M1 Garand

I was in a local gun store today (picking up my T/C Encore 209X50) and I noticed a Garand on the used gun rack. I picked it up and immediately realized the receiver was not USGI. I just about fell over when I saw the $525.00 price tag. If they are getting that for M1 parts cobbled onto an aftermarket receiver, then I am curious as to what a CMP M1 (I have my grandfathers and mine) would be worth? Anyone know what a Sprinfield Armory receivered CMP M1 is going for these days?

My CMP M1 is an CMP arsenal rebuild circa 1965, in (way) above average condition, but my Grandfathers is an honest to goodness Match Grade CMP M1 in excellent condition. Having done the CMP thing, I know that it really doesn't affect pricing of M1 Garands on the open market, as most people are unwilling or unable to meet the requirements. thanks for the replys!
I agree. CPM is a great program and the only really reliable source for M1's. NEVER EVER shoot an M1 built on an aftermarket receiver without having a qualified gunsmith check it first. The quality of the aftermarket receivers I have examined are all of questionable quality and have yet to have one headspace "good". Abused/worn parts hung on an aftermarket receiver does not make for a quality piece.
