    On the Carbine, make sure the piston is free, other than that, try a different mag, stick with the 15 round mags. If you are still looking for a H&R, I just listed one.

    Poole and the rest of the team will be heading for Perry at the end of July. I won't be making the trip due to work commitments. Will see if I can get a North Store report.

    I just got my Field Grade M1 Garand from the CMP. I really did not know what to expect honestly but the CMP website says orders are processed in about 45 days. I got mine in about 8 days right to my front door via FedEx. The Receiver is a October 1943 receiver and the Barrel is 1953. The Armorers inspection tag give it a TE of 3 and ME of 3. The finish is fair, no rust or pitting and came in what appears to be a new stock. Matching wood and smells of new walnut. It was a very good and easy transaction and for the price, cant be beat. I have yet to shoot her as i hear that shooting off the shelf ammo is over powered and will bend the op rod so am on the look out for MilSurp 30-06 or some loading recipes.

    Anyhow, I have owned some garands over the years, one from CAI which was garbage, and then some MixMasters off gunbroker that I had to piece together, but this is my first legitimate GI garand. All is Springfield Armory except the Bolt which is IHC.

    I dont see M1 Garands much anymore at gunshows or classifieds, and when I do, they are seriously overpriced. I got this one more for nostalgia and tribute to my Grandfather who is a WWII and Korea veteran and fills the need in my US Military rifle collection. M1 through M16 (to include the carbines) .. except my M1 Carbine is a commercial receiver made by Auto Ordnance but all else is USGI, passed down to me from my Grandpa who bought it for $70 from Montgomery ward in Indiana.

    Heres a Pic of my new CMP M1 Garand. And the CMP case is quite nice too.
