Well, a good chunk of them are the drill garands:
- plugged barrel
- welded gas cylinder
- welded firing pin hole
- welded op rod channel
- beat up stocks

There are a lot of M1C's in the rack that are really big bucks ($2235 to $3035). There are Rack and Field Grade M1D's that have been in the rack for months and months with high ME readings. There are lots of drill rifles too. Keep that in mind when looking at the photos.

Shelves were full with the same stock that's been reported earlier. If you are looking for something nice, go now!
Here's a few pics. Enjoy!

Now when I was here the quality of the collector grades was much lower than a month ago. They were rough

It would sure be great if CMP would bring back the "Agent" Program or something similar so those in the Western States could take advantage of the North and South Stores without a 3 day drive or by air for between $600 and $1,000 plus meals and lodging.

It may be time to petition the National CMP Directors as the present management does not seem to care.

You are correct. In addition, before 2012, they were extremely rare but then the CMP had a limited release in 2012 and now another floodgate is opened.

Scott Duff was selling nice examples of these in the early 2000's for well over 2K

$1,200 is a smoking deal if you can hand pick a previous auction candidate.

From the CMP's perspective, I suspect there's a lot of down side and very little if any up side to restoring the agent program.
