Default Springfield Special Grades

Does anyone know if there are any Springfield Special Grade rifles at the North Store? I plan on going over there soon from Illinois. I've been planning this for awhile so I hope that there are!! I won't be able to go to at least the first of the month.

Not been any there since about Feb. They are no longer listed on the rifle sales page either. HRA Service Grade Special is the best you will find at the NS.

That's what I got in early June. I hope I am not violating rules here but I started a thread at another forum about these HRA SGSs http://www.gunandgame.com/forums/m1-...rands-cmp.html IMO and in the opinion of the guys behind the counter at the CMP that these rifles are an exceptional value. Remember the Garand was perfected in the 50's and these rifles were unissued barrels and receivers (brand new!) with new walnut stocks.



The lower rifle is my '55 CMP HRA SGS. The upper is my "55 SA Garand. I am proud of both!

In a very recent question, similar to yours, another forum member ask just about the same thing. The answer from 'O' was that these rifles are put together to meet actual orders ( 474 rifles on back order as I remember) not future demand estimates plus actual orders. My interpretation of that is that you won't be able to buy a CMP Special at either store but have to order it the normal way.

The best available at the stores is the HRA SG Special which is not a bad deal by any definition.

I was unaware that the CMP Special was de-listed from the Sales page. I'll check that. Were I you I would call Customer Service pronto and ask if the CMP Special is still available. It probably is but under stricter availability.

I wasn't sure if he was refering to the CMP Special or the Springfield Service Grade Special. My statement about not being on the Rifle Sales page was for the Service Grade special.
