I picked these two up last night, new stock, mismatched parts, but will run great!!! A collector they're not, but shooters they are. Get one, shoot the piss out of it and have a ball!!!

I would try the CMP first. I got mine back in 1983 when the CMP was the DCM. It's a SA with BA stamped on the stock. Never had a problem...shoots great. Good luck with your search. Dick

My feeling on CMP M1 rifles are.....in todays world getting a "field grade" is perhaps the best $550.00 firearm investment today. IMHO I like the H&R M1s as they were made after the war and may not have been subject to as much "potential" abuse as a Springfield "might" have been (perhaps used in combat). Just a thought. Buying from the CMP is quite easy...just takes a little time.

I dont want to come across like I am dissagreeing with every post you make just to start a arguement.
It doesnt matter what the manufacture SA Post War, SA WWII ,HRA Post War they will all fall within the grade description
Todays Field Grades are yesterdays Rack Grades. The Field Grades do fall within the Grade description but for the most part are at the lower end of description.
Years back you could order a FG and get a rifle that may need alittle TLC but would still be a good shooter
I have handled many ,many hundreds of Field Grade rifles and in the last few years most of them are canidates for a rebarrel, a large percent of them with 6-7 Muzzle Wear
If you can hand pick I strongly recommend looking through the FG rifles first as there can be a gem or two hidden amoung them.
For mail order I would not take the chance. Yes someone will post how they got a great FG rifle but trust me it is not the norm anymore .
With a FG expect cracked ,worn mixmatched wood, worn barrel in need of replacement.
For $100 more on a Service Grade ($625) you are getting a rifle that you will not need to do anything to and will be a good shooter
CMP has the best customer service if you would have a issue with your rifle they will take care of you
Just my opinion yours may vary

I just want a IH one.. I dont care if it looked like it was dug out of a field and run over by a tank, but even those bring more than I can afford...

As my posts seem to come under criticism and opinions are questioned as solid facts, perhaps I would be better off visiting another forum. Trez...as posted earlier my IHC with all IHC parts was purchased from the old DCM. As stated it was luck of the draw....one of the few times I have come out on the best end of a deal........and with the government no less.

I was afraid you would take my post wrong I would just hate for anyone to mail order a FG and it be a $525 dissapointment
Todays Field Grades are not the same as a few years back.
I handle enough of them to know
Again, just trying to help
