Being that CMP is self funded but depends on rifles from our government only, if the supply of Garands at CMP are dwindling(M1917,1903,1903A3 are pretty much non existent) dont you think it would be in the best interest of our military or government to try to sway the Korean government instead of selling them to importers to give or sell them back to the military?
I see your point but the problem with that being that this program is for all intents and purposes a nonprofit organization and depends on the equivalent of donations in the form of rifles that the US government no longer has a use for. if the military buys those rifles from South Korea just to turn around and donate them, CMP will no longer be a self sufficient organization as it will be costing tax dollars in the form of re-appropriating obsolete weaponry to keep it functioning.
