    they no longer have the tooling to recreate. IIRC the original Peacemaker Colt tooling went to Italy in the 90s.

      seller under discussion here is the M1 Garand.

      Springfield Armory made reproductions a few years ago.  They couldn't compete with the vintage surplus, because most people who want the rifle want it in large part for historical interest.

      Dry up the supply of surplus, though, and there's a good chance it will go back into production.

        and it would eliminate that surplus / re-import question.

        A Garand is a fine firearm, but it does want the people who carry / use it trained before they're let go on their own.
