Default SS or NS for an M1D?

Fellows, was hoping to drive to the N. store this month with the bride to hand pick an M1D but Lyme Disease has me pretty well done up..

Anyhoo.. my choices i figure would be the "luck of the draw" mail order or an agent.. Question is, if I reach out for an agent which particular location would be best?

Apologies if my questions seem a little disjointed and I appreciate any insights..

Jack

Jack, last week there were only two M1Ds in the rack at the South store. Orest said that they had another 250 or so but that they were not in the store location. They may have restocked this week but I would definitely get an agent for the transaction and give him instructions on what you are looking for. The best on the rack is not always worth buying.....especially if the supply on the floor is limited.

NS has had a bunch in each grade but the Nationals may have changed that. I'd suggest that you call each store and talk to the counter guys. They will be able to tell you before you decide.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the insights.. What I'm looking for is a Rack Grade D.. Barrel condition is of no real concern to me but I'd want the rest of the rifle to be as "nice" as can be.. From what I understand, the different grades of rifle really pertains to grade of barrel.. For the M1D's that is.. So an agent with a particular eye for D's would be my best options at a location with at least a couple to choose from..

Thanks again for the thoughts..

And here I thought the M1D was all about the barrel!

I know the NS had about 20 Rack Grade M1D's about 2 weeks ago for $900. Will be heading there on Saturday and see what they have left.
