Sent mine back. Didn't even waste time with pics. Bought one from Treeline minus the stock, bolt, and barrel for $75 more. I have a few stocks already. Hopefully, the newer inventory will be better. I will go next Wednesday and check things out.

Just to update, CMP offered to replace my op-rod, trigger group, and stock. I told them I only needed the op-rod, and trigger housing. Today I received an op-rod, trigger housing and rear sight. Very satisfied.

I would take pics, but they are just standard good condition parts. Both were TRW, elevation is marked N(sideways T)C. Windage is marked DRC. Rest of sight is unmarked.

I'm on pretty much the same schedule as Amberjack for a grade A kit. Fedex tried to deliver today but I wasn't around. Picking up tomorrow and will try to post pics of what I receive. I'd appreciate everyone critique as I'm a relative newb to these rifles and might not realize what I have/don't have.

So I have my fingers crossed but I should know better as the CMP has always been luck of the draw. I've ordered several Garands over the years and have recieved many different variations of service and collector grade.

Oh by the way, hello everyone. Just realized this is my first post on this forum. I've been lurking for years.

got my "A" kit on Thursday. birch stock with a thin wrist and USGI butt plate, don't see any cartouches. op-rod with a tab that measures .084 and rounded off real bad and needs rebuilding. trigger housing is HR-N with a spline that is not pretty at all. Has TRW hammer though that is nice. piston looks wore but measures real good. gas cylinder looks o.k.. flash hider is fairly beat up, but i think i can salvage it. threads look almost gone on the gas lock screw. good front sight and handguard. crown nut looks almost new. the op-rod guide is the early style solid with the full length grooves. safety is marked with a K over an 8. rear sight is average. i ended up just buying several NOS parts and will more than likely sell off most of this kit at a loss.
