A pair of M1C.s.

I drove over from Atlanta this morning. Pretty much what ZvenoMan said.

2 M1C
An RM1D (FIELD I think)
A few other types.

No bolt guns
Lots of .30-06, .308 and 22 Lr (Armscor) ammo.

I picked up a RM1SPECIALFIELD WRA and am RM1IHCFIELD. The IHC could use a different stock, this one is okay but has some carvings on it like they tried to improve the grip. But now at least I have one of each of the major manufacturers - SA, WRA, HRA, and IHC.

The "chester" in the name is a little difficult to see, but under a flashlight is is okay. The rest is fine.

Apparently I'll be in ATL next week and am considering a run to Talladega. From the recent reports, most of the Field/Service Grade SA/HRA have been Specials (new barrels etc)? I'm into the 60s rebuilds right now, so the regular Service Grades have been my focus (I did see that earlier poster with the IHC LEAD rebuild).

Thoughts on chances on a Friday run?

If you want a Special grade rebuild, there might still be some? I have no info on when/if they restock that store. The last post above from MParrott82 didn't indicate any regular Service grades being available.

As of 9/25 at noon, two M1Cs and one Winchester special field. Three rifles total, that was it.

A few double boxes of Creedmoor .308 175 gr match ammo and they had quite a bit of .243 Hornady 100gr InterLock hunting ammo. Lots of M7 bayos new in box with scabbards. That was really it. Maybe they'll get a restock this week.
