Even more on the Korean Garands

They already shipped tens of thousands of these back in the 1990s.

    well, they are not eating anything, and Im sure they wont be thrown away. After the election ,I foresee these eventually making thier way back home.

    Correct, under the name “Blue Sky” in the early ’90s.

    IIRC they ran about $350 in decent shape.

    This issue with the Korean Garands is that Korea both bought Garands and was lent-leased Garands. They already looked through their stocks in the 90s and picked out the best ones. Then they said “Hey these are the ones we bought with our own money!” very loudly and sold them off on the open market. The US let them as we couldn’t prove anything.

    The problem for Korea now is that the US knows how many we sold them and how many we leased them. They’ve already sold off the number they could “own.” By default the ones left must be the leased articles. They can’t sell those off because they’re USA property.

    I can visualize the administration ordering them packed into CONEX boxes and put on a ship. Between the ports, however, they will fall overboard during ‘rough seas at night’.

    “Nice little box’a guns ya gots dere. Be a shame if anything happened to dem”.

    It’d be ‘politically expedient’, of course, in order to ‘keep them out of the wrong hands’, such as the CMP.

    It’s a damnable shame that this gang of thieves has control (for the time being) in Washington. If the Koreans can hold on another 2 1/2 years, I’m sure that an amicable deal can be struck and they can be brought home and adoptions can be made.

    If Bush had rescinded the Clinton executive order ending waivers for U.S.-built military weapons, we wouldn’t be having this discussion…
