I just couldn't get past that stock.
That one won’t slip out of your hands for sure!

Other rifles remain about the same.

Good luck on your searches.
Are these numbers representative of rifles sold?

Default Rifles

There were 75 at opening and 51 at closing so 24 were sold or relocated by store staff. Not to fill mail order.

I'm about 1.5 hours north of you and have thought of going myself. Long, long drive with possibly no luck of a well stocked shelf. If I go, it might when the latest influx of garands start hitting the shelves. Just my two cents.

Default Hackberry Stocks

Any word on the Hackberry stocks as far as long term continued use. I've bought one FG with a Hackberry stock and was not satisfied with it at all. I didn't buy the rifle for the stock I bought it because it was a really nice rifle for a FG. The stock looked like it was finished by a 3 year old and felt like it was sanded with a brick. I refinished it and it took the stain well and although it looked good, I still didn't like it because it looked more like a stock that should have been on a hunting rifle.
So I ended up purchasing a CMP walnut stock set and the rifle looks right and looks good. The down side is I now have more invested than if I had bought a SG rifle. I don't think I would buy another Hackberry stocked rifle unless it was something truly special. Does anyone know if they are here to stay.

Could you imagine a roadtrip to Anniston together? A Longhorn and an Aggie sharing a car for 10 and a half hours.... lol!

The advice about awaiting new rifles is good advice. What is the forecast looking like?

The newest Garand is what, 61 years old, and the oldest is 80+. Stocks are the only part that's organic; they are becoming rare.
CMP wants to move these as quick as possible with the smallest investment. If they raised the price of the rifles by $140 or so to cover a nice walnut how do you think that would work?

The hackberrys are perfectly shootable and some have found refinishing them makes them look much better. If someone could market a better looking stock i that price range to CMP they would do pretty well.
