CMP will not get you a "collectable" M1.....you will get a safe shooter......the receiver will be the only original part....other parts will come from who knows where......Garand Owners Association has a video showing the CMP process each M1goes through.......that being said.....when the old civilian marksmanship program was run by the Army, my first M1 was an International Harvester and all parts are marked IHC.......luck of the draw I guess.

Matter of interpretation if you want a "true" collectable have at and God bless you.....my original point is most of the rifles you get from the CMP are safe shooters....have fun at the range, take it deer hunting, shoot it in some Garand matches or hang iron the wall....bottom line is it is your to do with as you please......within the law of course.

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.

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.
