New to me M1 Garand on the way. PICS!

I just snagged what I think was a pretty good deal on an auction site. GI Springfield M1 with 1-44 dated receiver, new Criterion barrel and new nicely matching walnut stock, ie., a CMP rifle. Parts are mixie matchie, typical. I say its a good deal for the fact it comes with all the CMP stuff including paperwork and the green case, but also nearly 400 rounds of ball ammo, about 70 clips, two ammo cans and some cloth bandoleers, plus free shipping for the whole lot. I will of course post some pics when it arrives, probably week after next. I have a perfectly good shooting H&R DCM rifle but it really should have a safe mate right?

Look forward to a range report once you have a chance to warm it up.

Also made a real good snag on GB for some Fed 168gr Match ammo for it. Got 200 rounds for $183 shipped! That is only 91.5 cents per round, or $18.30 per box, about half the going rate. Best price I could find on it was Lucky Gunner at about $33 per box. Gotta feed the M1's and the 03A3!

You got that right. They get lonely by themselves and are happy and multiply once you get a pair.

The biggest problem with M1's is that one is never enough.

Rifle came today, it looks great. Dry as a bone so lubing up. Unfortunately the ammo is all KA stamped, Korean corrosive I gather. Lots of clips to sort thru. I guess I will keep the ammo for last stand or shoot it in my 03A3, not gonna soil a new barreled M1 with it! Pics later.

I would do a detail strip clean and lube in case the previous owner fired corrosive ammo through it and didnt do a thorough cleaning.
