I friend of mine passed away a couple years ago. And I've recently been helping his wife liquidate some of his gun collection. I've been sticking to the things I'm more familiar with, but she wants me to sell one of the Garand's next, and I don't know much about them. At least, not enough to form a for-sale ad to meet my own standards. * I was told this particular one is a National Match. How do I verify this is true? * It's serial number is 3706948. From the research I did, I show this was manufacturerd toward the end of March in 1945. Does that sound about right? * How does one determine the value of a Garand? They seem to be selling for $800-$4000 and everywhere in between. Any certain features I should look for? * This one seems incredibly clean. I know my friend has owned it for 17 years and I'm almost positive he has never personally fired it. Is it possible that it was never fired at all? Forgive me if this was a stupid question. I'm just wondering if it's common to find new "old stock" surplus Garands. * The stock has "FA" stamped into it. Does this stand for Fulton Armory? If so, can anyone explain what that means? Any advice or general info would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to learn as much as possible about these before I even attempt to sell them.
