I want to thank you and the staff at CMP for the wonderful M-1Garand that was shipped to me. It was all Springfield and had a wonderful stock. The 1+ on the muzzle and throat make it that much more special. My fathers family is from Springfield, MA. His fathers brother, my uncle T, first wife was named Beatrice. I never met Aunt Bea’s brother.Her brother worked at the “Springfield Works” in the R & D department with Mr. John Garand. I was fortunate to know all of these relatives well as longevity runs in the family. I wish I would have met him, I’m sure he had a lot of great stories he would never share. As soon as money is saved up , I’ll be back.
