...it arrived around 10:22AM today, 145 days after I dropped my purchase order in the mail (not that I was counting/waiting..). I am very, very pleased. The stock has some wear, but the rest of the gun looks barely fired. Plenty 'o cosmoline to remove later.

Serial number is 5623xxx, putting it around 1955.

Very nice rifle for sure. What barrel does it have in it, HRA, LMR? My HRA correct grade is the tightest shooting Garand I own.

HRs are great. I got a Service grade a couple years ago and I feel like it isn't even broken in. I believe they were among the last of the Garands made and didn't see much action. I paid something like $550 for mine: what a steal!
