Default Win SG

Got my Win Service Grade. Have not seen a lot of these posted so here is mine.

1. 1943 receiver. Very light "SA" electropencil on the receiver leg. Year unreadable.

2. 2/55 SA barrel ME/TE 1+/2. Muzzle is badly nicked on one of the lands. Barrel has been recrowned.
-wide base gas cylinder, square top at the back. Stacking swivel screw has two stakes indicating rebuild.
-HRA O gas plug
-chromed gas cylinder lock screw? Or WW2 never refinished?

3. CMP Stock. Looks like these stocks were inletted with a chisel.

4. Internals
-NHC elevation DRC windage
-SA modified oprod.
-12 SA bolt "37" on the bottom
- 11 marked follower (ww2 right?)
-notched bullet bullet guide

5. Trigger Group
-IHC housing E heat lot code
-SA hammer
-IHC/HRA hammer pin
-Hammer plunger with wings
-unmarked safety

The rifle is not in great shooting shape due to very poor fitting between the housing and stock. I have 63 year old stocks with more lockup than this one. Lugs are in good shape on the trigger guard.

Thanks for posting pictures. Is that a black refinish on the receiver, or worn original finish?

Hello Bill,
Thanks for the above info; consider yourself lucky lol - here are two pics of the fitting on my just-rec'd CMP wood (IHC SG).
No remaining lockup to speak of; IMO the stock is unfortunately scrap at this point, and will most likely be going back to the CMP.

Best of luck with your WRA-SA rebuild.

My uneducated opinion is a refinish. Its fairly dark and appears to be over a lot of blemishes/mars/dings in the surface.

I'm a realist - I don't expect original anything on a 1943 produced receiver.

That is awful. CMP is getting a raw deal from who ever is supplying these stocks.

Those stocks look awful. I got an IHC Service Grade last month. It had a Boyd's stock that was very high quality. It had excellent fit and lock up. I'm in the process of swapping it out for GI wood but I'll be using it for another project. At the AMC class earlier this month we also used Boyd's stocks right out of the box and the fit was excellent. I wonder if there is another vendor being used?

The fitting on your stock is completely unacceptable. Based upon other posts, you aren't the only one having issues with new stocks with virtually no lockup. Apparently somebody at CMP is afraid to use a rubber mallet to close the guard so they just keep removing wood until it closes with ease. I would be furious if I received a stock that had been mutilated like that one....flame on.

Same goes for yours too, OP. Call CMP and send the stock back.

Place a strong magnet under the receiver leg and sprinkle some powdered iron over the rebuild etching. Tap it until the symbols appear. Kinda like magnaflux.
