DCM rifle sale records available?
I purchased a DCM Garand from a friend a couple of years ago. His father qualified for it around 1980 give or take a few years. Does CMP have access to sales records of DCM rifles? I would very much like to purchase a replacement certificate for this rifle.

You can’t buy a replacement certificate but for $25 the CMP will research the serial number and send you a letter that states when the CMP or DCM sold it. Look at the CMP website for how to contact the CMP for this service.

CMP records are only complete from 1996 to now, previous DCM records are very incomplete. Still worth a try

I recently applied for this service. I received a nice letter from the CMP for my DCM sales M1 Garand saying that the records showed it had been sold on March 3,1994. They also sent me a photocopy of the computer record with the original owners name blacked out. Well worth the $25 in my opinion!

Thanks to all who replied, I will move ahead and submit $25.00 to the CMP.

The rifle in question has sentimental value to me as it was the first Garand I handled and shot.

It was earned by the father of a great high school friend, who is a Korean war USMC tank commander veteran. He used my Mini 14 in the required match. Upon the return to me of the Mini 14 he opined it was a a piece of s#!& (crap). He qualified for the M1 rifle with it though!

This rifle was purchased from him in a time of (his) financial need, and I was honored to help this veteran. His family did a lot for me in my teens.

It will be listed for sale in the not too distant future, although in different furniture. It was delivered to me in a very attractive stock, which has been heavily sanded and varnished. I am unsure if this was the original stock the rifle shipped with.

Thank you again for the input.
