    Recently saw a huge stack of Garands that the Philippine solders were working on. . One soldier was dragging the Garand by the butt end with muzzle getting scratched /beat up while he was apparently using it like a cane. Appeared they weren’t very particular about proper handling since the Garands were leaving their possession.

    Have any of our members received one of these Phillipine return Garands?

    Not me (I've got the only two I need).

    I am interested in seeing the condition as well!

    I don't think the CMP is advertising that specific rifles are Philippine returns. There is speculation on the CMP board that some of the new M1s being sent out are Philippine with a "Y" on the tag, but no confirmation from CMP employees.

    Here's one thread of interest...

    I got this one mid August, I have no idea if it one of the Turk or the Phillipine returns, they don't tell you. Others online seem to think July/August is about when they switched over but who knows, the CMP doesn't tell you anything. It was a WW2 era rifle with most of it's finish and other than some grease on the buttstock that as well was in really good shape. I've been told the buttstock is for an early HRA and fairly rare. No “Y” or any other writing on the back of the tag.

    Nice! Welcome to the M1 Garand owners club. Now get out there and shoot it!
