Great buy.

It is an exceptional buy, do it if you can. I bought five, but wish I had know they were coming up as I would have bought a lot more.

Well these barrels certainly seem to be a good deal at $125.00 and I'd like to build another rifle however, for me think the best deal would be just to order a CMP special grade rifle and be done with it.

Bought 4 this morning. I will keep them to rebarrel rifles as they wear out. A lot of folks have late SA rifles, so these barrels will be perfect.

Figuring one of these barrels would have cost $300+ on the market prior to this release.

Orest's last auction they were going for $350, if you can believe it.

Well, I'm going to order two, maybe. So far, I haven't been able to logon today. I'm not sure if that's because of the barrels and WW2 bayonets being listed, or CMP adding M1C/D accessories(scopes, flashiders, pads, etc.) to the mix.

I still haven't been able to log onto CMP sales, can't spend all day & night w/ that. Last I saw 2,000 barrels had been ordered. Must be a feeding frenzy over there. Somebody buying extra barrels save me a couple or put 'em in the PX.

If you are using a old link to CMP that you have saved thats probably the problem. They updated their site to a different server

Well, ya'll keep holding that breath. My piddling order for 2 barrels got kicked back because CMP lost my U.S. birth cert and TX D/L, which I'll have to replace for CMP's files. The system won't accept my CC until I prove my citizenship and there won't be any humans at CMP until Monday.

Good luck with your orders! Old Springfield made good battle rifle barrels.

New Barrels

My 2 M-1 Garand barrels got to Mt. today. One is a SA 1-51.
The other is a SA 12-51 Both have a MW of less than 1.

Guess I lucked out again.
