My first ever CMP purchased M1 Garand arrived today! I opted for the service grade Springfield. Holy crap!!! What people have been saying about the condition of CMPís service grades is not to be under estimated!!! The metal is almost perfect!!! Thereís just the tiniest bit of wear on the bottom and sides of the gas tube. Thatís about it! I was hoping for original USGI wood for a more historical look, but can one really complain about brand new mint condition wood?!!! Nooooo!!! (Serial #42XXXX) Also, I got a period correct American Fork and Hoe bayonet for it, and 400 rounds of M2 ammo.
Very happy!!! Now if only the Winchesters would come in! :p

Congratulation! That is a double win being 6 digit. Reason you see less wear on the metal is it more likely a repark by the Greek and wearing the dreaded "Greek black". You can tell Greek repark with black chamber and really black color compared to gray/greenish park on USGI.

You need to post pics.

After reading your post, I am not too worried now on the order I placed. I too ordered SA service grade, just mailed it yesterday. The wait is killing me. Hope you post pictures soon of your newly acquired M1.
