CMP Service Grade out of stock for mail order
 
Another member pointed out that the CMP website now shows as of May 6, there will be no more mail orders starting today. Obviously they are going to try and fulfill orders sent already sent in:

I'm about a month out on a four gun order. Fingers crossed.

This will no doubt facilitate:

1. A forcing function to move the large stock of pitted Philippine return Field grade M1 rifles.

2. The relief of the existing extended Service Grade M1 rifle back-log, and possibly get some front-end loading for the next sales round.

3. The disguise of an inflationary price increase on the SG M1 rifles upon their return to stock.

Crazy!!
 
I hope my mailed in request gets filled. Mailed on Feb 14, 2021 and no email as of yet for the IHC Service Grade (sold out April 9) and my request for M1 Service Grade (sold out May 6) I hope I can squeeze in for ANY RIFLE at this point in time. I emailed asking for a update last week, and not even a return email.

Whether you are getting one or not, you are going to get an email either way it seems, according to their website.

I hope some forethought and planning went into the decision to refuse future SG mail orders, rather than it being a panic mode "ohmygosh we'll never be able to fill the orders we have in house." Time will tell.

It could be a little of both.

Organized Panic

nothing to see... happened before. It'll happen again.

Maybe just hitting the pause button to allow the folks in the back to catch up a bit. And maybe help sell some field grades. I'm probably 2-3 weeks out on my order, (guessing). Ordered a service grade with no stickies.

Heck, I'll take a field, I've got a nice WW2 '44 service grade already.

Be patient.

Greetings from your neighbor in Davenport.

While there are no assurances, in prior events, if you had an order on the desk, you got a rifle. I've had a couple of close calls with this sort of thing, but always managed to get an M1.
