Skipped class this morning to await the 10:30 AM arrival of my M1 Garand. It came 15 minutes early and it was almost unreal opening the case and taking in ALL the history that rifle has seen. SA in the 944 thousand range puts it from Oct. 1942. It's got a fair amount of cosmo in some cracks, some in the stock, but the internal mag system, the bolt, and the breach look VERY clean. I know everyone wants pics, but I gotta go to class! Pics tonight!

Thanks to everyone who helped me get this together, special thanks to milsurp collector!
