Seeing a lot of Mosin stuff, where are the USGI WWII goodies at?

Cheap Russian bolt-actions are neat, but I know we have to have some WWII iron from this side of the pond on the forum.

Here's my 1943 SA M1 Garand in all of it's worn-out glory.

Got it from the CMP armory in Anniston, AL in 2007; now I just wish I had bought more ammo since it's too expensive to shoot now. It's a Field-grade M1 and was a Danish return, it's mostly all Springfield with a few italian-made Beretta replacement parts including the front sight, gas cylinder, gas cylinder screw, front stock ferrule, and bolt. Barrel is original to the receiver, lead-dipped.

And my other CMP purchase, a 1944 Inland M1 Carbine, the only GM product I'll ever own.

It has the Korean-era parts along with the high wood stock, probably going to leave it as-is but I want to pick up a nice walnut stock and lose the Italian birch replacement. The Carbine is actually relatively cheap to fire in comparison with the Garand since the ammo is only .38 per round, but I just never get around to order anything for it. It shoots straight as hell though and is a blast to fire.

My very first rifle match was with an M1 Carbine. I was surprised how accurate it was at 100 yards even though I had zero technique. I'm thinking about picking up a Garand at CMP Anniston in May and a buttload of ammo. Last time I was there, the collection of carbines looked like they had been dragged behind a tank for 100 miles. But the Kimber 82Gs and the Garands looked pretty good.
