Nice job sneaking that CQBR in there

Only pic that I have atm, true potato style.  The stock has a lot of wear which I absolutely love.

TY-webb.  It certainly wont hurt to put in a ported gas plug.  I use the one from garandgear.  It allows you to shoot any 30.06.  If you run out of ammo and want to shoot, you can grab some winchester from walmart.  It opens up your options.  I still mainly shoot M2 ball, but I like knowing I can shoot anything.  
I would say that from the CMP the rifle is SAFE.  But it may not function perfectly.  The springs are sometimes too old.  An easy fix is to also grab a spring kit form garandgear and install all of them.  It lets you get familiar with the rifle at the same time.  I got mine in january and was having issues.....replaced all the springs and its running fantastic now.

Good luck!

Thanks man!  Yours is looking very nice.  Our stocks look pretty similar.
And yes the CQBR's and MK18's are attention whores, no doubt about it
Mines a 1.7m SA receiver with original barrel.  It took mine a week from submitting to receiving a few months ago, so that was NICE!

The M1 has grown to be my FAVORITE rifle, period!  
If you have any issues with yours, just replace all of the springs.  Almost a guarantee that will take care of most problems.  And even if you don't have any issue, never a bad idea to replace old springs.

Right on, I love the dark finish.  That's lucky! I just missed ordering when the lead-time was very short and I ordered it when they got in all the IHC's, so I'm sure that bogged down their speed with the load of orders for those.

Haha yeah I'm waiting on my stamp now for a cqbr, I feel like I live in that damn thread

Awesome I'm really looking forward to it.  I will probably order springs just to have even if it runs like a champ.  I'm on the fence about the gas plug but will most likely get that also even if I don't install it right away.

Yea Im sure they got slammed when they had the IHC's!
Yep that thread is where Im usually hanging out too haha
The garandgear plug is just plug n play, screw it in and your all set, no adjustments needed. And then if you happen to run any different 30.06 ammo your safe!  Cheap insurance, and keeps all options open!

Getting ready to order by the end of the month. I was on the CMP site trying to see how to join to satisfy the membership or affiliate requirement but can't find out where.

I thought you could join for $25? Any help is appreciated!

Well, you might have a little bit of a choice. With mail order, you get the next one on the rack in the grade you ordered. If you go to one of the stores, you can pick between several.

Check out the CMP forums to get an idea of what may be in stock in the stores.

This is true, but keep in mind that if you get a rifle at the store you will pay sales tax as well (which is 7% for the CMP North Store in Port Clinton, OH and 10% at the CMP South Store in Anniston, AL).  You cannot pick one out at the store and then have it shipped out of state to dodge the sales tax.
I bought one from CMP North.  I just considered the sales tax my "Best of 5 All of 'Em Handpick" fee.  Plus, I'd get nailed with sales tax no matter what since I'm an Ohio resident.

If there's something that's very important to you (like a serial number in a certain range), you're going to have to try your luck at the store.  If you're just looking for a representative example in a certain broad grade, mail is fine and you can save yourself the sales tax (assuming that you're not an Ohio or Alabama resident).

So, I'm going to a wedding in Mississippi next month and the CMP South store is only a 45 minute detour for the trip. I've put off buying a Garand for the longest time, and now is probably the time to get one rather than later. Do the stores have the same selection as those online? Do I just need to bring my club membership card, passport, driver's license, and CHP? Do they take credit cards? Can I walk in and walk out with one, or do they ship from there? (I see that was answered above) Think they might have a rack grade lying around in a corner someone forgot about?

Sorry for the dumb questions; just want to make sure I'm prepared.

They haven't had rack grades in a while, but you may find a field grade.  The inventory at the store is VERY slim, but there are a few things that show up in the store that you can't order through the mail.  These tend to be higher priced items like collector/correct/1903 and 6 million.  There probably won't be any service grade rifles either.  Get there at opening and have fun!

Thanks for the great post.  I just purchased my first Garand.  The other rifle in the photos is a minty Yugo Mauser

Thanks for the info Dog 1.
Years ago I bought some Garand receivers from CMP - they were refinished and no pitting - almost ne I'd saw.
For some time I have been buying parts here in the to rebuild the 1942 to "new" - all the parts except the barrel and stock should match the S/N build date. I'm getting closer and closer. I know it is not the most economical approach or even a good financial investment, but it will in a certain way be my "original" 1942 Garand.
PS - I'd love a Shuff's Mini-G in 308!

Have you found a Type 1 lock bar rear sight yet? Those are kinda hard to come across and when you do very pricey. Last one I saw went for over $600

Correction it's a Sept 1941 Receiver (I also have a June 1944). The '41 has a flush nut (short pinion, checkered knobs). I have not been able to find NOS or used complete rear sights for either.
I may need to buy a new one (repros and semi-repros available) to complete the build and keep on looking.
Link Posted: 5/5/2017 5:39:55 PM EST
[Last Edit: 5/5/2017 5:43:49 PM EST by M1G]
You will never find correct NOS rear sights for either rifle. The 1941 rifle uses a Flush Nut sight, slightly easier to find but almost as expensive. Going to be in the $550 range
This is a flush nut




The stock would also hurt your pocket, one in decent condition with light SA/GHS is going to run around $375 . One in very good condition with strong cartouche $550 plus

You are picking a rifle that would be very expensive to correct. Try a late WWII, it wont hurt so bad:)
If you need any help or advice on your builds feel free to PM me

Be careful if buying from overseas vendor. Its illegal to buy USGI parts from another country unless you have a Importer on this end. They may and can get confiscated in customs and you can get yourself into some trouble. Yes E-Bay sellers do it all the time but......... its the law

If I have to purchase a new barrel that is fine but would love to have a matching serial number to that caliper.

A lot of good info in this thread, figure it wont hurt to ask some questions:

1: Can you simply email the CMP all of your eligibility requirements, like CCW permit, birth cert, drivers license, etc?
-Understand they require you MAIL in forms 1A, 2A, 3A (originals with "wet ink" signatures).

2: How long does it normally take for the GCA to mail out membership info?

3: Is this a 'bad time' to be ordering things with the CMP?
-reading a few stories about how backed up they are with orders, being shut down cuz 'rona, etc...


I'm just super excited to be finally getting around to owning one of these MUST HAVE rifles that's been on my list for a LONG TIME.

Just never got around to getting one, kept getting into other things, but now's the time. Life's short, politicians don't make it easier, and I want to get one now while they still seem to be available for a fair rate.

I sent my packet in late October. Since then I have learned the envelopes I used don't stay closed very well after a day or 2. Im worried the packet didn't even make it and getting in touch with anyone at the CMP is near impossible.

Sent my packet 11/2/20.  Haven't heard a word yet, but seems that they are starting to process orders around that time period.  The CMP must have gotten swamped with orders from August through November.  Patiently waiting.  Three months or more seems to be the wait right now.

I sent my packet in on 12/12/2020 and am hoping to have mine by this summer....


Update: I received an email yesterday (2/23/21) saying that my packet was received on 12/16/20. It seems that they are so backed up that it is taking them around 9 weeks to process their received mail.

Update #2: I received my shipping notification today (3/5/21), delivery is scheduled for Monday!
Ammo is still an open order since they are completely sold out.
