A Resolution

One of my resolutions is to acquire an M1 Garand via the Civilian Marksmanship Program. I'm not interested in a collector grade model and don't really care if it has been repaired as long as it is serviceable and can shoot straight. I'd appreciate any comments from folks who have had experience purchasing an M1 through the CMP. For example, what grade rifle would you suggest if all I want is to take it to the range a few times a year?

I would go for service grade, and honestly, I'd make the trip to Anniston, AL and pick your own rifle. That's what I did. Pleasant experience, and well worth the trip. If you join Garand Collectors Assn ahead of time, that qualifies as a 'club' to allow you to buy direct.
