Two Garands, ordered a rack grade SA, which is actually a field grade, guess they ran out or something. Serial # is low 89,000's, stock is filthy, needs some TLC, barrel looks great, functions properly, great patina to the metal.

The WRA has a mis-matched rough stock, all black metal finish, good barrel, functions, etc.

The WRA Carbine is nice, though the stock looks weather beaten, all in all pleased, will post photos in next day or so.

Took 4 weeks to get them from the time I mailed the paperwork.

Pretty cool stuff: snagged a 5 digit and a GL stock. Happen to pull any uncommon/rare parts (lockbars, op rods, barrels)? I remember one of my first service grade Garands came with a WRA un-cut oprod and an LMR barrel.

I got the e-mail from them about 2.5 weeks after I sent it, then the order was going thru the motions and when I checked my bank I noticed the charge for the rifles, then I got an e-mail on Friday that said they were being shipped over night, but since no Saturday delivery on these, I got them Monday.

About the same for me. They had a big rush after announcing new SG carbines and the arrival of some HXP ammo. I think things are starting to calm down again...

Next time, send the paperwork in next day. It's all about when the papaerwork gets there that really starts the clock ticking...

Thanks. Owning these things, taking them apart, fixing them up, shooting them, reloading for them, owning and reading books about them, reading stuff on forums, talking to guys at gun shows, etc. There is a lot of good information in books and on the Internet regarding history, and for the practical side of things (removing cosmo and rust, refinishing wood, etc.) I just learned by doing. For example, I took a new CMP birch Garand stock set and refinished it.

I learned a lot doing that http://www.surplusrifleforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=78117&sid=3c503fa54342359072fccc4a488685ca

But there are a lot of guys who know more than me that I learn from, and we are lucky to have forums like these so we can all share information. :)

I thought long and hard about ordering a collector or special grade and frankly it boiled down to me wanting a shooter rather than a safe queen. So for about the same money I ordered my first SA in service grade and another IBM carbine racker.

Order sent: 3/27
Recieved :3/31
DBU: 4/7

Now the hard part ............WAITING :D

Don't worry, it comes faster than you think. And, some of the Garands showing up are just beautiful... Good time to get one.
