Question "Special Correct Grade"

Not sure what they are trying to do here, but it seems to me that this would be a Service Grade Special, for those who remember when they were an option.

I thought the SGS were collector grade metal with cmp wood, so this is a grade below.

True about a SGS grading, but then if this is a grade below, wouldn't that be a Service Grade? I'm more confused how the word "Correct" could be anywhere near this rifle with new CMP wood.

I had to look at it a couple times. It is correct as to everything but the wood. So it really isn't a " Correct" rifle. If it is correct, then why wasn't http://cmpauction.thecmp.org/detail.asp?id=3617 ? Service Grades are normally cleaned while Corrects and Collectors are not. And as it has new wood, how did it get Cosmoline on the ferrel?

They can and have come up with new grades in the past if something doesn't meet exact criteria

Perhaps they think "Correct" will increase the sale price.

I think it's been so long since they have seen a Service Grade Special they forgot the description....

I have wondered about the grease too. Maybe they throw some on the "higher end" models to give it a more "vintage" look? lol...Who knows
