CMP does not and will not have any of the Korean Return Garands. Those Garands were sold to Korea originally and are property of Korea so they will be sold to the highest bidder and Imported back to the US. They will have the Importers mark stamped on them
CMP gets their rifles directly from the US Army and are not Import Marked
IMO the best deal is the Service Grade from CMP $625
There will be IHC Garands (price unknown) at CMP in the near future and they will be sold through mail order
