My Match Grade M1's came from the CMP, but Match Grades have to be built up from an issue grade rifle. You can see my two match grades here: http://www.swampworks.com/warships/SwampysStuff-Home.htmli wanted to ask do you use one right from CMP or one you well lets say tricked out or made up your self? i was thinking of a building one in 308 with all the best close to new parts i could find and NM parts too.
I say, AMEN Brotha'........Because of my Garand experience I can sometimes beat the Masters and Highmasters in a Garand match because of their lack of .30 caliber experience.
One of these days I will go back to the AR and try to move up to master class but now I am having more fun than I have ever had shooting across the course using my .30 calibers and for me since I am having fun and learning to shoot a real rifle that is all that matters.
Again, a big AMEN... !!!Personally, I believe the Garand, properly set-up, is still competitive. It just takes alot more to be competitive against guys who shoot the ARs because of the guns, not the shooters.
Me too! I have shot a couple of MASTER score just not back to back. I have fired a 471 with my JCG rifle 8)If getting a Master rating was my goal I could've had it years ago by shooting the black rifle. Just going Master is not my goal. Going Master WITH AN M1 is my goal........
