    Finally CMP came through!
    it was worth the wait! Its an Oct 1943 recever serial, early WRA bolt and a SA 2-52 rebarrel. wood is in excellect shape, allthough I can only find the circle P on the pistol grip.

    I love how 15 years ago, you had to find your gunshop Garand guy to get all the details, but now anyone can just google up a full history.

    The Internet is so cool.

    Hopefully my SG WRA will have one. Still waiting on it to hit the e-store. Will probably sell the FG WRA once the SG comes in

    I know Dec 1 orders are hitting the E-Store now. I hope you get one too, I think the WRA bolts are neat.

    Yeah I've really been wanting a Garand, first rifle I've ever shot that wasnt a .22. This seems like a good way to go.

    the only thing about M1 Garands is they can get messed up by shooting commercial ammo and really the only thing you should shoot is mil surp M2 ball.

    If I had gotten into .30-06 instead of .308, I would have bought one by now.
