Jan 19 North Store Report
The wife and I drove 3 1/2 hours and arrived before the doors opened. One other gentleman besides us had the run of the store for at least the first 1 1/2 hours. I went home broke but with a very nice 03A3 Remington and a Post war still in the grease M1. Noted in the store were the following:
M1 Correct ($3000 ) 16
M1 Postwar Correct ($2000 collectors grade) 34
M1D Field Grade 9
M1D Service 13
M1C Field 21
RM1 Special 24
WR Special 9
M1D Rack 25
M1C Service 49
HRA Correct ($2000 collectors) 25
03a3 Smith 2
03A3 Remington 24
M1 Garand Drill 44 total
03A3 Drill 6
Also saw several air rifles, a few barrels and I believe some Carbine stocks.
Behind the counter they have the 200 and 240 round cans of ammo and Greek M1 bayonets for $68
Box each of leather slings and cloth web slings.
Sorry I didn't record all of the prices.

Thanks for the report,,,,What post war collector did you go home with?

I picked up a March 1955 Springfield M1 Garand Collector Grade. Tempting, but I couldn't do it, were the WWII era Collector grades.

WW II era for $3,000 are correct grade, not collector grade

Wow! Sounds like a South store report.

What are they asking for the 03-A3 rifles and is there any price difference between Remington and Smith Corona?

jwvargas 01-19-2017 09:52 PM

$650 plus tax for either. Limit 1 per person.

Any speculation on the origin of all these correct and collector grades? Is CMP for some reason just blowing out these rifles rather than auctioning them off?
