Your CMP Springy's wood looks much nicer than my CMP Springy's wood. Did you refinish it or get a new stock?

Gunners762 I am turning green with envy. You are getting some nice rifles there. The CMP also has the last stock of ammo on enblocs that I know of. It's not cheap but before they released it gunshow shysters were hawking enblocs for a dollar a piece.

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.

The rifles that you get from CMP will be in good condition and safe to fire but will have mixed parts from different manufacturers unless you buy a real expensive grade. The only chance you take will be the condition of the stock. Some stocks will be near new and some will have the classic 'beaver chewed' look; ugly but still usable. Replacement stocks are available from different sources if cosmetics are important. Best of all, CMP rifles will be genuine US military with forged receivers; not cast receivers like so many others sell. One of my Garands has a pretty nice birch stock. The other has a walnut beaver special that I haven't got around to repairing yet.

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..

These two rifles came from the CMP. The 1903 & 1903A3... Im sure my other two probably did at some point.​
You really can't wrong with these at the prices the CMP sold them for. eventually they'll be sold out. The prices are only going to continue to go up.​
