I just wanted to send off a quick note to express my to all the great folks at the CMP. As a Vietnam Vet I appreciate the battle rifle legacy that an M1 Garand represents and I will always view MINE as a piece of living history to be handed down through the generations.
I received my Special Rack Grade Garand yesterday and can honestly say that it is beyond my expectations in every way. My order was handled swiftly, also far quicker than I expected, and the process is one which I will likely repeat down the road.
As an aside, checking my serial number tells me that my receiver was built in mid-July, 1944 and on some level I will delight in shooting a machine whose heart is 5 years older than I am – LOL
Please pass on my thanks to the armorers and staff involved. You folks are the best!
