So I finally sent in all the paperwork for a SA service grade M1 Garand. :D

Has anyone recently bought one? I was just wondering when they would charge my CC & how long it would take for them to ship it & would they inform you via email when they ship it so you can wait for it at home?

I mailed it in last week. Thanks.

I want to say it was just under 60 days that my order that was filled right before Christmas. CMP will email you one or two days before your shipment is due to be shipped, so watch your email like a hawk. Is you can't be home you may want to have Fed ex hold it at one of their distribution sites and pick it up after work.

When did they charge your Credit Card or cash your check?

Sorry about the spelling, the auto correct on my phone had a mind of its own.

My check was cashed when my order was processed and it took another three weeks or so to get to the shipping dept.

Once you receive your DBU email, I would say a week to 10 days after that and the BWT of joy will shot up before 10:30 delivering some long flat box from CMP.

Like this. What a beautiful site to see.

I stopped in Port Clinton last summer and bought Correct Grade in .308. It shipped the next day and beat me home.

I will tell you that they will take about 45-60 days at least. O said they had thousands of orders waiting for them when they Got back on the 2nd. They are so backed up, they are not even worrying about the atores

I sent in an order for a Navy barreled receiver and an HRA Service GRade around the 18th of Nov, and had them 4 weeks to the day after I sent the order in. Might have been a bit quicker since the GCA hadn't updated me and I had to resubmit my notorized form. But, that was before the madness started.
Currently waiting for an order of Carbine ammo to get processed, and it was submitted on the 3rd of Jan. I just sent in an order for another barreled receiver. Since the craze has started, who knows how long it will take.

I have never seen a "Correct Grade in .308". Does it say on the COA as "Correct Grade"? The latest .308 offering is the CMP Special which is a put together rifle with parts from every manufacturer and era to include repro parts and CBI tube. Not what you call "Correct Grade".

I would be interested to see what you have. Please post pics.

I bet he means a special grade.

I ordered my Service Grade around Late February 2012 and it got charged and shipped within a month. I'd say about 24 days from submission to receipt.

My M-1 came with a new wood furniture too so it actually looked like it was brand new. Wish I could post pics from here.

The case it arrives in too is pretty nice. Also it's quite long, won't fit in the trunk of my Civic Coupe width-wise, I have to drop the back seat to slide in in that way.

Orest also mentioned they have so many people working to get service grades ready to go the armorers have stopped working on the IHC Garands. If they run out of ready-to-go service grades it could take quite a while for orders to be filled.

Big difference from correct to special. If there was a "Correct Grade" .308 I'm sure it would have gone to acution and would fetch few thousand dollars.

Today we are all spoiled by how fast O and the CMP folks cranks them out. When I bought my first M1 through the old DCM, it was so long that I forgot about it till one day a long box was delivered with a post war SA M1. Took over a year for mine to arrive. So, a month or two pales to the old DCM standard of over a year.:eek:

Wow! Looks like I'll be waiting for a bit then. I also ordered 30.06 Greek ammo, enbloc clips & sling. Do they ship separately or altogether?

Also, how do you folks carry your ammo (loaded in clips). Do you use the GI issued pouches? Any pictures will be appreciated. Thanks.:D

ooops! I wrote all my orders on the order sheet. Garand, clips, ammo & sling. I thought since this is my 1st time ordering, I should do that.

I sent in my paperwork on Dec 18 and I just got confirmation that they received it 2 days ago. I have not gotten a real order number yet. Either they had a long xmas break or they are real swamped right now (or both).

You are GTG on one order form but they will send the rifle overnight while ground for the ORM-D ammo.

Both. They do all take off for a coupe of weeks around Christmas because it's all hands on deck during the summer because they have to deal with competitions, etc.

Sounds like I will probably get my ammo before the rifle due to the rush of orders.

Last year I went to Port Clinton to see the place and to actually be able to pick one out personally. Great places to eat walleye and perch!This was on a Saturday and Monday they shipped it by Fedex, which was $22 something. I also went to the Anniston store in October and picked two of them out.
The Correct Grade is with the matching parts/numbers. The stock is original. I found one that the stock was in emmaculate shape.
I bought a CMP Special Grade which the hardware may have mixed parts, but the stock is brand new, not original. Thats what a CMP Special is. You can go to the rifle sales and then click on Garand and it will explain everything. All 3 of mine were made in the mid 50's which was fine with me.
You can go to the CMP(Civilian Marksmanship Program) webiste and on their home page you can click on" sales" and then on the lower left margin is "Forums." Once there you can register like you did here and then ask all kinds of questions and you will get answers and replies. Very nice people!!
