Default CMP armorers

Did they ever finish incomplete Garands and sell them as rack, service, correct grade or were the barreled receivers all sold as is by mail order, at the stores, or from the auction page?

Yes, they routinely build up rifles from parts and they get graded into the same categories as the rifles that come in complete.

That's what I thought. Thanks for the confirmation!

I do not believe CMP routinely builds Field and Service grade rifles,it would be more the exception than the rule. Yes they do build Special and Expert grades

I was at Anniston back in 2010 with my Dad. We went and helped on the volunteer program at the time. Some of the crates of M1's that were shipped in at the time were partial rifles. So these were all built at that time. That was when CMP was putting those orange stocks on the rifles. The ones that everyone called the Pumpkin Rifles.At that time I know they were rebuiding rifles out of partial rifles.

There are a couple of "inside the CMP" type videos on YouTube. In at least a couple of them, CMP employees specifically mention building rifles.
