Here is my M1 I just received today, my order has been open since 12/21/05.





Do I need to do anything special when I clean the stock to keep this cartouche intact? It looks great, and at first glance it appears the bore is in great shape. I'll just need to replace the upper handguard with a matching one.

my Father and I recently picked up a CMP M1 SA off the EE, we're more than happy.

Since we're asking, how does one go about cleaning up the stock? I don't want to refinish it in any way, just clean and preserve. sudsy dishsoap water and then BLO?

Thanks and I apologize if this is an old topic



If it isn't covered in cosmoline try Murphy's Oil Soap or Liquid Gold. Either should do a good job of gently cleaning the grime without stripping any finish on it.
BLO is the traditional method, but try using Tung Oil Finish instead. It is still the service appearance without the hassle of constantly applying BLO.HERE is a link to a very interesting article on that subject.

HTH,
Jim

Looks good, I'm waiting for my GCA membership to get here and to CMP and I'm getting a service grade also. Can't wait!

Nice looking rifle!

Question for the masses.... I thought if you had a C&R, you didn't need to have a club membership? Is that true for CMP or does anyone know? The CMP site gives the impression (to me). But the actual order form says there is no exception to the club rule.

Anyone know for sure or should I contact CMP?
I wouldn't mind getting one of the Garands...even one of the Greek loaned ones.

I think you still have to have proof of membership, just not proof of participation in a shooting activity. A c&r takes the place of that requirement.

You must belong to either a qualifying club or the Garand Collectors Association .
The C&RFFL can be use instead of shooting a qualifying match.

Or if you are active duty or retired military. If you are one of the above you automatically qualify.
