You didn't meet a French Model on the internet, did you ?
That's what the internet said and no one lies on the internet, so I bought it. ha-ha..

I fixed the serial in my original post. I didn't have the rifle in front of me when I first made the post.

I say it's not happenin..Yes I know some ultra-important person has seen these warehouses full out west..hmm

last update i read said they were 16,000 or something orders behind on mail order. They don't have the time to stockpile put together rifles for the Matches. especially when people buy multiple rifles at the same time.

But even if they run out...i'm okay, I got mine

I think most people on the forums have at least 1 Garand from the CMP. some even have dozens. Be glad you got the chance to have one. Think about all the guys 5-10 years down the line that are going to miss the boat on these magnificent pieces of history. I know that feeling all too well, I discovered the CMP back when I was probably 14 or 15. I wanted One of those M1 Carbines so bad I could taste the cosmoline. Especially at the handsome price of $495 bucks for a good shooter. Unfortunately, they did not last until 2012 when I turned 18. Luckily us guys who weren't of age or weren't familiar with the CMP back then have a shot at them again next year provided people aren't placing orders for multiple carbines. Remember, the purpose of the CMP is to encourage marksmanship among the youth of America. Not a contest to see who can fit the most rifles in a safe.

Have a good day,
Flame away
