Not a problem....
There are Garand associations you can join by email and qualify to buy from the CMP.

Check their web site for approved clubs and organizations.

Be aware that CAI (Century Arms International) assembled rifles with used and sometimes very worn parts that may have been refinished to look better then they are.
Their "gunsmiths" have a rather bad reputation for botched work.

Assembling these suspect parts to a good barreled receiver may be very problematic, and it's very likely some of your parts will be unusable.

Given a choice I'd consider selling the CAI rifle and buying a good M1 from the CMP.
Not only will you get a good rifle, if there's a problem they'll make it right.
