Default Search for a nice M1C

My wife and I drove to the north store yesterday, Friday, to find a nice M1C.
Lucky for us there were only a few customers, so we pulled 2 chairs up to the M1C rack and started our inspection.
Priority's were muzzle and throat readings, matching numbers, and general appearance. there were about 1 dozen service grade M1C rifles. I eliminated the field grade M1Cs from consideration because of muzzle and throat readings.
I ended up buying a nice rifle. Serial number#3,447,764. It had a matching number mount base..
The barrel is a HRA 8/51 and has a m/t reading of 2/2. I could have had a m/t reading of 1/2, but not with a matching # base.
As I recall, only one other rifle had a matching base.
My thanks to all posters here for educating me about M1Cs.
Jim C
