Hello! I’ve been lurking for quite awhile and decided I’d go ahead and create an account—I ordered a CMP special last Friday, got the email Tuesday, and received my rifle Thursday..awesome service!

I do have an etiquette question. When I ordered, I was really hoping for a Springfield Armory receiver (also hoped for a WW2 era in honor of my grandpa), but I received a postwar HRA. Don’t get me wrong—it’s a thing of beauty, but would it be uncool to post a thread to see if anyone might be interested in a trade? I’m sure there’s someone out there who hoped for an HRA and got a SA. I’d appreciate input on this.

Welcome from Kansas, the other Ar Kansas.

There are lots of people wanting a HRA. Post your wanted to trade in the Garand Parts Wanted thread.

A lot depends on specifics of your rifle, and the rifle of the trader. Not hard to do, but might involve FFL's on the transfer. Plus or minus on some money too.

Good luck.

PS: I don't need a HRA

Welcome from Florida.
Another option, sell it and order/buy another. They sell pretty quickly here, but I know it's hard to let one go once you have it. Just a suggestion. Good luck either way. And again Welcome!
P.S. The CMP Specials are really NICE rifles!
