    As you all probably know the M1Garand. Replaced the Springer 1903 . General Patton said it was the most important weapon ever designed....that sure is high praise from a Tank guy. This is mine. Its a CMP program RM1SPECIAL model. The receiver dates it to 1940.

    Looks like CMP does a great job on refurbishing the M1. How does it shoot ? let us know. Their prices on the Service Grade are decent. About 3-400 under what people are TRYING to get around here....:eek: And a close inspection reveals most of them are really RACK GRADE !!

    This one is more than 3 or 4 hundred. It falls in the 1000 category all said and done but you are right they do an excellent job refurbishing. I hope to have a range report this coming week. I'm chomping at the bit to go shoot it.

    Just got a 98 Mauser today to go along with my M95 Steyr. I've posted pictures of the Steyr, but I haven't taken any pictures of the mauser yet.

    What I ment DUTCHS was around here a RACK GRADE is goin for $1000 and up. What CMP advertises for 6-700, and in better shape according to their description. "Nowhere" close to what yours is.

    Yes it did. I like the history of it as well as having the honor of owning and shooting one. A lot of Blood,Sweat and Tears in their history. I guess this is a great time to thank all of our vets.!!!! Thanks guys and gals....without you all sacrificing America doesn't exist.
