I have seen 7.62x51 brass several times that was mistakenly fired in a 30.06 chamber. It comes out straight walled but does not cause catastrophic failures.
That being said I do not condone trying it

Thumbs up waaaaahoooooooooooooooooooooo

I saw a guy on Armslist who had a 1954 M1 30.06 manufactured by H & R who wanted to trade for a M1 carbine. Well, I have 2 Carbines, one of which is a 1964 Universal. The other is my gem, a 1944 made by Standard manufacturing. It's pristine but I digress....anyway, I contacted the guy he said "lets do it". He tossed in 400 rounds and 12 Enbloc's and the cleaning rod and tool and a hard case. Plus the manual.
I gave him the 1964 M1 carbine, 200 rounds, 3 mags and soft case. No CASH! The M1 30.06 looks great and cycles perfectly. He took the iron sights off for a scope but never mounted it so I'm trying to put the sights back on...

Ratfink2u,

CONGRADS on your trade!!! = H&R "late models" are NICE, imVho.
(I've seen several that appeared to be UNUSED, including about 20 at the armory of the NOCSO in New Orleans. - When I worked there, I was told that the city bought them for the "tower guards" but never used them. - Tower guards at the NOPP used shotguns & Winchester Model 1907 rifles in .351WSL, when I lived there.)

yours, sw

Ratfink2u; All,

"A little bird" told me on email that there will be MANY more Garands in both CMP stores soon. (On Wednesday, I was told that they had less than 30 pieces in the south store, other than drill rifles.) - perhaps in September.
MAYBE some IHC SG???
(I've got the $$$$ squirreled away for 4 & am waiting not really patiently for them to appear in the south store.)

yours, sw

Ratfink2u,

CMP is "The Source" for GARANDS/M1 CARBINES/1903/P-17/.22LR rifles, parts & other NEAT stuff.
(For example, several years ago, I bought 3 dozen new tee-shirts there for 1.99 each at the North Store at Camp Perry OH. The South store is at Ft McClellan, AL. = That purchase solved any number of requirements for "small gifts" to friends/family/co-workers.)

It's the abbreviation for the CIVILIAN MARKSMANSHIP PROGRAM. Check out: Civilian Marksmanship Program for LOTS of GREAT & CORRECT info/stuff.

yours, sw

Ratfink2u,

We "EOF" tend to forget that everyone hasn't been on battlerifles.com OR "around" since The Flood.
(CHUCKLE)

It's NOT hard to get qualified to buy from CMP in person/worldwidewierd. = The staff members are "GOOD PEOPLE" & HELPFUL.

NOTE: In some cases, CMP has had "real sleepers" that are of "major historical significance". = A friend of mine bought a 1903 (LOW 4 NUMBER) Springfield (made in 1903, rebuilt in 1917 & reissued in 1918 for WWI service) some years ago (for a REALLY LOW PRICE, too), that had been "personalized by" a member of THE HARLEM TIGERS & his "pocketknife work"/TRENCH ART is now on display at a military museum.
(That '03 was carved with the SM's name, serial number, DoB, PoB, unit, campaigns and "some other patriotic designs" = it is a "work of art", too. Btw, the SM DOW in France about 2 weeks before 11/11/18.)

yours, sw

Ratfink, In order to buy a rifle from the CMP you have to belong to an affilated gun club. You can fulfill that requirement by joining the garand collectors association. It costs 25.00 a year and you get a really nice magazine several times a year.

The GCA is a great club but if you are looking for a cheaper alternative the M1 Collectors Club is also a great option. Only $14 per year, no quarterly mag but a good cheap way of fullfilling club membership. They also forward club info to CMP just as the GCA does
Home Page
The CMP requirements may look alittle intimidating but are actually very easy.
Eligibility Requirements
I see from your profile you are a retired cop and a veteran, that takes care of firearms handling portion of requirememnts. If you belong to a Vets organization that takes care of club membership
You are set!

Ratfink2u,

IF you already belong to your state's: ___________ State Rifle Assn (shame on you if you don't!), you need NOT join either Garand group, as as a LEO/Vet you're qualified, once you fill out the forms.

yours, sw

I know both Orlando(I'm E-7Ret. on the CMP forum) and Stand Watie from my many years here and, actually both guys are right. All CMP sales, for the most part, online are luck of the draw. Just like the old 'Rack-Grades' the CMP sold, I'm sure there were just as many gems as stinkers in these Barreled receivers. I had been thinking about ordering one myself but, with my luck, the barrel would've been a Tomato-Stake!

Retmsgt,

I've NEVER gotten ANYTHING from CMP that I wasn't DELIGHTED with.
(Getting a long box from CMP is "my Christmas" ever time up to now.)

A couple of our local members have seen my "really cheap" Danish Garand, which has (pardon me for bragging) as PURTY of an European Beech stock as I've ever seen.
(Once degreased, dents steamed out & refinished, the stock's grain looks like the side of "a hotrod with flames".)

Otoh, it was REALLY cruddy & a PITA to re-do, when I got it. = I opened the box & said, "OH well. Had to happen sooner or later."
(Then I started cleaning it & I've told everyone what I found.)

Note: "A little bird told me" recently by phone that CMP South is SOON likely to get some "corn-binders". = IF that happens, I will be "out of the driveway & down the road to Anniston" SOON.

yours, sw
