Default WRA SG & FG from TMP Store

Received the two WRAs, SG & FG, I selected on a 4/27 visit to the TMP Pro Shop. First, highly recommend a visit to TMP, fantastic place with excellent friendly staff. I had the pro shop all to myself and after scouring the racks for an hour I decided on these two gems (to me), but there were many to choose from and it came down to the SG barrel measurements and overall finish and the USGI wood on the FG:

WRA SG
SN: 248900
Barrel: SA 4-47, +1/+1
Bolt: D28287-12SA S-11<>
OpRod: D35382 SA
Trigger Housing: D28290-12-SA
Hammer: C46008-1 W.R.A.
Stock: CMP

WRA FG
SN: 152119
Barrel: SA 3-55, +2/+4, re-crowned (by Turks?)
Bolt: 6528287-SA Z1
OpRod: D35382W.R.A.
Trigger Housing: 6528290-SA
Hammer: SA D5546008
Stock: USGI walnut, stamped RRA-D, tape residue, minimal dings/scratches. Handguards have chipping varnish/shellac. Will clean up well.

Really happy with these two.

CMP TALLADEGA MARKSMANSHIP PARK, also referred to as the "west store" about twenty minutes from the CMP South store. Has its own pro shop with ammo, targets, etc, and ~ 75 M1 Garands, if the racks are full. PH68 (Tom) provides a store report weekly http://forums.thecmp.org/forumdisplay.php?f=74

Turkish Re-crowning job on the Field Grade for sure. Super barrel readings on the Service Grade. That would have been impossible for me to pass up.

Absolutely too good to pass up! I was just looking for a good WRA, but that SG had to come home. My strategy in the TMP was scour the racks, then move my favs to the front and once I had four solid potential buys strip them on the counter. I think these two were the pick of the 70+ litter (excepting the SA Correct grade for $3K!). The USGI wood & SN sold the FG WRA, but I probably passed up some good stuff wearing Hackberry.
