Have they taken care of the rifle, Evan? I know this may border on historic sacrilege. If they can't, (or don't) replace the barrel with an original from the same manufacturer, perhaps a replacement from Green Mountain Barrels would be appropriate?

What has happened?

Hi, I'm a big advocate of the CMP. That being said I've noticed a decline in quality. I was sent a Field Grade that had a broken elevation assembly. The rifle also had an out of time action that needed a new bullet guide. The stock had a six to eight inch piece taken out of the rear stock were the cheek would rest. The timing was not noticeable without a gauge. The other defects were very noticeable. They also rendered the rifle unshootable. The CMP fixed it and gave me a nice GI stock. The thing is; what about the poor guy that doesn't have a timing gauge? Noticeable defects should be fixed before shipping. I think Evan's rifle was picked out at the North Store so this was not the case. I'm glad the CMP has great customer service, regards, Mike

the old timers at Anniston that really knew Garands are disappearing as fast as the rifles themselves.

the rack and field grades where always a crap shoot, and I doubt a timing gage is even used on one.

having said that rifles that will pass a timing gage check still might not work, that's why they were test fired before they were issued during the War. Still true today, if your rifle works with the clips and ammo you got you don't need a gage anyways.

just as a side but 10 years ago I was at a show in Birmingham. I ran into a guy that had a half dozen Service grade DCM rifles and talked him out of one with a NM op rod for $500.

big difference between that rifle and the "stuff" that's came out of there in recent years.

Hi GW, I always have had luck with service grades; not so much with Field grades. They only check the muzzle and throat and test fire them, no timing gauge. I guess the guy never noticed the broken elevation spindle or the slinters on the stock. The bolt would not close on a clip. I doubt it was ever shot. That being said after it was fixed it shot awesome as most Garands do, regards, mike
