If you have a few of those in your safe, you may hesitate shelling out $2200 after looking them over. I'll have to admit though that I have not examined them myself.
I have a Correct Grade from that era that I picked out at the North Store as well as two "easily correctable" rifles from the same period. None of those three were as nice as some of the Collector Grade rifles I looked over last Saturday. The one I examined most closely was an HRA 5.5M that looked unused. I found no appreciable wear and the wood was as close to perfect as I had seen on a CMP rifle in the racks: two tiny blems that might have been there since the rifle came off the HRA line.

Some of the others were not as nice. But they were all all worth a look. Gems are there. $2000 is a lot of money but I think some of the Collector Grades were pretty close to mint and worth it. Or maybe I just got the exception to the rule.

Default Update: Tiger stripe stock and M1D SA SG's

Made a quick stop by store this morning and saw a HRA drill rifle with a nice tiger stripe stock, only stock was tiger stripe, other wood was mixed.

There were some very nice M1D SA SG's in the store this morning that had beautiful metal finish and nice wood, if your interested, these are worth a look.

Good luck..

Hey Top, any SC Drills look like they may be "easily" salvaged?

Only one SC and it was rough... The others were Rem and look salvageable with light weld, stock and finish were nice on most of the 8 Rem's.

Thanks for your reports. Went to the store a few months ago in hope of purchasing HXP ammo. Was told at first it was available and filled the form for 4 200 rounds in cans...then told later it wasn't. Only had the Norwegian corrosive. Decided to wait due to your reports on what was available and then you posted that HXP was in store...then went and picked up 4 cans. The cans were in sad condition, painted in different shades of green with yellow block numbers on the side. There wasn't any corrosion on any, unlike previous purchases. Just had 1 round with an indent on the neck set it aside and found 1 stamped LC.

Thanks.

Haven't seen any in the last 18 months and haven't heard anything about any in the future.

Did see a very nice SA GAW stock w/good ordnance wheel stamp on a drill rifle today. Really nice stamp!!!!
