The CMP has been notified that any M1 Garand rifles still in depot storage will not be transferred to the CMP, but will be retained in support of veterans' organizations. We had expected to receive some of these Garands for use in filling the backlog of "USGI" orders. Any future transfers of M1 Garands to the CMP will be MAP returns and will not meet our current definition of "USGI". As a result, over the next few weeks our staff will be contacting everyone who has an existing order for a "USGI" Garand to find out if the customers would like to change the order to an option currently in stock or cancel the order altogether.

I got My Garand from them in the early 80s. Number 246,xxx. Old 1944 barrel so it is not as accurate as it could be but it looks great in my collection.

Pity. I really wanted one without having to pay the $1k+ pricetag.. Guess I'll have to get a Greek issue instead :cry:
