being a matching on it you would be hard to upgrade on this one.

Glad you got a nice one. It was a limited time opportunity and they are an interesting variant of M1Ds that are quite rare in the US.
I'd get an Italian web sling for it, and call it a day.

I also want to get an Italian flash suspressor for it.

Kinda bummed I didn’t pick one up, but glad to hear you got a nice one


Thanks Gentlemen, figured they were not going to last long so I jumped in right away, and am very happy I did.

Beautiful!

It's interesting that it has a BM59 converted bolt (so does mine). I guess it makes sense as they have presumably refurbed them in the 60s.

I did order a book in Italian on Garands in Italy (I have nearly zero knowledge of the language, but I hope Google translate can help), it'll be an interesting read and I'll post my findings here. Will also post the pics of my rifle soon (work gets in the way). It's not as nice as Miller Tyme's, but I'm happy I got it. Good thing my wife doesn't know how much it cost :)
