The H&R and the Springfield on this thread came from the CMP and yes they are Service grade. I've seen real nice Garands come from the cmp and not so nice. I think the Greek batch being the worse. Then again i've seen $295 rack grade garands that look decent..Wowzers! That thing is sexy. You got it from CMP, you say? Is that a Service Grade or a Correct grade rifle? I want an M1 really badly just to shoot with on the weekends, but I'm a little nervous about dropping $600 on a rifle that may be in cruddy condition.
