Glad I live in Alabama near CMP's store in Anniston. No waiting and I get to handpick the one I want.

Add me to that. I've been concentrating on acquiring combloc weapons but I would sincerely love to have a Garand. I'll soon be finding out what the kick of a Mosin-Nagant is like. Mine should be showing up soon as well as a couple of 440-round tins of Bulgarian 7.62 x 54R ammo.

Here you go boys and girls. That's me shooting at 200 yards at a local CMP Match. Love that Garand.

Good stuff Joe.

Saturday morning I worked on the Garand and my Inland M1 carbine. I really scrubbed out the barrel on the Garand and changed out the recoil spring for a Wolff extra power spring.

Then I dissassembled the carbine and soaked the receiver in kerosene. It still had a bunch of cosmoline on it and the rear sight was just crusty with it. Then yesterday I scrubbed it up, lubed and reassembled it. I also replaced the recoil spring with a Wolff spring.

I enjoy doing stuff like that and it expands my skills and knowledge level.

Very nice.
I want to get a bayonet for it as well as the M1 carbine. I'm just waiting for some spare/extra cash.

How much does the M1 Garand usually go for? I have been dying to add one to my pitifully small collection of rifles.
