    CMP Special…. all about the sexy

    Figured I'd make this forum legit… So I'm just gonna leave this here.

    Receiver dated Feb 1942.

    I have plans to put on a DGR semi fancy T1 shiny coated stock and have Orion 7 put on NM sights and do a trigger job. But being hosed with my OU recently by a local gun fitter has me trying to find funds to bring her back up to 100% with new wood.

      Thats puurrrdy!!! A couple of coats of boiled linseed oil will make that stock sing. Nice figure in the walnut!

        I never really was in to collecting milsurp until I made the mistake of starting to collect them. Now it's become an addiction.

          That's a good looking stock on it now. As mentioned a few coats of boiled linseed oil will really bring out that grain.

            I'd be interested to hear how the trigger job and sights work out. Nice gun. Jealous.

              May not be this year. Gots to prioritize and since I shoot clays more I should focus on bringing my beretta back up to par.

                          Call me crazy but I'll take a "seasoned" original stock over that perty CMP one any day

                            Yes! I know that if I knew about a near mint M1 with mint metal and magnificent barrel and crown but a few "seasoned" bumps on the stock a and a terrific quality review by Orion 7 with a serial #. of 5.7 M+ I'be excited too. But that undoubtedly will be owned by Guns N Golfs eventually! So understand he might be somewhat biased!

                            bah.... I was going to have Orion look at my Garands but seriously I googled a few things and I can take apart my own garand and replace my own springs fairly easily.

                            As far as the seasoned comment.... bah.... it's a fucking special and a totally refurbished rifle.... what the fuck do you expect I'm gonna get.... I aint waiting 6 months for a field grade.

                          Here is an article from The CMP about wood cleaning and refinishing.

                          http://thecmp.org/training-tech/armo...aning-article/

                          They actually recommend true tung oil over BLO for people trying to keep their stocks as close to original as possible. I understand that's not what the OP is discussing, but thought everyone might find the article interesting.

                            Here's a snapshot of the CMP store in Ohio. I went there a few times while visiting my daughter at college. Cool place.
