    Because if you put an M1 against an AR or M4 or M16...its fire power compared in caliber is superior. Yes it is limited in round capacity. But 30.06 will go thru 3/4" or less of steel at 100yrs.

    It can go thru body armor and a kevlar helmet...that is scary for a battle rifle that was made in the early 20th century... The CMP has thousands of rifle ready to be purchased by civilians.

    But think about this...if BHO starts this everyone is going to run to get one and then it will eliminate the stock that the CMP has at the moment (not much if you checked the currentwebsite).

    you eliminate the stock and eliminate the money from the people (at $995.00 a rifle). The C clips you can find in amazon...but the rifles only at the CMP.


    they did it with the ARs then the Ammo now the battle rifles...it is called drain the resources game...cut the supply and make it hard to get by inflating the price or cutting the source.

    That is playing for keeps guys.
    That's why I own the LMT MKS chambered in .308. :) An AR by another name... AR-10!

    Wrong, he can impose an Import Ban through the State Dept. on Licensed cargo. Firearms is "licensed cargo". This Korea re-import of M1's has actually been going on since he took the WH. There is a couple hundred thousand M1's we gave the ROK after the intervention in the 50's. ROK does not want them anymore. We the people would like to own a "fresh" packed M1 in cosmoline vintage ready for issue.. OK-OK I own one. But through CMP.
    I believe it was over 300K that they wanted to return but State Dept would not issue a license. MY ISSUE......Who they going to give/sell them to? You know they won't spend the money on destroying them.

But in my hands, I doubt with this firearm I'd be much of s threat to any opposing force.

    Come to the range with me my boy and will reach out to at least the 200 yrd line even with my bad eyes and open sights. George S. Patton, Jr. proclaimed it, "the greatest single battle implement ever devised by man." You can't get any plainer then that.

    M1 Garands are hard to come by currently. Long wait times ( 120-180 days ) from the CMP and costs from $650 and up for a service grade H&R.

    I paid about a grand for my Garand, special grade, and have enjoyed it since receiving it. I'd probably shoot it more then I do but ammo isn't cheap these days. Although really considering investing in starting to reload my own. Every time I go to the range it's a real head turner after busting off the first round.

    Yep, those are about a grand after shipping. And have the same 120-180 day wait time.

    As to it being legal for 0bama to ban the reimport, yes he can. But by law he cannot stop the CMP from having them. Because CONgress set it up specifically to get firearms like the M1 Carbine and M1 Garands into the hands of civilians.
