    That I ordered a second one from them. This time an H&R and one grade better. CMP just called me because they could not read my writing and of the CC number, and I corrected it. She said should ship within a couple days!

    How long did it take for you to get qualified to buy from cmp. Are you a member or just a vet?

    took me no time at all. I was a vet, but that had nothing to do with it. I had a C&R Curio And Relics license, and that was half the qualification right there. I joined The Illinois State Rifle association for the first one for the second part. And when I moved down to Alabama I joined a shooting range that was CMP affiliated.

    Is being a vet or retired ok instead of being a member of a orig?

    I'm not a Vet, and to my understanding you don't need to be.

    Just sign up for the class at a certified range, shoot for 3 weekends, and BAM! :D Fill out the paperwork.

    Don't matter how crappy ya shoot. Ya showed up and ya shot. Trust me on this one. :eek:

    Yer rifle gets shipped, and ya have no say what condition it'll be in. You CAN pay more for a better version, but it's a crap shoot as to how much better it may be.

    Win-win in my opinion regardless of choice! :D

    That is a beautiful example of what can be had from the CMP! ;)

    I think that you HAVE to be a member of a range that is affiliated with the CMP. I have bought four rifles from them but I just don't remember for sure. I also have a C&R but I never used it with the CMP. I guess the C&R would prove you are over 21 and are a US citizen.

    Here is a link to the page that gives the eligibility rules: http://www.thecmp.org/Sales/eligibility.htm

    Back in April, I ordered just a receiver to have one built. I had every part except the receiver. When I sent it to a fellow in Alabama to have the barrel installed, he found that it was out of spec. He tried the barrel that I sent and 12 different barrels and could not get any of them to work. I sent it back to the CMP and built an AR-15 instead of an M1. I sold a lot of the parts on eBay but still have a good many of the parts laying around.

    how much do they run now?

    I think I paid $450 when I got mine, haven't shot it that much really because of my M14 and M1A but I do like the '06. A bunch of them were swapped to .308 also

    which grade did you get? she looks clean!

    Nice! I got my first one from the DCM program back in 1988. Paid $165.00 shipped back then.
