Default 2 service grades arrived.

Got a nice SA m1 from spring 45 with what looks to my untrained eye as original barrel and finish along with mo0stly correct parts. Has an incorrect trigger group and a nice GAW stock (I think thats what it was) instead of NFR but I'm super happy with it.

2nd rifle is a spring of 43 Mixmaster with late 64 HRA barrel and new wood. When I looked her over the windage was all the way to the left. I tried to center it up. No go. The short of it is it had a NM/2A sight base and a standard M1 knob. the threads are a mis match. e-mailed CMP. They offered to have me return it for repair. I had already pulled a spare sight base and had her working. Now to find a matching NM windage knob. (I think the base is M14 base). Must have been in a hurry putting her together. They would have to of noticed that.

The nice 1st rifle more than made up for the boo boo.

From the description, I think I'd be very happy with Rifle No. 1 as well !
Love to see some photos.

Probably on duty at the station rolling up hoses. We will have to wait for his 48 hrs off. Now a 5-0 would never neglect to show his rifle pics right away.

I pretty much got the same thing today but with a RA-P stamped stock. The trigger group appears to be era correct. Not sure if lockbar sight was correct for March 45 (which mine has).... I stickied for a H&R but this will do
