How is everyone's order doing? Mine went in on the 18th of March for a RG Greek H&R M1. I got an acknowledgement and order number on the 31st. Order is still open, and no shipping date yet.

I thought if we had a thread to keep track, people might get an idea of when theirs might ship.
So, post your dates, grades, and manufacuture!

I mailed my order on March 16th, and the order acknowledgment is dated the 29th. No ship date yet. H&R Greek rack grade.

I've been checking the E-store for a ship date several times a day.

Well shooooooooot, that isn't good. I thought the Greek HRAs were the ones that were getting shipped out so quickly? Dang. Maybe a longer wait than I had imagined.

I wonder why I haven't gotten a remark like that? You would think that they would post something like that on the pending order at the e-store? I feel neglected.

Mine is charged on my credit card and the status in now "processing"! When I got my SG, it shipped the day after it was charged (I had to look at the old statements), so hopefully I will have it soon.

The backorder notation was on the invoice for the ammo, not the rifle. Ammo and rifles ordered together are listed under seperate invoices due to the different shipping methods. I bet it was noted for control purposes or something rather than to advise of an actual backorder on the rifle. I think they are shipping them as fast as they grade them and get them out the door.

Update for me! The Greek is here this morning at about 930! WOO HOO. Metal looks good to me, the wood is mismatched but actually isn't as bad as I thought it might be. Now it is time to start cleaning.

Since mine will probably reach me first, it's too bad we didn't work out a deal where I take delivery of both of our rifles, and send you one of them...After I inspect both, of course...

Good for you......maybe good for me/maybe not. You watch; I'm leaving on Thurs and won't be back until Sat. night. My wife will be thrilled when she sees mine show up. I'm hoping mine won't ship now, at least until next Monday.

Got mine, it's got a thin coating of cosmolene and mismatched wood, but the wood itself is in good shape, and the fit of the stock to the action is very tight, so I will probably leave it until I get a new walnut stock for cosmetic reasons. I cleaned out the barrel and the rifling is pretty sharp, although I have no way of measuring throat and muzzle erosion. I'll have to wait until I get to the range to see what kind of shape it's in. Except for the bands on the handguards, the finish is 98%! For a Greek racker, I think I got a great deal-now to see how it shoots clean the cosmo off.

Well shoot! Status is now "Editing"

My rifles status is changing. My credit card has been charged. They will probably ship tomorrow.

Crap; I'm going to be gone until Sat night. My wife wouldn't normally care, but this last month was a tight son of a bitch. She is not going to be happy. I need a story. We have a "don't ask, don't tell" policy about gun buys at my house. I'll just tell her that I spent the rest of my AR build money on it.

Edited to add:
Status now ="processing"

I'm excited.......and afraid

Still no change.

THIS IS BULLSHIT!!



Ours both posted on the 31st. I"ll bet yours will start processing tomorrow. Except for a few weird exceptions, this thread has shown a pretty good pattern. Guys that got their rifles processed two days ago, had their orders posted on the 29th, so I'm guessing your day will be tomorrow. Heck, they both might ship tomorrow. Mine is still "processing", and no shipping date has been announced yet. They will probably go out the same day.

If it makes you feel any better, my "next day air" from Fedex will probably(normally) take two days, and we will get them the same time. I live in BFE.

The really good news is I told my wife, and she is not pissed! She even knew what an M1 was when I told her what was coming. I love her.

Hate to rub it in Mbsk01, but I mailed my order for a Greek HRA SG on 4/8. Website shows its shipped. Maybe they are a little backed up on RGs since it looks like that is what most folks ordered. I expected at least a month. Hell, I don't even have any ammo or clips yet.

My Rack Grade HRA Greeks, ordered on 3/18, posted on estore 3/31, arived Friday 4/22.....while I was gone. They look great; better than I expected! One has a mis-matched front handguard that looks a little oversized, and new, but the stocks look great! The metal looks about 80%. The barrels are dated 11-54, and 4-55. I'll post picts later. I'm so excited!

Got my Greek HRA SG baby today. Took it home at lunch to give it the once over. So far so great!

The HG's are like new and need to be dulled down a bit with some BLO and the stock has minor dings, a good cleaning and fresh BLO should produce good results. Plus make it and the HG's wood a closer color match. The finish on all the metal parts is 90% or better. Just a little wear on the HRA bolt and the HRA GC plug, that's it!

The reciever has either never been fired, or never been fired post new-parker job. I mean zero wear (all the pristine finish is still there) in the Op Bolt groove!! Can this be? The butt-plate is worn.

I'll be cleaning the everthing tonight and will worry about stock later.

Thanks CMP for the new obession!

Wow, I didn't expect this! Thanks CMP!!!

Took it down last night. Stripped, degreased, regreased, sanded and BLO'd and couldn't be happier.
Everything was HRA on this SG Greek...Trigger assy (trigger and hammer), op rod, bolt, sites, gc plug. The s/n matches the barrel production date of 05-55.

The stock cleaned up nicely. I started with warm water, Murphy's Oil Soap and a Scotchbrite pad to remove the gunk. Step sanded from 100 to 400 grit and BLO'd it. Came out nice, rrreal nice. The scrathes came out, and the minor dings are even less noticable. The HG's are old, but in new condition / newer then the stock and are a shade lighter. They were not sanded and had something rubbed into them. I hit them with some 220 grit to remove the roughness and BLO's them. I can't see doing anything further, everything is great! Everything locks up tight!

So other then money, what's the difference between what I got, a SG and the CG ?

Crap, now I need to buy another one..or two

Starting the timer on my order. Mailed in the order form on Monday for a Service Grade H&R Greek and a Remington M1903A3. We'll see how long it takes.

A question for all you cosmoline-removal pros. One of the methods I've seen involves melting the cosmoline off using various means. Anyone try wrapping the rifle in an old sheet and sticking it in the attic crawlspace for a few weeks? Seems like the temperature in the attic in summer should be enough to melt most of the cosmoline off and make the final clean-up a bit easier. Any thoughts?
