CMP stickies?

I tried to join the CMP forum but it's taking some time, or I would have asked there.

I am getting 4 SG's(Jumping in with both feet).

Requesting by priority: Tiger Stripe, LEAD, USGI WWII

Comments or suggestions appreciated.

Good luck with the "stickies", but don't hold your breath. They don't have time to go digging thru M1s to find what you "request". They may look at a couple in the crate that are next, but that's about it.

Sticky notes are a funny thing. There is no harm in asking for what you want, but you will most likely get what they have their hands on at the time.

Many Service Grades are coming through now with new CMP wood, not all, but many. When CMP talks about "Luck of the Draw", that is really the truth.

My understanding is that as they open crates of M-1 Garands, they go through them, check them for function and safety and often put new wood on them. Some need replacement parts, or maybe a new barrel.

The bigger issue here is that they have been processing an enormous amount of rifles in the last couple of years and in my humble opinion, I do not think that they have the time to hand pick and choose which rifles go out.

In any case, you may get lucky, but you most likely will not be disappointed.

Thanks from Rich D

The"only" one of your requests that may get looked at is the WWII serial receiver.
If they had to take time to honor everyones requests ,especially LEAD and tiger stripped wood they never would get any rifles out .

So, I guess it can't hurt to ask, but I won't hold my breath. Thanks for the replies.

I think you would be better off asking for realistic requests, WWII receiver and USGI wood.

Good luck, CMP is great but luck of the draw pretty much tells the story.

Rocket launcher? I could put up with a short wait! Where do I stock up on ammo?

Here's an update on my CMP rifle order. They got my order on the 29th, along with 300 other orders. As I called and left a message that I wanted to change my order, they called today. My order now shows on the E-store. I asked for tiger stripe, Lead or USGI WWII, and she said if they saw it on the pallet, they would try and meet my requests. I am sure I will be happy either way.

Thanks from Dougboffl
