Store Report 1-24-13
 
There first in line at 8:20. As reported no Service Grades but some really nice finds! Found 3 Rack Grade HRAs. Stocks were a little rough but all of them gauged 2 or better. One was a touch over 1 with HRA barrels. One had a very serviceable HRA 3/8 DAS stock. All had HRA barrels. Nice winter project stocks. The Kimbers are back and some were BEAUTIFUL! Almost tempted (again) there but enough is enough on the Kimbers. Got a 1530 rnd can of Carbine ammo. A nice value! .39 a round. Also got a 200 round can of HXP for our club use. My Bud My Turn went with and made the trip a great adventure. Thanks Bill..The rack grades were great and some great shooters came home. Lots had cartouches but barrels were shot. Those looking for stocks and parts guns did well on those examples. All in all an A+ day. Bob said enough Carbine ammo to last a little while longer. Over and Out..Gary

You had me at "really nice finds," haha.

I'm heading there tomorrow, gotta check the rackers for a few more shots at a consecutive! Any unusual serial number ranges in the HRA rackers? 4.6, 5.4, 5.7s?

I looked through most of them and didn't find anything unusual, except for the 4.7 HRA that had an O-66 rebuild marking on the top of the receiver. Almost bought that one, and probably should have. It might still be there on Saturday if Gary didn't snag it. :)

I wouldn't be surprised if Gary got it.

What did the Navy B/Rs look like? How many?

There were 39 of them in the racks when I visited yesterday. They looked good overall, but most of them had high throat erosion readings (over 7 or 8). Muzzles were generally close to or under 2. I found six of them with throat erosion readings under 5, and I picked one of those out for an out-of-state buyer.

If you're making a trip to buy a Navy BR, call the guys at the North Store first, and they'll let you know what remains.

PM sent "GG" aka GarandGrabber or GaylordGuy :)

Pretty sure one of the RG was a 4.6 Let you know when they arrive. Had em shipped. Bob also said most of the ones we grabbed were put out this am. He didn't give a time frame on how long the Carbine ammo would last. Guess one guy bought $56,000.00 worth. No that's not a misprint

An obvious candidate for the CMP Supporter Hall of Fame.

Not in my book. That ammo was selling fast. Spreading it around to more shooters wouldn't hurt CMP one bit. I want a reasonable limit for store sales. Good Shooting......
