I ordered my first m1a through my school a month ago and it is being sent this week! I am getting the loaded with carbon steel bbl and walnut stock. I am tickled shitless. I have been wanting this thing so bad for so long.
My buddy ordered one also but it came with a fiberglass stock because he bought a mcmillan so I am getting his fiberglass stock for a realy good deal. I plan on painting the fiberglass stock in snow camo(I'm in Colorado). Well, just had to tell somebody so thanks for listening. I feel bad for my poor ars. They wont be watching tv with me for a while until I bond with my springfield. Next I will order a trp 1911 to go with it.
eta. I just got my first Garand a couple weeks ago. It's an old Sa. I traded a bushmaster upper, a stock and some mags. Pretty sweet deal. What a great month!
