I know nothing about M1's. What should I look for if I head over there?
Just my opinion….there are so many variables to consider. Think about what you want before you go.,.shooter? Showpiece? Heirloom?
Shooter: ME and TE are below “3”. These are on the hang tag. Stock fits well. Sights hold position. Typically a little cheaper but not as pretty. Minimal rust/pitting.
Showpiece: All of the above and are usually the higher priced models, like the SA in the 6mm serial range. Appears new, all parts match.
Collector/heirloom: all of the above and a rare version like IHC “gap” or a collector grade. Sniper variants are nice.
I’ll be glad to help you all I can
