Default CMP Specials (30-06 or .308)

Thought it would be a cool idea if there was a thread for those of us who ordered CMP Specials, 30-06 or 308 to post about dates, pics, and mechanical issues of these rifles.

Please post away.

Estore: 6/26
Order number: 466441
I havnt seen anything since it hit estore. Anyone else?

Here's my info:

CMP Special, .30-06 (RM1SPECIAL)

Order Mailed: 4/19/2013
Order Received: 4/23/2013
DBU: 5/1/2013
E-Store: 7/15/2013
CC: N/A, prepaid, cashier's check
Shipped: Maybe this week, probably week after next
Rifle Received: Day after it ships

Order number: 471190, open

I think it's a good idea to keep posting order information in the timeline thread also. There's a very helpful person that creates graphs of wait time from info in that thread.

Default RM1 Special in .308

Order sent for one 3/18/13 registered USPS
Received: 3/20/13
DBU: About a week later.
E-Store: 6/12/13
No credit card hit yet.
Status is still "open" after 128 days.
It will come when it will come and not until.
I have no complaints about the CMP as I am sure their daily
stress level is about as high as an SR-71 Blackbird.

Order # was..463343

Smile CMP Special Grade 308 Order Status

I emailed Customer Service last week asking for a status report on my 308 Special order. They emailed back and told me the 308 is on backorder (knew that) and mine would probably not ship before the END OF AUGUST or later! Not very encouraging.

Order mailed: 7 March 2013
Received CMP: 11 March 2013
DBU: 18 March 2013
eStore: 6 June 2013
CC Hit: TBD
Shipped: TBD
Delivered: TBD

FYI - email 6/18/13 from Orest said I'm number 162 on the list to receive a 308 Special. He estimated another month before it is shipped - already passed that!

Post panic orders:

CMP Special 30/06 took 74 days from DBU receipt. 'O' says these are made to order and not currently being stocked. ME/TE 0-0

HRA Special 30/06 took exactly 60 days from receipt of the DBU e-mail. ME 1 TE 1. All parts were new.

No mechanical issues other than that both new stocks needed proper fitting to the rifle.

They are worth the wait! You will be very pleased at how accurate the 308 is too. I bought my 30-06 in March of last year right before the 308's were released. To make a long story short I worked a deal and now it has the 308 Criterion barrel in place of the 30-06 and a DGR stock. It shoots real well too.
That target was reloads with 42gr Varget powder under a 168gr Nosler Custom Comp bullet in LC brass.
The target is an SR 21
