CMP SALES AT THE 2010 WESTERN CMP GAMES. The Western CMP Games and Creedmoor Cup Match combine to offer an unprecedented nine-day series of clinics, recreation-oriented "as-issued" military rifle matches and national-class service and match rifle competitions with the best highpower rifle shooters in the country. The event will take place 16-24 October at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility, Phoenix , AZ. The Official Program and on-line registration are posted at http://www.odcmp.com/competitions/westerngames.htm. M1 Garand rifles will be available for selection and subsequent purchase. Memorabilia, new rifle barrels, gun cases, bayonets, rifle stocks, and ammunition will be available for immediate purchase.



M1 CARBINES SOLD OUT. The CMP is now sold out of M1 carbines except for the few we will still be selling on our auction program. http://auction.odcmp.com/auctions/index.asp. At this time, we have no reason to expect to receive any additional quantities of carbines.



CMP LOGO RIFLE HARD CASES. CMP has purchased a large quantity of rifle cases for single scoped rifles. Until inventory of these cases is exhausted, M1 Garands will be shipped in one of these cases at no extra charge. Cases are MADE IN THE USA for CMP. Case is made of GI green molded plastic & features a patented PillarLock system for extra strength and crush resistance. Each case is custom molded w/ CMP logo on each side. Interior foam rubber is of special dimensions to hold your rifle extra snugly. Case also features four black contoured recessed latches, padlock points, steel hinge pins& a molded handle. Case is large enough to hold one Garand, 1903 Springfield , 1917 Enfield or a 1898 Krag rifle. These cases are also available for purchase. See item PC006 under the Equipment & Accessories tab on the eStore. $30 + $10.95 S&H. https://estore.odcmp.com/Store/login/login.aspx.



ESTORE CREDIT CARD CHARGING CHANGES. Currently, CMP does not charge credit cards until a few days before actual shipment. This applies to eStore orders also. Beginning before the end of October, we plan to modify eStore to automatically process the order and charge the card at time order is placed. This will result in eStore orders being shipped within 1-2 workdays after order is placed.



WWII ERA BAYONETS COMING SOON. Before the end of November, 2010 CMP will have the WWII era M1 model (10") bayonets for sale in the stores and on the eStore. Prices are not yet set, but these bayonets will be priced very reasonably.



COMMERCIAL GAS TRAP KIT AVAILABLE. As a service to our customers, we are forwarding information received from Rat Worx (Research and Testing Worx, Inc.) of Mt. Morris , Illinois . Newly-manufactured, fully-shootable gas trap front end kits for the M1 Garand rifle are now available. According to their Web site (www.ratworxusa.com), these gas trap parts are manufactured from the original 1937-40 U.S. Government drawings. Each part is fully interchangeable with 1937-40 production components.



CMP iPHONE APP NOW AVAILABLE. CMP is the official app for keeping score at Civilian Marksmanship Program sponsored shooting events. It features an easy to use interface that allows for quick recording of your score after each string. The CMP app calculates your shooting percentages automatically to let you know how you are doing throughout the event.

Well I for one am glad that they now charge you when you order. It played hell on my account when I never knew WHEN they were going to pull the cash! Sometimes a multi month wait! :)

Okay, so what's the deal with the Winchester M1 Garands? Is it just brand prefference?

Basically its a Garand with a few differences,, They have the Winchester Logo on the receiver instead of simple block lettering. They also have a locking bar on the windage knob as do some SA guns, my H&R does not.
They might be a bit more "finished" too.
The GCA magazine has Winchester Guns in the featured rifle stories all the time.

Kinda a "special" Garand,,, and priced accordingly.

My H&R will hit 18" steel at 200 yds off hand,, close enough for me.

These Winchester Garands will have the newer T105 sights on them. The only Winny part, in all probablity , will be the reciever. With rare exception, this is what has in the past been the case. Winchester Garands had/have the roughest finish on their parts of all of the Garand manufacturers. Winchester parts are notorious for milling and machining marks. For some reason they did not care much about that at the time. The Winchester name on the reciever is bringing the small premiun on these over the SA's and HR's.

Springfield was a govt. entity , Winchester was a commercial firm. Finer finish on the parts would have cost more $$$ , as would any updates or changes in production. This is why the finish was poorer and the changes in the parts less common , they only did what the govt. was willing to pay for.
