Looks like you got a good one. Did the CMP send you the card with the TE/MW on it? Do they still do that?

If so, what is the TE/MW?

No, I didn't get any card with the TE/MW on it. It's a correct grade which means it should be in pretty good shape, I hope.

They sent one clip with the rifle. The ammo I ordered from CMP is coming with eight more though. I was also planning on ordering some two and five round clips.
