Hi, tahunua001,

I don't think that is "what CMP does to theirs", I think that is the way CMP gets them from whoever the army loaned them to. The army did the demilling, not CMP, then loaned them to schools, drill teams and the like.

In any case, you are probably correct in thinking that a service grade from CMP may cost less in the long run than trying to restored that drill rifle to working condition, assuming that it is even feasible to do so.

FWIW, a decent used barrel could run over $100 and a new one around $350, not counting installation.
