    CMP already had Garand's listed before this shipment came in. They have mentioned that lack of maintenance and poor storage conditions will likely
    effect the quality of these Garands/Carbines coming in. They will (of course) go through them over time and grade them accordingly. I suspect a number
    will end up being part guns. Still it is nice addition to CMP inventory and there will be some good ones too.

    BTW I see CMP has raised the Garand Service Grade price to $750. shipped. It has been a little while since they done that and $25.00 price increase
    seems reasonable. Still far below commercial price.

    I am done buying Garand's so will leave it up to take up the slack (LOL).

    A Garand will be my next purchase. I notice the service grade $750 ones say 3-4 months shipping. I guess that these are the ones that have come in and they are working on. I would have a hard time buying a rifle and having to wait 3-4 months to get it! Lol

    Scott, I suspect what they are selling and working on now they already had in stock. I doubt they have had time to inventory, sort and grade this last shipment.
    Their shipment time goes up and down depending on orders. They fall behind when orders exceed what they can inspect and grade, which is a on-going thing.
    If they fall too far behind they sometimes cut off orders to allow them to catch up. If you think that is bad wait until you have to deal with NFA processing.
    I have a Thompson locked up in Florida and a suppressor locked up in a gun shop up north waiting and waiting for the tax stamp. Last one I got took 10 months (LOL)

    Garand's stacked up from many years of ordering, got them in racks now--

    No Rack, Field, then Service Grade are their 3 normal grading categories. Service grade being the best of the 3.

    The M1 rifles in South Korea were sold (at auction) and paid for by a US Importer with the approval of the US Congress, the US State Department (who arranged the and vetted the US firms that bid on the guns) and the ATF imports branch who approved the form 6's.
    The US DoS wanted to see the South Korean Gov't obtain funding from the sale so they could purchase new long guns.
    It was a Executive Action by President Obama that undid that import, and also prevented any further imports of US origin surplus.
    That has never been rescinded.
    Luckily the US Importer eventually had the funds returned.
    Remember, at the time the CMP director had stated repeatedly that the CMP wanted nothing to do with the M1 rifles or M1 carbines in South Korea.

    Funny how this is going.

    Yea, South Korea wanted paid for the guns and CMP does not buy guns to sell. Big argument over if they were given to Korea or loaners that needed to be returned to us.
