Folks, When I decided at this late date to purchase a M1 Garand, sight unseen, I expected a beat up, picked over relic that would have to be rebuilt from scratch. I was pleasantly surprised when I received my 1944 Springfield special field model this week. Except for some pitting on the gas tube, it looks like it was just manufactured, perhaps even better. The walnut grain was beautiful.As specified, the barrel was new, but the butt plate and some other parts appeared new. The remainder were rephosphated and looked good as new. I have not had the opportunity to fire it, but with the obvious quality workmanship, I expect no problem. I hate to fire it because it is quite beautiful. I was also pleased that I received a wartime Springfield model. That was unexpected. Thank all at CMP who work on this program for a job well done. Regards Ronald M. (Former Ordnance Officer), March 7, 2017
