Yesterday the Fed Ex driver delivered what will probably be my last Garand from the CMP as political and collector demand will probably dry up the source of these historical items. Guess I am fortunate that it only took 9 months for delivery given todays demands. Anyway, there is once again no disappointment with the product. Field grade, muzzle reading +1, throat reading +2. Stock appears to be walnut and has an interesting cartushe. It is a H&R with a HRA 3-55 barrel. Most parts are marked HRA. No really bad stock wear and most dents can be steamed out..no big nasty gouges..light sanding and linseed oil should finish the job. Overall very pleased. Have never been disappointed with field grade M1's.
