So, all of Fluffy's M1Garand pic threads have finally propelled me over the precipice, as it were.
Got the cash together and sent paperwork for a .308 Special last Thursday.
They should have received it Monday.
Any idea how long till I hear from them?

This will be my first Garand, and it will be in .308 because I have lots of .308 rifles and ammo and not a single, solitary .30-06.
Spare me your comments of sacrilege. The Navy had .308 Garands and all that.

I have 50 clips already loaded in anticipation, and just ordered a Dutch M5 bayonet off Ebay - hey, it was like new and cheap.
I'll find an M1942 one later.

Do I go with a repro M1910/1923 style cartridge belt?
http://thecmp.org/training-tech/armorers-corner/garand-cartridge-belts/
or do I go with something new, like the Olongapo Outfitters one?
http://olongapooutfitters.com/equipment-and-gear/garand-cartridge-belt/

Now, post pics of your CMP rifles, bayonets and other assorted M1 goodies to satiate my impatience.
I want to shoot this thing for my annual rifle qual in June...

Years of practice.

Oil finishes are pretty easy, they just take lots of time to do correctly. Refinishing a clean M1 stock with pure Tung oil can take six weeks.

I've been lucky in that I bought most of my rifles in-person, and I'm picky about starting with good furniture - I like to find stocks with striping or interesting grain variation, but I've done some new stocks, too. These were both new CMP wood, the first walnut finished with Tung oil:



and an unfinished birch set from the CMP that got a Pine Tar / linseed oil finish:



This was a new old stock 1903 stock set that probably has ten or twelve hand-rubbed coats of Tung oil:



I really like working on my rifles.

Now those are "real" nice Garands, thanks for posting
Link Posted: 2/26/2016 8:54:53 AM EDT
Look under sales on the CMP site, they still have original bayonets for sale.
Link Posted: 3/3/2016 3:27:58 AM EDT
Been 2 weeks. Hadn't heard anything, but wanted to find out how backed up they are/see if my paperwork made it vs. got shredded by the USPS,
so I wrote an email Tuesday, and heard back today.
My paperwork has arrived, they are backlogged, and they'll send me an email when they get to it.


The Danish bayonet arrived all oily and beautiful.

This whole waiting thing is the reason I have no NFA goodies.
I am by nature too impatient/ADD/fickle, and I have already moved on to looking at an M1A vs FAL for the next toy.

I've always wanted an FAL just because the Rhodesian Army "Be a Man among Men" poster makes me feel inadequate without one.
I think I must have the right arm of the free world, don't you?

But I need the M1A because I have 7 M1A mags in the safe.

So post pics of your Garands, M1A's and FN FALs
Or maybe a G3 clone?
A PTR or Springfield SAR8?
Decisions, decisions...

Wow. Three more beauties.

Guess my first questions would be how do you clean them up? My CMP random pick by them stock is pretty grungy, and hasa number of gouges. Am I better off just ordering new furniture?

I ordered a 308 CMP Special about a month ago, still waiting eagerly for it to ship. I've already got a reproduction cleaning kit for the stock, a gas wrench, 25 clips, plus a crate of German boxer-primed surplus 308. I don't even own a 308 yet.

I'm thinking about getting a Holbrook device so I can top-load it without sending clips into the mud, but I think I'm going to wait until I shoot it like God and Garand intended.

I almost got one of those the other day. I have a bayonet and haven't taken time to figure out what type I have, as I would want a different one than what I got.

Mine came from ebay years ago.

This will be new stock, new bbl, and either new or refinished parts.

My next CMP Garand will need to be all original/matching, or as close to it as possible.

Make your own. Put an empty enbloc in the rifle. Close action. Remove stock. Take a pencil and mark the clip along the bottom of the receiver. Reassemble rifle, eject clip. Take a dremel and cut clip along the lines you drew. bend the bottom part out slightly. Carefully reinsert the clip until the tabs lock it in. Now you have a Garand that loads like any blind-magazine rifle. Total expense-one $1 clip(if you already have the dremel).

4 weeks today and no word from CMP land.
I am disappoint.

Last week I ordered 50 more clips from the CMP and this week loaded them up in a ritual ceremony
hoping that the Garand Diety would look favorably upon me and send me an email from the powers that be.
But, alas, such was not to be.

I even stacked them in a .30 cal ammo can, and then a .50 can.
Seems 36 will fill a .30 can nicely in 3 rows of 12
and 72 will fit in a .50 with some interweaving,
being .308, it's a little shorter.
It amused me for a few minutes in between checking my email for a CMP notice.

Curse my procrastination.
Why did I wait to send paperwork till just after they were flooded with M1 Carbine orders?...
I did this to myself, I know, but since "dindonuthin" is the norm these days amongst the hipsters,
I shall blame others and feel blameless myself.

Maybe I should start a protest movement entitled "Old Rifles Matter"
That may use up some of the time...
Never mind, it's raining outside.
I think I'll go check all the clips again and make sure that the top round is on the right..

I think mine took a little longer than 30 days. Maybe 6 weeks? And then I got a call that I had not gotten my paperwork notarized . The stamp just wasn't at the very bottom. Once that was sorted out they shipped within a few days.

If it makes you feel any better, I shot mine for the first time this weekend. Hitting 6" plates at 200 yds is no problem. To save you the blood, the bolt closes as soon as you put the clip in .

Nothing.

No email, no order number, no nothing!

Where's my Garand?

I feel unloved and neglected.

I feel like I'm the only kid in school without the latest, coolest must-have brand of whatever.

Fluffy has 87 Garands.
It's not fair.
Where's my safe space?
I'm being triggered!
Where's Bernie to redistribute the unequal distribution of "PEWPEWPEWPEWPEWPEWPEWPEWPING" goodness?

Snail mailed for a .30-06 special about Feb 10.
Realized along the way that I misread about getting it notarized, so quickly got a fresh copy, got it notarized, and UPS'd it last Thursday....it'll arrive tomorrow (today, it's officially Tuesday already).
Got an email and a call the day after UPS'ing out the notarized page, from the CMP, politely telling me they got my order, but it's no bueno due to no notary.
You should hear from them any moment now.
My stupid mistake will only slow the order down not even a week. The CMP forums make it sound like the specials ship pretty quick...my ammo is already on the way.

Purchased my first CMP Garand, a 30-06 Special Grade, on Saturday at the North Store. Springfield Armory, 487,xxx puts it at February 1942.

A quick update for you.
Sent my order in about when you did, Feb 10th or 11th.
I'm a dope and didn't get the notary thing done, sent that by UPS last Thursday, they said that CMP would get it today.
Cmp calls and emails me the very next day, Friday, order received and is on hold until they get the notary, I tell them to be on the look out for today.
Just got an email from the CMP that the .30-06 special grade is on the way.

You should be doing the bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-Ping dance before you know it.

Ok, so now I need a WWII Jeep too.
Does the CMP sell those?
