That's wishful thinking that it's an unissued rifle. Take a look at the Auctions, etc and see how many thousands of dollars an unissued M1 is going for. I will say the M1's coming out of the CMP are top notch and regardless of whether it was issued or not, you got an excellent quality rifle that will shoot VERY well. Enjoy!
