Default Just Ordered 2 Field Grades

Yup, I'm hooked.

My very first Garand arrived mid March; SA 4391641 with a dark red walnut stock and standard DOD eagle cartouche, IHC fire control group, SA 6 54 barrel gauged 3 throat/2 bore; has nearly zero historical importance but it is a great shooter.

My second Garand arrived 14 days ago is a SA 4274345 Special Rack with brand new Criterion barrel and beautiful new walnut sock. Bolt and fire control group both SA. Tried a few hand-loads in this this past weekend and very impressed with the rifle and might want try a match in the future.

My order for 2 Field Grades went in the mail today and looking forward to seeing what I get.

I remember the M1 Carbines going out of stock some 10-12 years ago and have not seen any offered (outside of auction) since. I'm thinking the Garand will go the same way, and sooner than many think.

If it has any IBM part on it, then there is plenty historical importance....
Congrats on getting the addiction! You do know we need pics....

Sorry about the "IBM", had a lot on my mind and typed that instead of International Harvester Corporation--"IHC"

I edited the original post to correct.
