    Awesome Joe!!! Shes a real beauty. Congrats. STILL beatin on the ol' Mosin myself. After seeing your Garand, it might be time to go for one soon. Im wondering if most service grade Garands from the CMP are as nice as yours tho? Kinda worried, with my luck and all.. lol
    Have you been able to let some rounds off yet?

    Thanks, Bill! I did a lot of research, and all of the service grade Garands I've seen look really nice. The only thing that comes into question is whether or not your service grade will be WWII vintage or later AND whether or not it'll have USGI wood or other.

    I say take the risk!

    Thats exactly what I was wondering Joe, if alot of them were not ww2 vintage. Thanks for the reply. I personally wouldnt be too worried about different manufacturer parts as much as I would about the wood types, but I will also do the research if I go for it. But this thread really got me going, as you could imagine

    I definitely understand your concern. I attached a sticky note to my CMP paperwork asking for a rifle w WWII vintage receiver and USGI wood. That's EXACTLY what I got . All hail the almighty sticky note!

    I had some jams/ instances of the unfired 8th round being ejected with enbloc clip... I think I can attribute that to using modern enblocs verses USGI. If anyone knows of a source for affordable USGI clips, I'd really appreciate it!

    While cleaning my Garand I took out my entire U.S. WWII rifle collection:

    Joe, the clip ejecting early may be from a worn out clip ejector spring, they're pretty cheap to replace. I'll look around to see if I've got any enblocs I don't need.
