I called the store early afternoon yesterday, 3 rack grade M1s still in the racks and 2 racks of M1 Specials. More rack grades out today (Friday), it's all they have to put out. Mother Hubbard redux. I was thinking of dropping in on my way home from Florida....nah!

That's more encouraging than I thought it would be. I think we will stop by next Thursday after all.

Default Rack grade HRA

I picked up a pretty nice rack-grade HRA on carbine day as a consolation prize.

Came with a nice WWII SA cartouched stock and 53 SA barrel that measured a 2 at the muzzle. Very nice shooter as well.

That looks quite nice; I'd be all over it.

Why was this considered a rack grade? That's a nice looking rifle!

Don't know... it's at least a field grade. It's the main advantage of going to the store in person.

Default What to expect

Hey! I just finished the AMC class and the class got to go to the store on tuesday. There was a few rack grades there. Only two of us bought rack grades. I put back a USMC rebuild, dated 66. The other gentleman in the class was very happy about that and got it. I would have got it but it was the 1st one I looked at and I put it back. I did get a 5.9 million that wasn't all that bad and it even had lock bar sights on it. I shot it today at the new range. Boy is that place very very nice, but that is another story. Just thought I would give you guys a heads up. We took two and there was about 5 left. Wanted another one but hey I had already spent enough this week. The AMC Class ROCKS! I learned a lot and I really enjoyed it.

Good luck guys.
Clay
