Smile New Guy in FL Panhandle

Hello fellow enthusiasts. Lurking & learning here.

I live 6 hours from the SS but chose to mail order. Placed my order in the mail on a Monday, got my replies by email on Wednesday saying the Garand had shipped. Friday it was there when I got home. The case was missing two of the rods which hold it together but the cardboard box had prevented any damage, thank heavens! There was no clip with it so I called the CMP and it arrived the next day.

The Garand is spectacular. A Springfield, serial number 1,192,XXX, manufactured in January 1943, and yes the barrel is correct! Wow - Stalingrad, meat rationing, Nikola Tesla passed, Guadalcanal, etc., and the thing looks like it was made yesterday. The new CMP stock probably adds to this effect but still, she is truly flawless with a ME of 3, a TE of 2 and not a blemish of any kind on any surface. Thanks CMP!!!!!!!
