    ...My CMP M1 Garand is shipping today and will arrive on my doorstep by 10:30 tomorrow morning :D

    I told my boss I would be a little late to the office tomorrow...

    Hell, go ahead and tell him/her you won't be coming in and take a trip to the range for some bonding time! :evil: Congrats, enjoy, and post pics!

    Congrats WesM. Service grade?

  4. WesM

    WesM Well-Known Member

    Yup, Service Grade. It's a Springfield 5.8 million serial number. I am still learning a lot about them. It will be my first.

    It actually will have taken less than a month from when I placed my order to the rifle arriving at my doorstep.

    Congratulations! The M1 is so cool...you will never regret the purchase. Mine resides in the front left position in my safe...so I can see it every time the safe is opened. :D

    Let it warm up...give it a good cleaning, read the book that comes from CMP, and grab your gear. The range is waiting!

    My Springer is in the same SN range. I hope yours comes out as good as mine did. Bottom piece of wood is excellent; top piece is good; metal is in good condition; bore is very good; bluing/parking is good except OUTSIDE of the muzzle.

    Make sure you lube it up well. Mine came pretty dry.

    Out of curiosity...when did you order? I ordered the early part of August and received the week of Veteran's Day.

    I ordered it about the 2nd week in December, so it will have taken less than a month to process and ship my order, even over the holidays. Not bad, I guess the 90 day waiting is over?

    If you don't mind Wes, what did you have to pay 'em?

    Sorry to sound like a dub, but what can I say... I am one :)

    What is CMP?

    CMP Service Grades run $595, plus 22.95 shipping I think, so the total was $617.95.

    That's not including the club membership dues (I went to an Appleseed and joined the Revolutionary War Veterans Association ($20/yr) to meet my "club" requirement).

    Civilian Marksmanship Program - www.odcmp.com

    The only way aside from a FFL that you can get a high-powered military rifle delivered right to your front door. :)

    Wow. Thank you, that is awesome. I am about one month away from getting my first 1911, but the M1 Garand is number 2 on the list. What a fabulous program!

    It looks like the Maine association is where my friend runs the IDPA program. I will be looking into this in the spring.

    Thanks again!

    I can't say enough good things about the CMP. :cool:

    This is what they sent me last July.

    Hey, good luck on your part. That sounds like a great number. I have a 5,777,xxx H&R from CMP with a pristine bore and in great shape. Enjoy it!

    Oh God...There is CZ's Beauty again. Enjoy. You will find they are like Lay's Potatoe Chips....

    Sorry I just can't help myself.

    Here is my favorite M1. It's a 1955 HRA with a Line Material Co. barrel. It's the best shooter that I've ever seen.

  17. Woo hoo! Gotta love Garands. :D

    My tracking info shows that my Garand is now at the local Fedex facility, about 15 miles away...

    Good lord this wait is agonizing!! :)

    For anybody living vicariously through me today, or reliving your own CMP delivery days, the rifle is now on the truck and out for delivery.

    I am going to get whiplash looking out my window every time a truck drives by...
