M14/M1 Garand replicas

I am looking for rifles that can help me practice American style military drill with, so preferably an m14 or an m1 garand. Unfortunately in Canada, the replica guns doesn't seem to exist. However, the airsoft guns seem to be pretty close to the original in terms of weight and what not. I know that most of them have plastic stock. Does anyone know if it is possible to find a replicas with a real wood stock or something pretty strong at the least?

There are at least a few options for M14s, not sure about Garands though. Both will require that you get your age verified to access the classifieds section of this site.

Thanks for the replies, once I get a reply I will get started on the age verification. However, I've heard that from my more experienced buddies that real wood stock is pretty expensive, what kind of price range am I looking at? If I settle with plastic, how durable are they? Right now I am using hollow wood M1 garand replicas and they aren't too beat up.

You can get a real M14 or M1 wood stock for $50-$100 or so I would think, depending on condition.

Note that this is a modification kit for the KJW 10/22. You can buy the kit overseas, but you'll have to wait to be AV'ed to get the 10/22 itself.
That's the M1 Carbine stock kit not the M1 Garand. M1 carbine will be too short to drill with.

If you can find an airsoft gas Garand it's going to cost you about $900 to $1000. A clone M14 (with Plastic stock) will cost you about $400 or so. GBB M14 with wood stock will be around $700 (this will be about the weight of a real M14).

Your other option for a M1 Garand is to get a deactivated one. Which will run your about $800 to $1000 but it will be the real deal just won't be able to fire anything.

The GBB M14 I have weighs within a few ounces of the real thing. With the price, however, it's not worth paying $700 for a drill practice tool. You can look into buying a deactivated M1 for cheaper.

I see... if I were to get a plastic stock one, how strong are the stocks? Drilling with rifles mean they may fall on to the ground. (I usually practice on grass) I can see plastic not lasting too long if that happens.

It depends on the material. Some have solid resin stocks (arguably stronger than wood), and some have cheap hollow happy meal plastic stocks. Depends on what your willing to pay for.
