Latest Score from the CMP!
« on: February 19, 2011, 12:16:37 AM »
Here's my newest CMP M1.  Specifics:

Ordered:  CMP M1 Garand, HRA, Service Grade, $595.  Mid December 2010

Received:  M1 Garand, HRA, 4.74 million, All HRA except SA bolt & stock, 98% finish, Throat Erosion 2, Muzzle Erosion, 1+, TIGHT new CMP stock, 10 Feb 2011.







And not to be left out, Walker spent his Christmas money on a CMMG dedicated 22LR upper for his CMMG lower.  Lot better than video games...  Here's a photo with my Liberty Kodiak TL attached.

Nice stick.

How's it shoot?
"Unhappy it is, though, to reflect that a brother's sword has been sheathed in a brother's breast and that the once-happy and peaceful plains of America are either to be drenched with blood or inhabited by a race of slaves.  Sad alternative!  But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice?" - George Washington - from a letter to a close friend after the events of April 19, 1775

"There is no nation on earth powerful enough to accomplish our (the United States) overthrow.  Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter.  From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence, I must confess that I do apprehend some danger.  I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants, and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing." - Daniel Webster, June 1, 1837

Now that's a good-lookin' Garand.
Tight stock, eh? If you want it to stay tight, unlatch the trigger guard and keep it that way all the time it's not going 'BOOM'.

As measured by CMP.  I don't have the gauges.

Rifle sure looks minimally used.  Course it may have been refinished.  The HRAs apparently were used very little, having been produced at the end of the service life of the Garand.

Don't know how the Garand shoots yet.  Haven't had the chance to try it out.

The boys and I did shoot the heck out of the CMMG dedicated 22LR rig.  250 rounds and not a single malfunction.  All fired suppressed so lots of gunk in the stainless steel Atchison Action but it kept running fine...  Mix of Federal Maroon bulk, CCI Subsonic, and Remington Subsonic.  All cycled fine.  Couldn't comment on accuracy...we were only shooting at steel rimfire silhouettes at 25 yards.  Plenty accurate to knock them down every time regardless of ammo.  Of course Walker only hits rams and hogs at 25 yards and then only 1 out of 5 shots...but he just turned 6.  I'm working on getting him there.  Right now, we're still on a rest with him...focusing on sight picture (put the dot on the critter), respiratory pause, and trigger control.  He's starting to figure it out.  Loves the Suppressor.

My recent CMP HRA is very similar. Perfect metal and the same numbers on TE and ME. Only difference is mine had the original stock with cartouches. The only part that isn't original is the oprod. I'm guessing these puppies sat in a vat of cosmo somewhere and were hardly ever shot. They REALLY missed out! But it's our gain now.

Beautiful rifle NMMI! At the next AS we all work together we will have to have everyone bring theirs and set them up using the stacking swivels. Hey we need some eye candy on the range too right?  >:D

If yours shoots half as good as mine you will be a very happy man!

by 'chow hall' do you mean 'tavern?'...... I understand that you had to unload and stack before going in.....
Your version of "ineffective" does not necessarily reflect the truth....
Having been "ineffectively" taught to the Rifleman Standard and having been "ineffectively" taught to teach others to the Rifleman Standard, I believe I prefer the "ineffective" over the other choice.
