Default Thanks CMP!

I just received my brand new, SG SA M1 from y'all and I LOVE IT. Everyone was great to deal with, questions were answered happily and the whole thing took a week from receipt of my order. Everyone at CMP was awesome to deal with. Thanks for doing what you do!

Cheers,
RG

My paper work is going out tomorrow for a service grade and a field grade. I’m pretty excited. Congrats on the new gun.

I'm really psyched, I wanted a good, but not "new" rifle and that's exactly what I got. I wish I could find out where it's been? All I know is that it was born at the Springfield Armory in November 43 and re-built at Rock Island, I'm thinking sometime in late 53 or early 54. Tarawa? Bastogne? Normandy, Okinawa, Chosin? Inchon? North Africa? Camp LeJeune?

Hi Fellows,

I received a field grade that had some dried mud in both butt storage compartments! The dried mud was totally packed under the butt plate too!

I'm sure that rifle could tell some story's! It is STILL a good Shooter!

Enjoy your rifles!

You left the mud in, I hope. Wouldn't want to be modifying anything.

Maybe you could have the mud analyzed to find out if it's Pacific Island mud, French mud, or just what.

Hi rapid86,

No, I cleaned it out to the best of my ability! I REALLY did think about having the mud checked!

The mud was throwing off the perfect balance of the M-1 Garand in question!
My scores increased about 10% standing & kneeling! --LOL--

I'm a retired guy & don't have much extra cash for lab checks. I just asked a few military guys at Ft.Gordon in Augusta GA.
They all felt it was German mud, do to its color, grain structure & it's ability to really pack it's self into the thin space between the butt stock & the metal butt cap!

Be well & ENJOY each day,
broom
