Recently I watched a color documentary on the pacific war , there was a clip of a few Marines taking a break during the pacific campaign that had their M1's lined up in a row against some rocks and trees. The color of the M1stocks was a dark deep red , well used, bruised and battered, but had the look of a well functioning rifle. I've been experimenting with some new CMP wood to achieve the same kind of look without the battle scars. Here's what I have so far. Looking for input before I post in the how to section. Njoy, Rich

A blonde HRA , A4 rebuild that came with a birch stock that needed work so I put a project birch stock on in the mean time that is solid as a rock but thick as a telephone pole but is basically brand new. I've since put the original stock back on that it came with while I work on the thick one. The oversize stock looked really good but needs additional sanding work. I think it was an over size blank that was thrown away. Rich

I am up to 4 this round.

#1 CMP IHC Field Grade- The stock was beat up and terrible. I sent it through the Dishwasher and am doing RLO on it. I filled some dents and sanded some off but some still come through the finish as dark spots. The Cartouche also comes through as a dark spot but cannot be seen on the stripped stock. Short of the barrel and the stock she is all IHC.

#2 IHC I bought from a helper. It has a nice receiver and VAR barrel. Corrected the rest with IHC parts collected around so again short of the stock, barrel, and bolt she is IHC mostly.

#3 SA WWII Receiver with 51 barrel. This rife was a Field grade and a complete dog. I was able to run the stock through the dishwasher several times to get most of the dents out and filled the gouges with sanding dust from a walnut board I have and epoxy. You could tell in the original photos I posted here there was a gem under the muck and dents it just needed to be brought out. I am still working the RLO treatment on this stock also.

#4 Completely correct H&R I picked up local that is from the CMP around 2012. It has some dents and dingers on the stock but has strong cartouches. I think these days this gun would probably end up on the Auction. The tag or cert does not say what Grade it originally was.









I have 3 more in the works for this month. One from ARFCOM which is a WRA and 2 more Service Grades. I attached notes hoping to get an HRA and a post war SA.

My goal is to hand pick the other 4 CMP purchases this year at the CMP store.

Here's my latest addition. I stickied for a good shooter and received this 1.56M mixmaster with 6-52 HRA barrel (ME 1/TE 1+).

I detail stripped it and applied about 7 coats of BLO over the factory stain. Lock up is tight, but need to fine tune the fit because the op rod has some interference with the rear HG. It should be a great shooter.

Recieved my second Service Grade. It is a 5.94 million receiver and its all correct short of the CMP stock. The rifle pretty much looks new all the way down to under the barrel where the Op rod would rub.
