Mini's Grandpa Coming to Town!

Just saw this on the Firearms Blog. 86,000 M1 Grands are coming to the CMP from the Philippines.

I would love to have one to compliment the collection! There was a local lady trying to sell a receiver & barrel with 2 stocks around $400 but I didn't know if that was a good deal so I picked up a pistol instead.

Steve, we subscribe to the same website. Read that this AM and you beat me to the punch.

Now...if we could only get the M1 Carbines out of Korea and (hopefully) the PI. I like the Garands (the first non-.22 I ever fired and what I trained on and qualified with in JROTC), but much prefer the Carbine (it's easier on the thumb).

The headline says 'CMP may receive...'. The article doesn't say 'are coming', only 'could be'. It is still not 'for sure', yet.

Well if they do come I highly recommend getting one. I got a SA made in July 1941 for my birthday in September last year and its a great rifle that oozes history. Ive had a great time shooting it and working up loads for it.

I have 3 Garands now. At one time I had 6. I'll let someone else get one this time.

I've got one as well, don't really need another one, but this is good news. Any word on the ones that were supposed to come from South Korea during Obummer's tenure? Those should be A-OK to import now that the Communist-in-Chief is gone, no?

I saw on one website that speculation was that the guns from the Philippines were in bad shape, due to mishandling, poor storage, and the very humid climate.

How to get?

So how does a common man, like myself, get ahold of one of these?
