Thanks! That's good to know.

When these last few disappear we will feel it....

Get one before they are gone!

I went to the North store today to look around. I was not impressed with the ceremonial 1917s. There are only a couple left and the best looking one had deep pitting in the barrel. The field grades are starting to look picked over but to be fair I did not inspect them all.

I will say the service grade m1s were looking great! I wish I hadn't bought a field grade last year and waited to buy a service grade this year. Oh well, a field grade in hand is worth two service grades in the store.

I am new to m1s but my observation is that many of the HRAs had GI wood. There were at least a full rack of HRA. There were very few SA left in service grade. The park looked nice on the couple of HRA I picked up. The actions were tight in the stock. Sorry but I did not notice GI vs Greek park.

We arrived at 745 AM Sat. 2nd in line. By the time doors opened maybe 10-12 Guys waiting. New service grades were nice. About on par with what they had during national matches. Got three that I had shipped home so I will see them Tuesday. Most gauged at 1ME and 2TE. All I bought had USGI wood. Looked through everything else. Didn't see anything much in Krags or 17's that impressed me. Didn't spend a ton of time looking through FG cuz I already blew my wad on the 3 SG although I finally got my own MW Gauge. Couple last years T shirts, 800 rnds of HXP and 5- .50 CAL empty ammo cans...talked with Bob from PA before going in. It was nice meeting you Bob. As usual..A great trip to the NS

To answer this...Many, 2/3 probably, in USGI wood (some a little rough) most in USGI park finish...Not too many Greeks

There was some at the end of the day saturday. I really don't think they can tell you what's coming out the following day if you are trying to make plans in advance...Either way, your odds are better to go and hand pick in person... 2000 rifles won't last a long time.
