I arrived at the store around 2:15 CST and picked up two rifles today. A Remington 3.34 million M1903 modified with a serialized bolt body matching the receiver. The barrel is a replacement SA 3-44. The inspector was “11” not Mr. Beard.

Also picked up an all Eddystone m1917. Overall a great haul today. I need to post pictures and take off the hand guard on the Remington M1903 to see if it has the vice marks on the barrel.

Friday opening report
 
There were 11 customers at opening and all racks were full. Most interested seemed to be 1903/M1917ís.

Armors today are Bobby, Ellyn and Ben.

UPDATE: I need to make a couple corrections to my AUCTION post from yesterday which I have also undated on my original post from yesterday. This very nice Daisy Air Rifle camouflage paint designed was designed by CMP employee MATT CARROLL and hand painted by him. ALL processes from the auction will be donated, 100%. Whoever posted this information to Facebook, great idea, please send me a PM so I can ensure you got the updated information. There has been NO bids since my first post yesterday!!! You guys need to knock the dust off your wallets and let the moths out and DONATE to this great cause....

I got a 4.2 Springfield w/ and HRA barrel. The main reason I bought it was the slant cut WRA op rod (small relief cut), WRA trigger group, IHC rear wind age knob and IHC front sight.

Pics later.

I was stationed in Beaumont in 1969 after returning from Vietnam as a USMC Instructor-Inspector for an Infantry Reserve Unit while recovering from wounds... Great town and great times...

Today my son Travis and I had the honor to meet in person Mr. Charlie Brown.

Mr Brown helped my son and I with invaluable information on which of several M1 we were looking at that would be a good purchase. With his help we decided on a very nice '42 WRA with several WRA parts including a bolt and a slant uncut op-rod. The stock is a nice USGI with some grunge that is hiding a beautiful pattern that will look excellent when cleaned up.

The M1 was also Tom approved. Can't beat that! Two of the most knowledgeable M1 experts giving an M1 their approval!

A while back Mr Brown also helped Travis and I with some suggestions on the CMP AMC, (that we completed this week), that really helped us get the most out of the class.

In conversation with Mr Brown I mentioned that Travis's birthday was a few days ago and Mr Brown presented him with beautiful knife that he had engraved a M1 on the blade. Beautiful! He gave me an awesome M1 Garand coffee cup.

Mr. Brown, you sir, are truly a class act. Thank you for spending time with us.
