Just brought home my M-1 Garand from the CMP facility in Anniston Alabama. If you are a member if CMP, don't miss out on owning the most iconic rifle in American history. Mine appears to have never been fired according to the staff there in Anniston. Some of these rifles have been in ROTC possession and although handled extensively, have not been fired. Mine gaged a 1 on the bore check and had a new walnut stock. As soon as I got home, I dropped by a friend who served in Europe during WWII. He grinned from ear to ear upon seeing his old weapon from the war. It made it all worthwhile. It shoots great, and a real piece of history for many to enjoy.
