I just got an e-mail from CMP say my special rack grade M1 Garand along with a free hard case shipped today.
I MAILED the paperwork and check just 14 days ago. Checked cleared on Saturday.
As per CMP description..." CMP Special Rack Grade (.30-06) M1 Garand. This is a partially refurbished rifle with a refinished M1 receiver, new production criterion barrel, new production American Walnut stock and handguards, and new web sling. Receiver is the only part of the rifle that has been refinished. Remainder of the other parts have NOT been refinished."
All for $650 and NO S&H charge.
