    Got my order in for a service grade M1 during the window that CMP was accepting back orders & it just came in. It's a LEAD rebuild from 1965 with a SA six digit receiver (from 1942) with "LEAD 9-65" etched on it. It was re-parked with the distinctive LEAD silver park and looks like it hasn't...

    How about a nice milsurp posting to cleanse the palate. I'm not sure what is going on with them members of the forum, but it seems like High School drama and BS. I came here to talk about firearms, and will continue to do so. So, to start with I don't have pictures yet, but I can try to...

    My last purchase was Son of Garand(M1A) about 6 months ago now I'm thinking the predecessor needs to join the Springfield. I want to go CMP and curious how the quality of the pieces coming out of there are currently. Anyone bought a service grade Garand from CMP recently or any version from them...

    Fingers crossed, not confident Barry would ever sign this, especially after the Oregon shooting but it would be sweet. "The legislation on the 1911 pistols has passed the House. The Senate plans to take it up next week. If it passes, then it will head to the President's desk. If signed, we will...

    Just picked up my M1 that I purchased from CMP. It was a pleasure dealing with Jerry for the transfer. He showed me how to avoid "M1 thumb". I guess that's the small side benefit of living in this toilet bowl of a state - the FFL requirement gives you the opportunity to meet new people (like...

    I wanna cry. Especially after seeing the pricing. Beats me how they can turn a profit on a $20 million, state of the art facility like this. http://thecmp.org/cm...ksmanship-park/ http://www.thetrutha...oting-facility/

    Haven't ordered any 30.06 from the CMP since unsafe went into effect. Has anybody ordered recently? And what FFL are we using? Thanks in advance.

    I've been keeping my Garand I've got from CMP about a year ago in the hard case it came in locked in a closet. Is this ok or should I put it in a gun sock in my safe. I'm not so concerned about security as I am about moisture and possible rusting. I've read that it's not a good idea to keep...
