So I have a CMP Garand...a real cherry one too. Service grade, 1939 manufacture (5-digit) Springfield Armory. Metal is in great condition, NM op rod, 2 ME. I thought I was fine with just having one.

Of course, once the CMP ran out of them, I started jonesing to get another one but wasn't going to pay gun show/gun shop prices (usually $850+ for a rat trap old beater). So when the email came from CMP this weekend that they had just received a "sizeable" shipment, I got the paperwork together and sent off my order for another one. They suspect 3-6 month wait but, no matter...I'm in queue.

Other reports I've seen put the shipment at between 80K - 110K rifles. Hopefully they'll still have some next July when I make my annual pilgramage to the North Store to pick out one more for myself...maybe a different manufacturer this time. Of course, maybe they'll have some more M1 Carbines out by then as well. I can do a two-fer.

My postal money order went out this morning. My H&R and Springfield were getting lonely. A friend just came back from shooting at Camp Perry. He was hearing that the quantity available was in the 5,000 range. It will be interesting to hear if the CMP reveals the real number.

According to CMP, they expect this shipment to last for several years. :D
