My CMP service grade order arrived. A 1952 Springfield with the original barrel in a beautiful stock with P and RA stampings and a rack number. Second was a 1943 Springfield in an interesting surplus stock. Front handguard is a site for sore eyes but I found a replacement on eBay which should be a close match when it arrives.

I have to say my first three orders from CMP were a little underwhelming (every one had new stocks) but the last two they definitely spoiled me

Last order I stickied for ww2 date and GI stock they sent me a 1945 Springfield with a gi stock. This order I stickied for the same thing and got most of what I wanted so I’d say the stickies definitely work!

Always drives me crazy when folks lean or lay firearms on rocks, gravel, brick, stones, blocks etc to take a photo. I don’t guess you could hurt your Yugo but don’t do that to a Garand. There are lots of less potentially damaging photo locations. Hopefully they will clean up nice. Garands are da bomb.

Rariton rebuilds are uncommon, Does it have many original SA parts? What were the ME/TE readings? You did very well!

Appears to be mostly SA. One HRA part that I’ve found so far. Let me know if you want any more photos. I originally didn’t want any M1s made after WW2 but this might be my favorite 🤣

You could easily swap out that HRA oprod for a SA marked one. The correct oprod for your rifle is D35382 SA heat lot 9, Straight bolt lug, 5/16 inch radius cut, flat side, marking on bottom. Used on armory rebuilt rifles. Easy to find part and the rifle has good barrel wear......shoot it forever! Your bolt, trigger housing and barrel are original to the gun+++++.

I have five CMP garands now so I’m sure I have one I could swap off one of the other mismatched guns. Thanks for the complements!

Very nice. I didn't realize the CMP had resumed taking orders. Their site suggested they were still backlogged. Looks like I need to purchase another one!

This is from April. I got my order in before they stopped accepting service grade orders. As of now you can only order field grade

Wow, glad your rifle survived the photo shoot ok. Next time you'll have to drop it harder on those rocks, hee hee! Great looking rifles and I too like the early post war #420xxxx example. Agree you did very well on both of them. Years ago I got what I think were original condition uppers {barred actions} where all the parts looked and were appropriate to build. So I swapped out trigger groups on two of them. I have mixed feelings about that now but of course the choice is yours. Have no idea if a "correct parts rifle" is worth that much more than a mixed parts rifle? I have never done a price analysis. Congrats on your two rifles.

Regards, John.
