Cool North Carolina Shooter

I decided after 6 years of wanting an M-1 I decided to take the plunge. Ordered an RM-1 Special from CMP and I am here to learn.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your first order...can't go wrong with a CMP Special for a shooter, and though refinished, you still get a USGI receiver and parts (outside the barrel, stock and stock metal).
Did you order a WRA, or the SA/HRA luck of the draw?

Good news is those ship rather quickly.

Lots of threads/info here on them....biggest thing is to do a good strip, clean and lube...they will be very dry with fresh park, not to mention you could find refinish residue in places like the inside of the bolt (have found it in 2 of mine).
And the new production stocks typically take some fine-tuning/fitting. Here is an excellent how-to thread to walk you through it...

Look forward to seeing what you get.
Any questions, please ask away!

Welcome and regards,
Rob

Start making plans to shoot the Eastern Games at Camp Butner in May.
It's the best place to learn near you.
Start asking what gear and things to know here on the forum.
Bring a buddy and share rifles. Do whatever it takes.
We all started this way.

I shoot with the Cross Creek Rifle and Pistol club from Fayetteville, NC. There is a regular group from the club that goes to Butner.

Getting out and becoming part of the community of JCG and XTC shooters is the best way to enjoy your M1. You can still do all that other stuff like take pictures, and pour over production numbers and heat lots, and swap parts around if you like that sort of thing. The main thing is to get out there and shoot it with others the way the CMP intended. You will then realize that the gun itself isn't as important as the experience of the shooting community, and goals achieved with it. Now you need a Springfield, and a vintage rifle to get into the three gun games aggregate.
