Default Rifles for Mail In Orders

Just curious are mail in orders filled from guns in the store rack or are they pulled from rifles going thru the insp/rebuild shop?

I think it depends, but I believe for the most part if listed available on the rifle sales page they will come from the shop. I recently noticed that after the Field Grade .308 Specials were posted as sold out some people were receiving rifles from the North Store since they had an abundance of them.
I assume if needed they will get rifles from either source if needed to fulfill orders.

Thanks,

I was under the impression that store racks were for "inperson" sales and the rest came from the referb line.

I was at the North Store on the 11th of October and all the .308 Specials were being taged as “sold”. We were told they were being mailed back to the South Store since they didn’t have any and we just figured they would be mailed out.

What little pitting was minuscule on the left front receiver corner. Head space was right on. IHC trigger housing was rebuilt with an SA hammer and a HRA safety. Cylinder lock screw was HRA. Bolt and Op rod are both SA. The internal op rod and spring both had minor surface rust from storage but cleaned right up. All in all, a very good buy. After oiling up the wood, I'll be off to the range. (PS) The receiver is a SA, Ser.# 14709xx..

Overall very nice, look forward to shooting it. Receiver is SA #4311685. What "oil" are you going to use on the stock?

Out of the many rifles I have ordered from the CMP, I have had 2 rifles ship from the North Store. I imagine it has to do with what the CMP has available and what orders are being received. IMHO

I’ve been standing in the SS when a person comes out and selected a rifle for mail order. I’ve seen this more than once.
