    I ordered two CMP Service Grade M1 Garands last month and they came in this week (HRA & Springfield Armory). They both are in excellent condition w/ the H&R being matching except for the bolt (SA). The stock & handguards are walnut and have strong correct H&R markings. The SA is a early WWII (1942) rifle that was a Korean war rebuild (SA 1952 bbl); I requested a WWII rifle. It is also all post war SA except for the bolt (WRA). The stock set is also walnut and in equally great shape, however there are no markings. They were both shipped in heavy cosmolene so they needed quite a bit of cleaning to get the greasy stuff off.


    If you have not ordered your own M1 Garand, you need to. The are shipping out some very nice Service Grade rifles for $595 + shipping. Both of these are in better shape than the Service Grade post war SA rifle I received back in 1995.

    Those are two VERY nice examples.

    I'm surprised the CMP has not run out of them as yet.

    Check the bottom of the grip for a 'CMP' stamp.

    Nice rifles :) .

    The H&R has a proper H&R marked stock; the SA has a SA walnut stock, but during the rebuild it was probably sanded down.

    I wouldn't mind getting one. How did you qualify for them? I'm trying to remember how you go about it but it escapes me right now.

    If your are a member of any local gun clubs I would start by check there to see if that would qualify you.

    All you need is to be a member of a authorized club (ie..Clark Rifles, etc.), or a former service member (My VFW & American Legion Membership cards worked on my last order).

    It really is not hard; attached is the link.

    They also sell surplus ammo at good prices. I just bought two cans of Greek surplus 30-06 in 8 rd clips and bandoleers.

    Nice rifles... i turned a buddy of mine on to CMP. He just picked up an HRA recently thru CMP... beautiful shape, just need to test fire, and see what parts might need replacing.

    Do you post on jouster as well?

    Cheers!
