    I got my CMP Garand from my wife as my retirement gift when I retired from the US Army. Went and picked her up from the South Store in Anniston. If you haven't been there, you really need to go. Its worth the drive!

    And the swapping begins... lol Just make sure the parts would be correct for each of your rifles; easier to do with an HRA since it would be all post-war with just a couple variations, than with a SA that spanned 25+ years with a bunch of revision codes. I received an HRA from the CMP a few weeks ago, and have already swapped an all-SA trigger group with a buddy for an all-HRA group so that my HRA is now nearly all correct.

    As LDP said above, a trip to either the South Store (in Alabama) or the North Store (in Ohio) would be an eye-opener, though maybe not so much these days since most of their M1's are going straight to mail-orders. The racks in the stores aren't as full as they were a year ago. Still, well worth a stop if you're in the area, or even a road trip for the purpose of visiting one of the Stores.

    A trip to the store is definitely on my list. Might try to do that some weekend before the end of the year.

    Congrats on your retirement and thank you for your service!

    Did you check and see what kind of stock you had?

    Didn't get a chance to. Had softball last night and was wiped out when I got home. It will happen tonight, along with pictures.

    I need to visit the ranges you guys use. I go to Red Castle, but the regulars there are so jaded they don't even bat an eyelash when I uncase and shoot a "plebeian" M1 Garand. The only time anyone ever noticed was when I had a M1D and a M1903A4 laid out side by side.

    Now you can do like everyone else and take your CMP Garand and put it on Facebook for three times what you paid for it!!!

    I bought a service grade from CMP last summer. It's mostly H&R parts but does have some SA parts as well in it. Love the weapon. One of my favorites in the safe.
