All Bush's fault.

Edited to add, this means all the shitbags that buy CMP Garands just to sell at gunshows will now have to raise their prices in turn. Damn, this capitalism shit sure works to screw up my gun buying.

Oh yeah, why is it that K-31's, which cost a for-profit importer a good bit of coin to buy and have shipped here, through alot of paperwork and hassle, cost $90 even tho they are wonderful guns and made in relatively small numbers - yet these Garands (made in the millions) that WE PAID FOR, and are being returned from lend-lease, and are being sold to us by the CMP to further marksmanship and allow us a "cheap" rifle towards that goal cost $500+?????

Anyone care to hazard a guess?

You know that's exactly what my wife said, then I reminded her of her dozens of pairs of shoes.

you still suck. tell me you haven't put the 350 conversion in it (or larger), because then you would really suck.




What in the name of ZEUS' BUTTHOLE does this have to do with the price of Garands going up???

Hijackers!!!

I guess I will put off the Eotech and the Ipod and get my Garand. I have been alagible for almost a year now.

I will probly get a rack grade or a service grade. Im working at MidwayUSA now so I can get parts for cheap.

yep one of the USGI rack grades.
Get the new CMP furnature, rebarrel it, respring it and repark it.
It will be as good as new.
