    Wife has a coworker whose husband recently died and she is fixin to sell some of the inventory.
    One thing that caught my eye is a M1 Garand and possibly a Charles Daly compact 1911
    Asking $1,500 for M1, 600 for Daly
    What say you?

    High for the Garand unless it's something special. Take more pictures and post on a Garand group / board.

    agree with guys above. Garand could be worth it depending on parts

    EVERYONE needs an M1 Garand . . . but that mike not be a good price. It depends on quite a few factors . . .

    I'd have a hard time doin' over $400 for a CD. The M1 - MIGHT be worth it, but IMO she's at the top of the price point, especially without a LOT more details.

    You van buy nice Garands from the CMP for $730 right now, so that one is priced a bit high, the pistol is on the high end as well. Is she trying to get the retail prices he paid for them?

    Garand should not go for over $1100 imo.

    For that price you can get an M1D or M1C from the CMP.
