CMP select grade M1

Hi
I am on the verge of ordering an CMP select grade M1. What I was wondering is has anyone ordered one of these and what condition was it in. The CMP site rate's these as excellent. The picture look's great.
Thank's
Greg

Select grade? You mean service grade right?

Go for it!!!

I've bought service grade and "special" grade and my service grade Garands were as "minty" as the "special" grade.

Here is a link that explains the difference in CMP grading:

Be careful of "Garanditis" (meaning once you buy one, you'll buy another and another and ...)

Hi
Thank's for the reply. CMP has a new rating of select grade. I just happened to be browsing their site and was looking at the M1s. I saw the select grade picture and decided to buy one. They are $989.00.
I was looking to buy an M1a as that is what I carried in Nam,but I did fire some M1s that the ARVN carried and really liked them.

Those have new commercial barrels and are built by the folks at a local gun shop in affiliation with the CMP. All parts are of course used but refinished, and a new commercial stock is used.

question

Hi
Does anyone know of a good scope and mount for the M1. The one's I have seen mount to the side of the reciever and not on top of the barrell. Would like one that mount's over the barrell. Filled out the paper work and will order the M1 tomorrow.
Thank's
Greg

The CMP sells a Amegaranges Scout Mount just for the M1. Should be on their e-store list.

Greg,

Like jbrooks said, you'll need to use one specific to the Garand because of how the enblocs (clips) are loaded (from the top); therefore, centered over the receiver won't work...

I bought the one from the CMP e-store, but haven't mounted it and do not have a scope bought yet.

It fits perfectly, and is very solid. It does alter the balance of the rifle, but is well worth it. :)

My bad Greg - you said "barrel" and not receiver as far as mount location - I don't know any options (if any) for barrel mounting...

Maybe jbrooks knows?

Fulton Armory (FA) has upper hand guards that are used for mounting a scope. The material is aluminum they are bout $150.00 FA is one place, but there are others.

Just wait for the service grades to come back and you wont be disappointed.

Back in the day the CMP did sell select grades. I have one that is a mid 60's rebuild. Select grades were just nicer service grades with better barrels but didn't have matching parts which were generally collector grade.

There has been a fair spread in the service grades. From virtually unfired (non matching parts) to guns that fit the SG description. I often wonder why they got rid of the Select grade.

later check

Hi
Checked out the Fulton site and the mount look's interesting. Tried to get in the e store but I don't have a customer number yet so guess I will have to wait till I get the M1 so I can check it out. Again Thank's for the information.

I have several M1's set up using the AmegaRanges scout mount which is the one once sold by CMP. I don't think they have carried them for a while now. They work great. You can order one from tjgeneralstore.com. They carry two different types, the AmagaRanges, which is what CMP used, and one made by UltiMak which is a little more low profile.
