    I just got the new Garand Collectors Journal and there is a good article about CMP getting more M1's from Turkey. So far they have negotiated to get 8850 from the Turkish Navy. And they are now here. Oddly enough, one third of them (3,000) are IHC made. They will be working on getting M1's from other branches of the Turkish military. It is believed that there could be as many as 140,000 more stored away. There was no mention of what it cost them.

    Can someone explain the process of getting one of them to me? I am a member of a range affiliated with them but live in PA can I just drive out (to Ohio) and buy one or is there more to it?

    CMP can mail it to you. They operate under a special Congressional charter so no FFL is required to have it shipped to your home. Go to their web site and order a rifle, you're done.

    That's the easy part, the hard part is the $1,019.95 payment.:D. and the six weeks watching for the delivery truck each day.

    I heard about that, I'm a patient person but I heard you can go there "pick" a rifle and get surplus ammo for it and .30 carbine ammo. And who wants to wait 6 weeks I'd drive the 6 hours haha.

    I would like to go to the the South store and pick one up. I understand this is the best place to pick up your CMP. The motels even have special rates for CMP customers. Problem is it is over 2,000 miles east of me one way.:(

    Funny - I was just on the site a few hours ago trying to figure out whether to get a Garand or Carbine. I really want both...Not sure I can afford either right now.

    The North Store is in Ohio. Yes, you can pick up a rifle from stock available. The people will help you choose etc. Make sure you have all your paper work.:)

    The North Store is just as good as the South Store. Inventory will vary between both stores. Right now there isnt alot to choose from in either store from all the panic buying.

    Camp Perry is near Port Clinton (not slimy Bill), Ohio and Cedar Point. CP is a large amusement park. Port Clinton is Betwen Cleveland and Toledo, on the shores of Lake Erie.

    Take the family, drop em off at Cedar Point and drive about 10 mi to Camp Perry for some shopping.
