I just got word that the DCM has the go ahead to import from the Philippines over 65,000 M-1 rifles. I'm told the rifles are free to the DCM,shipping has to be paid to get the rifles back into the USA.
Lets hope the DCM can keep the "greed" down on the prices but I'm not holding my breath.

have you priced the insane prices that dealers and private individuals want for their M1s?

believe me the CMP prices on their M1s are going to be good. but more importantly, they will go through a complete tear down and refurbishment process, where unserviceable parts replaced and they will be honestly graded on barrel condition.

but, if you find the price isn't to your likening then you are free not to buy one.

CMP service grades are $730 shipped right now. That's less than the "street" price. I just received another Springfield from them Friday.

I would think this would help to keep the price down. As long as they
have rifles, they set the market price. When they are finally all gone,
the real market will set the price. I hope they were stored well. It is
not the best climate for rifle storage.

Sounds like you got a keeper. The WW2 receiver is a nice catch.
