Default North Store Report 2/11

This was my first trip to either store, so bear with me if I miss some details. Hopefully someone else can chime in with additional details or correct any mistakes, as I was a bit overwhelmed.

No bolt actions
No 30-06 ammo
No enblocs except the 1 you receive with a rifle

I arrived at 8:40 but had an appointment for later in the day so they let me right in. I think that was still the first batch of ~10 people looking at rifles.

2 racks of SA/HRA service grades. I was looking for a WW2 serial with a GI stock, and couldn't find one. Found two WW2 Springfields with matching barrels, both in CMP stocks. Myself and another guy took those. A lot of nice HRA's. The guy shopping next to me seemed to know a lot more and said that he thought the racks had very nice rifles on them today. By the time I was looking they were probably 2/3rds CMP stocks.

1 rack of IHC service grades. I was searching for an IHC with an LMR barrel, and was able to find 3. I chose one with a GI stock with a circle P, box P, and RRAD on it.


Things im not 100% on as I wasn't looking at them for myself:
Maybe 10 field grade SA/HRA.
I think ~12 IHC field grades
3 sniper models
There were some 6M SA's but I didn't pay attention


Mr. Poole behind the counter stated "If you've bought 2 rifles from CMP this year you are done." Interpret that how you want.

I want to thank the guy next to me who helped me get my ******** together and find two very nice rifles, the CMP folks who were great, and the people on this forum who helped me get prepped for my visit.

Service grade racks (2 SA/HRA, 1 IHC) had both sides full. The other grades were approximately the quantities I listed above.

I should have just taken a photo.

1:30 appointment....let in 12;45 & out to door at 1:45 headed home. very little wait time. Store almost empty

HRA/SA Service ..... about 45 in 2 racks, many with new wood, no WRA barrels. Several HRA's had HRA barrels and some had LMR barrels. Saw 4 or 5 NM op rods in the group.

No WRA's in store

SA Field grade .... about 6 and not too bad

IHC's ....... about 22, many with LMR barrels


A few M1 D's

Drill rifles..... 2 in really poor condition

Air rifles..... maybe about 10

380 ammo & 45 ammo available, no 30-06

And a box of Garand barrels on the counter

Garand's sold today had the black color hard cases.

Per Bob...... max 2 Garand's directly from the North Store for the year (for now, anyway), if you want any more, you will need to get from Anniston, either in person or mail..........Guess I won't see the N.S. crew there until next year.

If we had driven from PA like we saw, would have grabbed something, but it's a very short drive for us so wait for next truck. Bob said this truck was normal and not at all as good as previous one.
Meaning the truck that delivered the rifles that are at the store now, or the next truck to arrive?

I'm still sad that one had a bunch of nice 1903A1s after I'd already bought a 1903 for the year.

Now I'm a bit bummed that my M1C counts for the 2 limit from the north store... At least the SA-52 had been on my list for things I'd hoped to find.

I foresee a South Store road trip in the future, lol
