On 7/31 south store had about 20 of the $1200 m1d (fg or sg ...i can't remember). One had an interesting stock...an SA-over-something with large ordnance wheel and a fresh as new SA-over W rebuild stamp. The rebuild stamp was so fresh that it still had splinters around the edges.

Default M1D grades

Quote:
From what I understand, the different grades of rifle really pertains to grade of barrel.. For the M1D's that is..
well, it actually applies to the condition of the wood as well, and the amount of metal wear also seems to come into play. The rack grade M1Ds at the S.S. have very, very rough wood. I would shoot for a field grade, even if you have a new M1D barrel - assuming their is still a difference in the quality of the wood...just my 2cts worth.

Random... While i'm admittedly trying to save a few bucks here I don't wish to be a penny wise and a pound foolish either. Metal finish and wood condition are certainly important to me, I just hope I can find some happy medium within my budget.. At this point I believe the North Store offers better/more options. I appreciate your input..

Its nice to get a early Korean war dated barrel pre-July-1953. A Korean war dated M1D brings a premium for collecters. The forgotten war is long not forgotten. Even though The M1D's were fielded at Mid-war and latter. I found one in the spring at the north store with a 2-53 dated barrel. The M1D's were used a lot on the DMZ after the war too Lot's of the early Korean M1D's had Lyman Alaskan scopes some with B-prefix and some with out. The M84 scope production was delayed till after the war with production problem's. http://www.milsurps.com/showthread.php?t=43553
