I haven't been there in over a year. Getting ready to make a trip down there in the next week or two.

Has anybody been there recently? If so, how are the Winchesters looking?

TIA!

There has to be some South Store shoppers out there somewhere.

I was there in September, and it was great al around!!!!

I was there last Thursday. There were a few "gems" in the rack/field grade, mainly barrel wear and so-so wood. Anything with a Winnie barrel is shot-out and measures +5 on the muzzle.

You should be able to find something you like, be sure to look at everyone of them!

Thanks!

I never leave the South Store without something and I'm always happy with what I buy.

I gotta go down there again some time; I have the itching to get another Garand, maybe a Springfield and some barrels.

Check the CMP forums. For the South STore, it is common for there to be a store update on a daily basis from someone who went there. It is rare that 2-3 days go by without an update.

I was there in September, and picked up an HRA Service Grade, and it shoots like a dream. I also SHOULD have picked up a SA SG that I had my hands on, but I was already set on the HRA, and I failed the basic "get both" axiom.

If you are not looking for historic significance, the HRA SGs are great. I wanted HRA specifically because that is what my Dad remembers having in ROTC.

Good luck,

The Winchesters are dissapointing , most of them have new commercial stocks with NOS USGI barrels installed by CMP armorers.
