The CMP is selling them for 400

The CMP is selling re-patriated Garands of original Winchester and Sringfield manufacture that have been maintained with foreign parts consisting of PB (Beretta), BMB (Breda) and VAR (Danish) barrels over the intervening decades.
They are not of Beretta manufacture.

A couple of years ago there were a few around. They sold for around $600. Do the numbers match? e-mail Mel Bishop at melbishop.com He could give you a good ballpark figure.

ok i don't think it is a springfield,winchester,IH ect.just beretta
except the op rod is springfield.
Serial Number PB 5409, Barrel Has A Tight Muzzle And Was A 2 On The Throat Erosion Gage, The Bore Is Excellent, Caliber 30-06. The Receiver, Barrel, Trigger Group, Are Beretta Marked, The Op Rod Is SA. The Wood Stock Appears To Be Dyed Birch. The Left Side Of The Receiver Says “BERETTA-ARM ROMA-ITALIA”

The value will remain about what CMP is selling them for, until they run out.
After that who knows..?

AIM was selling Beretta rifles for about $600 a couple of years ago. They were mostly from kit's assembled on a receiver. The #'s didn't match. They were in vg+ to excellent condition. If it was all PB marked, the S/N's matched on the bolt, receiver, and stock, it would be worth a good bit more.

What you have is a full Italian made M1.
They were made for the Danes.
They were made on Winchester machinery in the 1950's.
They are not the same as the CMP rifles.
I paid $800 for on in the condition you describe.
There was one on Guns America for approx. $1000 some week or so ago.
They should bring a premium even without matching numbers.

I'v got both a Beretta made and a Breda made rifle. But for some reason I haven't been able to get my hands on an IH at a decent price. But with the new pricing scheme from CMP, that may soon change!

Bill, I wish you were around last year when I sold my PB Garand for $600. It was a kit gun, I had a Beretta receiver, and got a vg+ all matching PB kit. The numbers on kit were all matching, but the bolt, stock numbers did not match the receiver. Yes, it was an all Beretta, but it did not match. That is a value killer, unless you find someone with more cash than sense. And this one has an Springfield op rod, how is that all Italian?

I think when everyone realizes that they are rare in any case and that none are coming in the price will rise.
The Winchester rod is odd.
