    I dealt with Tony Pucci years ago before he handed the business over to his son. Can't say much other than my own experiences were OK.

    I bought a VAR barrel and some spring kits from Tony back about y2000 and had nothing but good things to say about the transactions. It might have been Tony that swapped out the barrel for me, too. I've slept a time or two since then.

    Much like Hawk, I haven't worked with them since his son has taken over.

    Maybe things are good with Tony's son.

    I used to buy parts from them on a regular basis but I gave up after my login kept failing even after resetting my password multiple times.

    It's like everything else, for instance surplus ammo, you should have gotten it while it was available, parts for the M1 are running out and no one, unlike M14 parts is making anymore, it is not profitable.

    I bought from them pretty regularly back in the day. Was top notch back then. I imagine its the same thing now as I have not heard anything negative from about them, ever.

    I know Garand prices are rising, but think what he's asking for their offerings are even more on the high side. Good Service Grades can be found on the open market for about $400 less. Only bought his springs from him in the past......

    Complete rifles have always been high from them. But, consider you are essentially getting a brand new accurate rifle.

    Re: M1 garand at Orion 7

    I bought a so called match rifle from Orion 7 back in about 2008, the rifle was not a match rifle, it just had a new Criterion barrel installed on it. The receiver bridge was cracked, they wouldn't own up to it, accused me of shooting hot reloads, which I did not, I only shot CMP surplus ammo through it, very little I might add, plus it was about the most inaccurate rifle a man could buy. After some back and forth with the "builder", I'm glad I paid with a credit card, because the card company had to intervene to get my money back. That's my experience with them.
