    Just saw this and it again shows the Present Administration is anti-gun.

    You had doughts?

    I've known since 1968 you couldn't trust a Democrat!

    I have been fooled once since then, 1994 voted for Jay Inslee, he voted for the Brady bill even though his phone line was 3 to 1 against. We kicked him out at the next election and he had to move to the west side of the state(WA) where he could find enough liberals to put him back into office.

    Arlington Ordinance imported M-1 from Korea in the early 90's and reworked them if necessary and sold them as an imported guns.

    Great left overs from the cold war, I doubt if any gang-bangers want to load a Garand with a clip.

    As much as I despise Oblama, this story is neither accurate nor fair. The Korean government has been trying to get export approvals so they can sell 100,000 plus surplus U.S. rifles (86,000 garands and 22,000 carbines) to U. S. importers for more than 5 years (long before the Obamunist administration) and have been blocked by U.S. government objections. However, these objections have been based upon the fact the the rifles were loaned by the Defense Dept to Korea, and remain U.S. property. When they became surplus to Korean needs, under the various agreements, the arms were supposed to be returned to the U.S. Army. Instead, the Korean government is trying to sell them to raise some 108 million dollars for their own defense establishment. The stories as to why the U.S. objects (such as the complaint that they might lead to accidents, etc )originated in Korea, not the U.S. and are an attempt by Korea to get past the fact that we still own these rifles, not Korea, and Korea has no legal right to "sell" them to anyone. If the Koreans simply followed the agreement and returned them to the U.S. the rifles would most likely simply be transferred to the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) and sold to U.S. citizens. The Koreans do not want to do this. Korea did get in some diplomatic "hot water" some years back when they illegally sold off some garands to U.S. arms dealers without U.S. government approval (the so-called "Blue Sky" garands). They are trying a end run this time around for a much larger sale.

    korea probably does not need them. we probably gave them FREE M16's that we'll be buying back when they are trash. oz

    Jim, thanks for the clarification. There is definitely enough crap going on without wasting time on ghosts.

    Other countries, notably Denmark and Greece among them, have followed the rules and returned garands and carbines to the U.S. Army in recent years, and these have been, in turn, transferred to the CMP for sale to U.S. citizens. I purchased two of the "Greek Returns" just last year from CMP (one of which was in near mint condition and apparently unfired since manufacture) so the Koreans have an example, but would apparently rather make money from rifles that were only loaned to them. So while there are many threats and dangers facing gun ownership and the Second Amendment from the Obamunists and Democraps, this is not really one of them.

    That's interesting. Do you have an article somewhere that I can reference?

    I agree with Jim Rich on this one. The anointed one is NOT responsible for this situation. Now that's not to say he isn't trying to take every gun away from his basement, just not this time.

    I actually have one of the Arlington Ordinance Garands which I bought at the Ventura CA gunshow 1994 and walked right out the door with it because it is C&R(thanks to Bob Dole).

    I am now pretty good friends with the guy who rebuilt all of those 25,00 Garands and We just recently converted mine from being a 30-06 Tanker to a full sized 30-06 with a National Match Barrel. I also redid the stock. The gun shoots beautifully and will easily do 2" at 100yds I think once I've gotten used to it, it will do way better than that.

    He also gave me a 5 gallon bucket full of once fired Remington Brass which was used to test fire Garands he rebuilt. It yeilded 1400 rounds so I have brass for along time to come.

    Picture doesn't do this one justice, it came out well.
