It took me 2 weeks to get all the necessary paperwork together for my CMP packet, but I finally got it completed today and sent it off by FedEx Priority Overnight for a CMP Service Grade M1 Garand. I requested a WW2 era serial number from either 1943 or 1944 and I also bought a case of the Greek .30-06 with 768 rounds already installed on enbloc clips.

Does anyone know how long it usually takes for CMP to contact or e-mail me letting me know they received it and have begun processing it?

I can't wait

The CMP is swamped with orders for the IHC's and WRA's right now.. it may take 2 weeks for them to get to your order and enter it and let you know they got it...You probably will get the ammo 1 week after they get your order entered.

Thanks.

Also, I didn't realize CMP had a location in Alabama. The order form said to send my packet to Anniston, AL... but I always thought CMP was in Ohio.

You'll get an email stating that your order is being processed and not to contact them until after 21 days.

My first Garand came to me 5 days after I got that email, the second one took 33 days....

Your rifle will be sent from the Anniston facility.

Make sure you detail strip ther rifle when you get it. CMP has been using a pressure washer or steam genny to clean the rifles lately. They sent out an email to notify people to look for corrosion esp under the rear sight assy.

Enjoy your piece of history, it will arrive soon.

It may just be the Greek rifles, I did see several posts over at jouster wher folks found rust under the sight cover.

I would rather get one like you received.

here is what CMP said:


RUSTY PINIONS. Recently there have been a few reports of surface rust on
rear sight elevating pinions and on the adjustment notches on the
receiver. This is just a reminder to check and properly clean these areas.
Many of the rifles we have received were coated in heavy preservative and
cosmoline. This preservative is removed using hot water. Even though the
areas are dried and a light coat of oil is applied after cleaning, rust
may still form. We recommend that everyone who has purchased Garands from
the CMP recently check these areas and clean and preserve as necessary.

I can't wait hr


It took a week to the day after USPS delivery confirmation stated the envelope had arrived in Anniston (January 12), until I received the order confirmation request email on 19 January. I just received a second email on 24 January stating that they have begun processing my order. From here until delivery day is anyone's guess, but I imagine it will be any day now.

FedEx attempted delivery this past Friday. I wasn't home so I went and picked them up at the facility yesterday afternoon. The entire process from the time I dropped the order in the mail, until receipt was just over two weeks. Right in line with what lots of others have experienced. Good luck!

I mailed mine on 12/30/05 and they got it on 1/5/06. As of today my service grade Garand ship date is still "to be determined".
I'm getting antsy but they said it might be the end of Feb before they start shipping
I did get my 2 cases of the greek 768 count ammo though. All I need is a gun.

Probably because in practice it was a bad idea to do that without the ability to focus on an individual rifle like say a private or individual gun owner would be able to.

Ought to be about two weeks to go until the fun begins. I've got the field grade completely disassembled following an afternoon of cleaning and cosmoline removal. Taking a break and letting the CLP soak in for a while before putting it back together. Out of curiosity, what part of Florida are you in?

Post hijack:
Does anyone keep the cloth bandoleers that come with the surplus ammo?

I'm in South Florida... plan to shoot my Garand at the Markham Park range.

It's been about 2 weeks now and I still haven't heard anything from CMP, no phone call, e-mail confirmation, anything. Hopefully i'll hear from them sometime this week!
