Very nice

Mine came with a nice condition rack number as well.  I actually removed the stock, and replaced it with a Dupage laminated one just to preserve it, lul.

Slight off topic-  Picked up a nice 03 a couple days ago at CMP.  Very very nice condition.  Can't wait to shoot it...

Nice, I did not know they had SA Field Grades in stock for mail order.

That rifle looks pretty good, condition-wise, for a field grade. The ME/TE numbers are also quite nice for a FG. I gauged a pile of greek returns in the NS that were pretty ragged out.

Interesting. The hang tag (RM1-Field) indicates it is a field grade rifle.

You have had an exceptional, almost unbelievable, experience ordering rack grade rifles unless they were "Special Rack" models with new barrels.

Is there an MS Word font and size that duplicates that?  I have a beater stock that I use at reenactments; a rack number would look cool.

Love those post-war M1 rifles.

Especially like the dark wood, too.
Link Posted: 10/9/2020 2:50:07 PM EST
The M1 is a really excellent stopper. Get yourself a bandolier of clips and you aren’t unarmed, even today.

You got a good one. And it might well shoot as good or better than a SG.  

You just need to get it out to the range and pound about 40-60 rds through it. First clips to get it zeroed, the remainder to see what sort of accuracy you can expect.  200-yds is the minimum distance to vet for average M1 groups.

The Nimrods who call a 2" group @ 50-yds 'good enough' are just Sunday afternoon plinkers. They're not serious M1 shooters for whom practical accuracy matters.

My service grade came with TE of 2 and MW of 1. The field grade I ordered a couple years later had the same numbers in reverse, and does indeed shoot slightly better groups than my service grade.

With those barrel numbers it had to have been downgraded for cosmetic reasons alone. Very worn metal finish, very dark stock. I should really put some real work into a full strip and re-oil and see what I end up with.

They didn’t used to.  Glad they do at the moment.   I remember some really poorly made greek replacement wood.  I got one given to me for ptactice to glass bed but it was even a bit Fouled up for that, mis cut and would let the clip latch pin walk.

I haven't seen rack grades(other than sniper variants, the new rack specials and IHCs) listed for mail order for years-maybe even since the days of the Greek returns.

I'm jealous, excellent score!

If one was to order their first.  Is now a good time or should I wait for this covid stuff to die down?  Their site says more will become available after things settle down.

The best bet in terms of bang for the buck is available right now. The rack grade special for $650. Pitting on the receiver, new barrel. Receiver is reparked.

Service grade IHCs are available too, as well as the regular $750 service grade. The only reason to wait is wanting something specific that is currently sold out.

It wasn’t a rack grade, which makes this thread more believable.

I have had good luck lately at the CMP store in Anniston. I scored a 3.6mil SA all correct except for an IHC trigger group a month ago. Saturday, I snagged a 2.4mil SA 60s refurb and a 280k SA LEAD refurb that looked unfired since refurb. They even have 1917 Enfield rifles in stock. I picked up a Winchester 1917 in February.

Another person on the CMP forum just got the email from a September order, and his card was charged very shortly after that.

They have been busy as hell. The South Store has been selling ammo like it is going out of business. Folks have been in line 1.5hr before opening for rifles and ammo.

Thank you. It's my first time ordering from CMP. After reading the forum over there, they said your first order could take longer to vet your application and supporting documents.

Nope. I'm estimating another week or two before any progress. The timeline thread on the CMP forum, guys are getting confirmation emails for orders in mid to late October.

They charged my card on 12/2, for an order they received on 10/1 for a service grade.  Just got the text from fedex that something was coming my way.  No email from CMP so I went to check the estore and saw status was changed to shipped.  Looks like mine is a Springfield 2.7 mil serial number.  Fedex scheduled delivery says it should be here tomorrow.
