I was able to look at a couple at Perry this year and it wasnít a big deal in my opinion. They would be perfect for a shooter.

As it is a refinished receiver with a new barrel and stock, assembled from parts plucked from bins in the CMP armory does it matter where the receivers came from?

Seriously, does that make them a better deal or worse?

Yes, if chance of getting a heavily pitted receiver is higher with the Philippines returns.

I'm willing to bet they sure are, and expect the "Specials" to be the future of sales. Interesting they have time to build enough Specials to offer for mail order, yet Field Grade orders are pushing a 5 month backlog. I'm thinking that now that they can offer Specials for mail order, the Field Grades will be posted soon as sold out. This happened with Service Grade orders when they were posted as sold out and Field Grades almost immediately became available.

Lightbulb This could be why Special Rack Grades are offered.

I suspect they're offering the Special Rack Grade Garands because of what the armorers have to work with at the moment.

As I understand it, the armorers open a crate of Garands and work on what's in there. If what's in there is not suitable for Field Grade but is suitable for some other grades, then some other grades will be what are made.

The only way to turn out only Field Grades would be to open a crate, pull out all the rifles, sort out the ones suitable for Field Grade, repack the leftover rifles back in the crate, pull the next crate, and repeat the cycle. That's very labor intensive and will generate fewer total rifles over that period of time compared to working on whatever is there regardless of condition.

I think the armorers have probably opened a crate with a lot of rifles suitable only for Special Rack Grade. They're probably getting only a few rifles that are better than that. That's likely why some Service Grades and other grades show up in small quantities in the TMP store.

Just my best guess; I could be wrong as I have no special knowledge.

Rick

Confirming the $100 price bump. Still a FANTASTIC deal on a great rifle IMHO.
