Old and the new

Discussion in 'The Powder Keg' started by Charly B, Apr 14, 2002.

  1. I received my CMP-SA dane mit VAR Thursday, one day
    short of a month from order. It is in excllent condition
    except for the stock which ended up being cleaned w/
    "Renewz" (akin to oven-off) after every thing else failed.
    This stuff is very hard on the wood. The SN make's it 1942,
    & barrel 1969. So on with the story, Last week my new
    SA Inc. Garand came in, SN-7100xxx. It is a nice rifle but
    they don't make them like they use to (they don't even
    install the front handguard spacer-susposly affects accuracy ).
    even the CMP booklet,shipping box & key lock are all better.
    For the money go CMP

    CMP is deffinately the way to go. If the hand guards are tight they will bind on barrel and shot group will go all over as the barrel heats and cools. You need to trim the back by receiver on guard and leave the front loose. There are more dramatic wasy but only if you are match shooting I would say. Rick B

    No Clue only worked with real wood. I guess you can be the first to experiment and let us know. What did you want to do with that stock you have? I didn't see any answer on the other post. Hang on to it untill you are sure you dont need it. I can work wonders on it I bet. Rick B
