I finally got into a gun club that offers cmp . Im going to my first match this sunday with my m4,pretty excited cause ive been on the clubs membership waiting list for almost two years. Now I plan on buying a garand thru cmp sales. Now the grades they offer for my budget are the RM1hras " service grade" harington and Richardson. I know nothing about how these come other than they are probably a little more dinged up, but may be more genuine(700$). The other option is RM1specialHRA 1000$ with a new barrel, stock,and may have some new parts. Now im not picky on the originality factor or anything I just want the best shooter and best condition to finally add to my collection. just wanted to see garand owners thoughts. Im just excited about getting a m1 that is in my price category. I cant pay 3000 bucks for one that ive rarely seen at a couple lgs.
