Rob,

Nice find today. I know you have been looking to fill the "gap" in your IHC collection for a while. :>)

Thanks for the help you provided when I purchased my gap-letter.

Jeff

Yes, I owe her one (she was actually pretty cool and a knowledgeable collector that I really enjoyed interacting with).
I was in shock when it was brought up and was basically just trying to hold myself together until I could get inside to get it.
I did try to verify that her and her husband were not interested in it before I got to excited, but they were looking for 1917 Bolt Guns.
Path was clear and object was in sight.
Had to go for it

On to the next one

Rob

I actually spent most of the morning with a new customer, George IIRC, that was looking for a good shooter that had some collectability to it.
Sound familiar?
We found an IHC Service Grade that was 1/1 with correct LMR Barrel and that had a LOT of IHC parts.
It needed Wood, Gas Screw and Trigger Group to be correct. We took it apart to the smallest part and everything else looked good. The Gas Cylinder was IHC and we even took the screw out of the front sight to verify it was IHC.
The wood was a set of dark Birch that was all matching, but NOT IHC. A picture so you can see how nice it looked overall:

It did not look like the common Philippine Return from what I have seen.
Hell, I got to where I was liking it myself.

After we went through every rifle in the store I believe he purchased it (not sure cause I was leaving while he was filling paperwork out).
He made a good choice in my opinion since there was nothing in the store that matched it, except maybe some of the Service Grade M1Cs they had.

Awesome Rob, you definitely deserve it!

Thumbs up the staff is great, by the way

Also, I had a hoot hanging out at the counter with Austin and Matt.
They both represent the CMP well.

Well, everyone that enjoys the South Store reports should give PH68 some positive feedback. Feedback is not just for buy and sell, but what really what you think about a member.

I love reading the reports.
