Default 6.13.13 North Store Report

I found myself in the Sandusky area for work so i braved the bad weather and swung by the CMP north store today. It was nice and dry inside with plenty of coffee and a surprisingly nice selection of rifles.

First and most importantly the 1917 "twins" are still there.

There was a nice selection of barreled receivers, M44s, chromed 1917s, Garands, and "bad" krags. Except for one of them the Krags were in pretty bad shape one was rusted shut. They were only $50 I seriously considered taking the nicest one home but searching for all the parts would probably be annoying.

HRA service grade, service grade specials, and field grades were plentiful. There were no service grade Springfields but there was a nice selection of field grades all had ME>2.

There was a full rack of "rusty" Kimbers I don't know much about these rifles but they all appeared nice I didn't see a spot of rust on the couple I handled.

What drew my attention was a rack of about 30 Service and Field Grade Winchesters. The service grades were in great shape, one had a matching WRA barrel.

I left with a beautiful field grade Winchester with an LMR barrel ME<1 TE=2 and an NM marked op rod. I realize it post war maybe even 60's rebuild but I couldn't put it down.

oh i didn't even consider that it was a RRAD.... google seems to think that the barrel markings would be consistent with that. I can't wait for it to get here so i can crack it open and see.

She's been taking it well especially since I just had an HRA delivered last month.

I picked up dinner on the way back to from the airport to lighten the blow.

Nice Winchester! How much are they asking for the SG and FG's? My wife is from the Detroit area, so next time we're visiting from MN I hope to be able to make the trip down to the North Store (she just doesn't know that yet).
