Default CMP Special from 2012

What did the build of a Special consist of from one sold in 2012?
What was the cost and how do they compare to ones available today? I don't recall if they were just called Special or did they have the field special or service special designation back then as well. Only ask as I've never owned a special and will I be happy with it for a shooter?
Go with the older one or newer one?

When I purchased mine in 2012 they were called a "CMP Special Grade"...RM1 Special.
The price then was $995....no tax then on out of state store purchase.
At that time I believe this was the only "Special" that was offered. Field Grade Specials are a fairly recent item.
I don't see any difference in the rifle from then till the current offering.

That was the price when I was at South Store on 15 November for the SA "CMP Special"; new barrel, new wood etc.

Winchester and IHC were $1250.
