Blueskies,
Glad the 6M's were still plentiful and you found one you liked. Yes, lots of temptations right now. From last Sat, in addition to the rack of 6M's:

Last Sat they had surplus M2 HXP in several packaging's and some Norwegian too. I believe they had some commercial M1 ammo also. Possibly some other calibers as well; I didn't pay much attention to it. A call would be best way to confirm.

You're getting me jonesing.

Not sure how the CMP runs their bolt actions these days...but...Do they happen to have any 1903s?

EDIT: Just called. 1903A3s, last one went out a couple weeks ago. A few dozen 6Mils available, and a few Collector HRAs and SAs. Was going to cruise out there tomorrow (LONG haul) and hand select one after seeing the pics, putting up a few others in the collection to pay for the "upgrade", but now I'm not so sure.

I was at the NS today and looked at the 6M Garands with the intent of buying one. I was disappointed in their condition and didn't get one. The stocks were not in great shape and very few of them had a cartouche. The chamber wear on most was 2 or 3. A couple had new CMP stocks but I wanted an original. There was one nice rifle with a birch stock, but I already have it's twin so didn't get it.

There was only one other person in the store.
