It is what it is. There's no way to keep people from reselling, either "on purpose" or just maybe going a little crazy and then the first time they need some cash or room in the safe the least favorite Garand goes. Either way the CMP gets their asking price and they get into the hands of private citizens where they belong.

Personally I picked up an extra service grade early this year thinking I'd have the option of either keeping it or selling it depending on how I like it. As it turns out it's too nice to sell. :-)

Then again I'm not much one for selling guns. I really should sell 3-4 of the Mosins before the end of the year but I'm just not that motivated to get off my butt and do it.

Credit card hit today for both of my rifles. With delivery likely next week that is effectively 4 months from DBU to delivery. That is why people are saying that if you don't have your order in now it isn't likely to be filled before the end of the year.

Who said that I am disposing of the other 3 at a profit ?
Did it ever occur to you that some of my immediate family will be getting a few at cost ?

Maybe you should find out the facts before you start flaming people and start shootin' off your keyboard.

. UPDATE ! Two of my four went to a fellow Calgunner.. AT COST . {+- $5.00} Bazinga !

My CMP Special got a tracking number Friday but must have missed the Fedex truck. The tracking number just shows as issued with no pickup record yet. So this will just be another boring Monday.

On the other hand I checked the e-store today and my HRA service grade is now also listed as shipped with a tracking number. Apparently I will have two packages showing up tomorrow.

Just wanted to give an update.

Order # 466329 for HRA SG
Mailed: 4-8-13
Received: 4-10-13
DBU: 4-17-13
EStore: 6-25-13
CC Hit: 8-14-13
Shipped: 8-15-13
Received:8-16-13
Serial #: 5655XXX

Not too much cosmoline on the thing. Did a detailed tear down and found pretty much all HRA parts except for the bolt and trigger group.

Not too sure how to continue forward with the stock though, everything I read says to apply BLO or PTO, but that was for people completely refinishing their stocks, does the same apply if I'm not completely stripping it down to bare wood?

Pretty! If you're pretty happy with the finish maybe use gunny paste and call it a day.

Thanks,

I was thinking about doing that, but wasn't sure if I needed to add any oil to it or not.

I just finished cleaning mine up this weekend. By the time I had got the wax or cosmo off of the stock it looked a little dry so I did the following:
  • Used a heat gun to bring the cosmo up to the surface
  • After removing the cosmo I wiped the stock down with odorless mineral spirits to remove the greasy feeling
  • Apply BLO that I picked up from Ace and let sit for 15 minutes
  • Wiped excess BLO off
  • Waited a day and then applied BLO again with 0000 steel wool wiping softly with the grain
  • Let sit again and removed excess

I think it came out really well, it still has the character but is a little richer.

Just got a call from the CMP asking if I would switch from a HRA SG to a Springfield SG. I said yes and he was to ship the rifle out this week! My DBU email was 4/22. He states that there is still a long back order on the HRA models.

CMP Special ?

As expect my HRA Service grade Garand came today. Tag says Muzzle = 1, Throat = 2+. Stock has its share of "character" with a couple of significant gouges. Metal is worn in parts. It was rebuilt at some point and the serials are not matching.

FWIW CMP never contacted me to ask if I wanted a SA Service grade instead. I got exactly what I ordered.

Unexpected was the fact that my CMP Special did not show. Fedex tracking shows it leaving Memphis but there is no arrival scan here in California. Will have to alert CMP. I would expect they get fast action from Fedex who won't want a firearm loose in their system.

Update- Fedex is telling me that the package was miss-sorted and will come tomorrow instead of today. The initial contact said they would investigate and let me know something tomorrow but as I suspected once they learned what was in the shipment (they asked) suddenly it was a priority to figure out what happened. I'll be checking the package carefully before I sign for it to make sure no one tried any funny business with it in transit.

Sent mine in last week, hopefully I get it before the new year. Was able to send in my app free of charge due to USPS not meeting their delivery guarantee, so I got my money back. Seems to be a good start to the process.

I would send in the application right away. There is a good chance you would receive it before 1/1/14. If you don't you'll be kicking yourself for not ordering one.

Did you apply online? There was a check box for them to notify the cmp for you, but you could always mail in your order then scan and email customer service with your card. They'll contact you if there's ever an issue so I say, go for it, get your order inline.

Springfield Field Grade (1) Serial number 3420xxx. Jan of '45. Barrel was replaced with a SA '51. Mixmaster of wood and parts as expected of a Field Grade. Decent reading for a Field Grade on the Muzzle and Throat Wear. Overall pretty happy. Not sure what the hole is on the bottom of the pistol grip?

Nice rifle

The stock came from a Danish return M1 Garand. The cutout was for a Danish unit disk. The serial number was also stamped on the stock by the Danes.

you type in the CMP-affiliated club or state association that you are a member of. In order to buy from the CMP, you have to be a member of one of their affiliated clubs. On the CMP site, they have a list of clubs that they are affiliated with.

awesome, good luck to you. I know it'll be hard, but try not to obsess over it. I already knew it would be a few months for mine to arrive so I put it in the back of my mind. Didn't really start following timelines and checking the estore every now and then until I got an email saying my ammo shipped.

Took just under 4 months for me to get mine, just to give you an idea. Still cleaning it up. Now I need to find time to make it out to the desert so I can try it out.
