I have found a CMP HRA Garand for sale for $600. I know nothing about them, but here is what I am drooling over:
CMP refinished Harington & Richardson - All H&R except
new Springfield barrel
National match o.p. rod
CMP stock ( looks new ) Stamped CMP on left side once
finish is a grayish-green ( at least in the light I was looking at it in)
guy says the barrel gages at "0" - whatever that means.
It does have the CMP paperwork also
a full bandoleer

As I said, he wants $600 . Is it worth this ? And if so, how much could it be over that amount.
I have to trust what the guy tells me about the gun, I know nothing about Garands except I always wanted one.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
H.M.

I wouldn't worry about the stock. The CMP does a pretty good job.

my buddy and I gave one away like that a couple of years ago.  We did sell it to a buddy, so we get to shoot it still.   Now, as soon as it warms up  (it was -15 this morning) I have the urge to go shoot it!  Thanks
