    Great video, I saw it a couple of months ago. It makes me want to go and find the winnie I need to complete my collection.
    Yes I am for gun control!! A firm grip, steady aim, and a gentle squeeze!!

    What comes after your first "infraction"? Double Secret Probation perhaps???

    I was very happy with the condition. Mine is a service grade. I hear that the Field grades are often somewhat rough recently, so I would suggest going with the Servicegrade.

    If youíd like you can PM me and Iíll send you some pictures later this week.

    Can we all get a peak? Just got one of the Turk returns and it had was more than expected but the Philippines ones have faced so much scrutiny due to humidity. Would love to hear, and more importantly SEE, metal condition. I assume all or most will be in CMP wood.

    Iíll see if I can get some pictures up today. I ordered two, hoping to give myself a better chance of at least one being WW2 era as that was my main interest. Ended up getting both 1942ís in USGI wood. Undecided yet if Iím keeping the second.

    As as for the metal condition, one had a very good finish. Probably been reparked at some point, but didnít have that ugly light grey park job thankfully. It looks very good. Almost no surface rust, and the tiny bit that was present was easily removed with 0000 steel wool.

    The second had had a bit more wear on the metal. Not bad, but it had definitely seen its share of use. It had some surface rust on the trigger guard and gas cylinder, but most of it was also easily removed.

    I dropped an order for a Service Grade International Harvester into the mail last Tuesday when I mailed my 1911 order packet. Exactly a week later, this beauty showed up on my door step. It is pretty impressive that with everything going on at the CMP, GCA Convention, 1911 Orders, etc., they filled my order in less than a week!


    The new cases are a bit larger; but, not as sturdy than the old green ones...



    On the back of the hang tag was the letter "Y" which I believe indicates the York Building which is where they are working the Philippine Island MAP Returns...



    It has the dark stained CMP Walnut stock...




    The barrel was made by LMR on 3-54...based on the placement of the punch mark and the breach is 'in the white', I'm guessing the barrel is original.




    Although, the receiver, bolt, sights and gas cylinder are IHC; the OpRod and entire trigger group are SA.


    The original finish is in great shape...


    I certainly didn't expect such great muzzle and throat measurements. I haven't measured for myself yet. It has been my experience that the CMP's numbers are always conservative.




    I was hoping for an original IHC Stock; but, I don't mind the CMP walnut stocks. All she needs is several coats of RLO, a little grease and some range time. I couldn't be happier with this rifle.

    I got one of the last IHC's before the Phillipine returns also in service grade. It looks very much in the same condition as yours. That should be one great shooter.
    I won't be shooting mine, I have a few Springfields to shoot.
    Wanted an IHC because my dad worked for them in Evansville both before and after Korea. They sent me a late 1954 which is when he married my mother. Couldn't be more pleased.
    CMP will send you a rifle at least as good as the description in my experience.
