Re: Who else sent the PW to CMP for a 1911?

No, but it was because I already have several WW1 & WW2 1911 & 1911a1 pistols in better condition than what I think the service grade pistols will be. People are grousing that $1,050 for the service grade is too much but I'm firmly convinced that nobody is likely to lose any money on a genuine USGI...

Who else sent the PW to CMP for a 1911?

Today was the deadline for the packets to be postmarked. I sent mine to CMP the first day (Sept 4th) you could. My Dad carried one of those in the European theater in WWII and he passed away last year so I really wanted to get one. I had thought that it would be hundreds of thousands of people sendi...

That particular offering (Field Grade .308) sold out yesterday. Smokey, I owe you double thanks ! For those who want a CMP special...

Re: CMP Special Grade

Thanks Smokey for getting me to consider a special grade. I had ordered afew garands from CMP to fill out my collection ( to get one of each manufacturer, and I still need a winchester). I had a WWII SA, but ordered a Service grade H&R with a LMR barrel and a IHC Service grade. I had read your post ...

Welcome back. A Marxist state is meant to bring you down. I left Maryland for the same reason.

Re: North Korean military parade

I saw a photo recently where they were carrying mosin nagants. I laughed and thought maybe the Nork secretary of defense has a C&R and shops at Classic Firearms.

I stopped entering all those contests (NRA one too). I have enough stuff to waste time on without wasting it on the "Publishers Clearing House Contest of Guns"

Re: Hello from the Hill Country of Texas

Welcome to the forum from a fellow Texican. Congrats on the garand. What manufacturer if I may ask? I ordered a service grade Springfield from them a couple years ago and have been thinking of getting some other manufacturers since the CMP has gotten some more in. I like the Swedes too and have a co...
