    Cool!
    Now comes the fun part. The field strip, inspection, clean up!...more inspection, reassembly, and range trip planning! :D

    I don't know if this your first or tenth Garand...doesn't matter! They are so cool!

    This is the 1st of hopefully several. It's a Springfield. The bolt appears to be an HRA. Guess Santa came early this year:D I'll get some better pictures when I clean it up this weekend.

    I'm guessing it was not a CMP...

    I'm guessing it was because of the tag on it, and it looks like the foam that comes in their shipping boxes. Plus, he talked about not getting the DBU email.

    The turnaround time was pretty short if so, maybe they're cathing up! Just over a month...

    I received mine yesterday (Dec 16th), a Springfield Armory Service Grade in very nice condition. I mailed the completed forms and check to CMP on Nov 17th, so that was much quicker service than I expected. Merry Christmas(!) plus an unexpected bonus... the serial number indicates that it was made the year I was born (1955).

    I got mine the Monday of Veteran's Day. Mine was ordered @ August 20. Serial was 5.8 Mil Springfield, making it early 1958.

    Enjoy. This is one fine piece of history & hardware. Good news: CMP is supposed to get some more ammo in the spring. Keep an eye out!

    Dang, that's Service Grade? Lots awesome-I'd thought S.G wasn't that great.
    Congrats on a wonderful rifle.
