A Garand is definitely on my list. Yours is a beaut. I hope you don't mind if I covet it until I get my own.

I had hoped to acquire an M1 from CMP. On a drive to Chicago, I even made a recon pitstop at Camp Perry. I joined DCFS (a SEPA range) a few years ago, partly because they were a CMP affiliate. In the past year or so DCFS appears to have been dropped from CMP's list. Gah. Set back. Needless to say, I am a bit annoyed with DCFS. And the dream goes on.

M1 Garand

Beautiful rifle,
You know she is not officially yours until you put her in bed with you tonight. Just a warning if you wake up hugging the rifle and not the wife there will be some explaining to do.

Thanks from ColdWarPigGnR

You can join the Garand Collectors Ass. right at the south store which meets the requirement of belonging to an affiliate club.

I shoot at DCFS.

If you participate in a high power match there, it fulfills the marksmanship requirement for CMP.

I joined The Garand Collectors Ass. to purchase from CMP. Once I got everything in order, CMP was sold out of the special grades........
So I bought this one at the Oaks Gun show in Oct. from a local vendor, that had the best Garands at the show. I have their info if you are interested.

They took it all apart, walk you through assembly, disassembly, etc.

Thanks for the tip on the Garand Collectors' Association. I hadn't known about that.

You are correct about the high power match as a qualifier. I had forgotten about the that. My original plan was 10 boxes of 12ga. at table-trap plus a range officer's signature testifying that I had shot the 200 rounds. I only had the shotgun when I originally joined DCFS.

I still hope to go the CMP route but I wouldn't mind your vendor's info as a back up. Considering how often and how long CMP has been sold out, that may become the best option in the end. I have an M14 barreled-receiver to keep me busy for the time being. A Garand as next on the list.

Again, your Garand is the cat's pajamas. I hope it's as fun as it looks.
