I just wanted to thank All the staff at the CMP , for my recent purchase of my M1 grand rifle. After several years I took a leap of faith to order a service m1 grand. In my order I sent a sticky note requesting a Springfield pre: 1945 m1 with original USGI wood. The staff at the CMP went the extra mile to make sure I received what I requested. I received my Springfield m1 which according to records it was born December 1944.

After taking my rifle down and inspecting the parts I found it had all Springfield parts except the trigger housing and safety which were WRA, the rest of the trigger housing parts were Springfield. the throat and bore were 1+ , 3  The stock is original USGI with proof stamp and it is a Springfield. Which will make it a shooter.. 

The tag that came with the rifle had a Y on the back which indicates it was a Philippine return, I was really happy the I got a rile with a lot of history.

Rudolph A. Smith ,

I am extremely happy with this Field Grade M1 Garand.  Especially the original stock.  Please thank everyone responsible for this.  I will probably be ordering 2 more very soon.  I called earlier today and spoke to Ms. Tiffany and expressed my appreciation to everyone.  I have been a loyal customer with CMP for many years.  Your service and your products are second to nobody.  Mr. Mark Johnson is leading a great team and should be very proud of all his employees and the services they provide to youth and military organizations.

Thank you,



Arthur A. Quintero,

Renetta Crow,

Thank you to you & Sharon Mellon & The CMP team for my 1st ever M1 Garand!!!  I don’t know much about it yet, but am pleased to have it & it appears to look just great! My father served in WWII & I think he would be pleased, if he was still with us!

No response needed, just wanted you to know.



Robert R Bevans,

To Whom it May Concern:

I recently completed the CMP Advanced Maintenance Class (August 24-26 buddy class) with my father. It was something we had wanted to do for several years and were extremely pleased to have the opportunity to participate in this year.

I wanted to take a moment to let everyone at the CMP know (particularly those involved in organizing, preparing, and teaching the course) that it was an absolutely fantastic experience! I would like to specifically single out Chris Hord, Chris Knott, and Jeremy Coppock. Both Mr. Hord and Mr. Knott displayed a complete mastery of the rifle and class material. More importantly, they possessed the capability to effectively explain complex and potentially confusing principles in an accessible way for someone like myself with minimal experience in any serious gun-smithing. Jeremy's correspondence before the course and organization of order forms and payment processing during it made for a smooth and efficient experience throughout the entire process.

The opportunity to spend even a few days under the tutelage of the highly talented CMP Custom Shop staff (who were generous enough to offer their advice and expertise on questions not directly related to the class whenever they were asked) was extraordinarily valuable. More than that, however, the CMP AMC provided me with a very fun weekend spent with my father doing something we both enjoy that I will always remember - and a damned nice M1 rifle!

Thank you and please continue the exceptional work you're doing.
