Garands are like Baskin Robbins 31 flavors ice cream. I like them all.

Hypothetical question. Wont CMP Proofed stocks 20 years from now or more be considered collectible because that's how they sold the rifle? OR is that crazy. Kind of like Arsenal Rebuilds are correct unto themselves. ?
You can always keep it aside if you decide to sell it, but I dont see CMP stocks ever being super collectible, since they are sold individually and also on rifles

Mine looks like it had never been shot.

I wouldn't have a reason not to shoot a service grade special, and I wouldn't consider them a collectors item. They're a grade below a CMP papered correct, and a notch above a regular service grade. They were kinda like a NOS barreled receiver and parts assembly wrapped in a commercial/repro- stock set. As said, the time frame when the CMP released these, they sold a seemingly endless number of pristine Greek return service grades with excellent condition metal and correct postwar HRA & SA stock sets, and just a part or 2 not being correct, and for the princely service grade sum of $595.
I shoot all my rifles, whether service grade, correct grade, even my DCM Tooele lottery M1D, that was unissued from it's 1969 M1D conversion, with all NIW accessories.
Sure it's fun owning them, and maintaining them, but it's more fun shooting them, as was intended!

Craftsman- Your point is well taken. You sound like me. I love to shoot it all.

Unless it is a collector grade with a hard to find genre, I wouldn't hesitate to fire it.

Right now you can purchase as many CMP marked stock sets as you can afford at $157.45 per unit. Maybe they will be worth a premium someday, but I seriously doubt it. Collectors, and they are the ones who pay healthy premiums, are only interested in things which are USGI. In any lifetime, a CMP marked stock will never be worth as much as a 1/2" DAS marked stocks, much less a 3/8" from an early HRA. Just because something was "sold that way", does not make it especially desirable, at least when compared to what would be correct.
