Received a very nice SA GI Field Grade today, One of the nicest cond M1's I have gotten from the CMP excluding 3-4 fresh arsenal rebuild SG's. Rifle is a 5.9 mil SA with a LMR 1-53 barrel with TE 2.2 and exc muzzle. HRA trigger groub with WRA Hammer, HRA gas cyl and wide HRA front site, D 35382 SA op-rod, -17 SA B4A bolt. IHC elev knob ( cracked ) / DRC wind. Very nice wood with no cracks and minimal dents. LOTD was good to me this time..

Man, that thing's pretty. I've really been thinking about getting one, but I just don't know if I wanna roll the dice-it'll probably be the only Garand I get for the foreseeable future and I don't want to blow the money on a beater, even tho it's a deal. But man-that thing's pretty!

VERY nice! So is the SG still considered to be the "best bet" of getting a "shooter"? I haven't ordered any (yet) since the new grading system. Looking at a SG HRA Greek.

Very, very nice! I just got back from the Ohio North Store and the Rack, Field, and Service grade M1s were all junk. Ratty wood and the best barrels being 3+. There were some beautiful Correct grades though.

That's disappointing to hear, but I'm sure the inventory has been picked over heavily recently with the national matches going on up there.

ETA: That Garand up top looks beautiful! Nice score! (Goes off to find CMP order form.....)
