CMP Garand just knocked on my front door

nice springfield service grade, the wood is nicer than expected but still easily distinguishable from the new production that they slap on the special grades.

springfield barrel stamped 6-52.
throat measure 4.
bore measure 2.
288xxxx serial. I guess that puts it right at the end of April 1944.

I don't have anything that I can say for sure it garand safe except for some tracer and black tip and don't really want to waste that stuff on paper so I'll have to see about getting some M2 ball HXP from CMP next.

I have about 1400 rounds of HXP 303 brit and man that stuff is consistent and accurate... can't wait to see what it can do in a garand.

I'll post pics soon.
