Default Non GI Rifles on auction

I saw the Arisaka last week and now a Winchester 9422. Any idea on how these things end up at CMP auction? I'm guessing they were Army possessions at some point?

Maybe willed/donated to the CMP BY a supporter?

That's most likely. I know at least one bequeathed item from an old friend of mine seems to have shown up on a CMP auction.

Of course, that may not be true in all cases.

Could be from a closed post, museum, personal donation, etc.

I have a feeling that it was donated or willed. The M1C with matching base was sold years ago in a previous auction

When they did the inside the CMP episode on Shooting USA. They showed a Garand captured during the Vietnam War and another from Afghanistan. So the Army can turn over weapons from a variety of sources!!

The non USGI sporting arms on auction are often sourced by US military hunting clubs that have closed or just replaced equipment. The rifles that were provided to hunters on military posts were MWR owned equipment and therefore US Govt. Property. It is then normal for them to be disposed off through the arsenal system like Anniston which then passes it off to CMP. Its sad but there are fewer and fewer of these fine military shooting and hunting clubs that used to be a great perk of military service. My local experience was the Fall deer season every year at Camp Bullis, Texas (an extension of Fort Sam Houston north of San Antonio). There were some excellent deer hunts up there.

If you look at some of them you will see a NSN tag on them. In the example of the Mossberg that is currently up, it has a yellow one on the stock.

Please excuse my ignorance, what does NSN stand for?
