They’re here! Pair of HRA CMP M1 Garands!

It has been about 3 months but my two M1 Garands have arrived from CMP! Only one is mine (the other is a gift for someone who deserves one). I am very excited as the M1 Garand is one of the finest weapons ever designed (as someone famous once said). The two that I ordered were H&R Service Grades. I was pleasantly surprised at the nice CMP stamped hard cases that they now come in.

My last Garand was a Springfield Service Grade. To be honest it (at least the wood) was in better shape. However, these two definitely seemed more broken in (smoother) although quite a bit more used. The foreends had a definite darker stain than normal. I am not sure if that is a CMP thing, but I like it.

Anyway, without adieu – some pics…

Just ordered a CMP Garand

Well, I just submitted my paperwork for another M1 Garand (it will be my second). It should only be a short 6 month wait! Wow, and I thought 2 months was a long wait last time! How times change.

For those not familiar CMP = Civilian Marksmanship Program they have some great benefits & programs! One of their most popular benefits is the purchase of a former issue M1 Garand rifle! Meeting the program requirements is not very hard and you can own a piece of history. If you have any interest I would purchase in the near future, you never know what will happen, or how long supply will last.

Anyway, just wanted to share :)

Here is my Springfield and my Inland M1 Carbine, both from the CMP (Carbines are long gone I am afraid – I wish I got two)…
