  1. First CMP Garand, bit rough but original barrel?

    Steel and Wood
    Hello, I finally got around to sending my CMP paperwork out three weeks ago forr a Field Grade M1 Garand and it arrived today. The heel say's Springfield Armory, and every part I can find on it that's stamped is stamped SA so that's pretty neat I think. The serial number puts it in the 1952...

    M1 Garand Accuracy
    People have asked, and I stumbled across more information this morning, while digging around for something else. Looks as if hard copies might be available quite soon. The color use is quite lavish, and I was very surprised how much I, myself, enjoyed it. Who knows? If I live another...

  8. *Claimed*
