Well guys here's the trophies for the individual matches and the overall Championship. (M1 Garand not included as a prize) :cigarsmoking: So everyone that's in this thing needs to get out there and participate. Spread the word and maybe next year we can make this thing a whole lot bigger!

Those are pretty cool. I think you should include the Garand though. Thanks for all your work at this.

Did you do that M1? How does it shoot?

Not sure what you mean by "do"? It is my first CMP M1 and it's a Winchester receiver. The serial number dates from January 1942, the first month following Pearl Habor. The rest of it is a mixmaster of Springfield parts, but the barrel is dated 1968. It shoots quite accurately. How does it shoot? The bottom right target is the one shot with it in May.


This is the self loading rifle I am shooting in the C&R match for such. The stock is a Red Birch GI replacement stock and is unaltered in appearance from how I received it. Only has the P in a circle proof mark for showing the weapon was test fired. It did originally come with some grungy walnut handguards that I replaced with new red birch handguards so the entire weapn matches in color. It has the newer style of sight, not the old lock bar type that would of been on it originally. The receiver is engraved RRAD 1968 for Red River Army Depot. It was probably a rebuild in anticipation of sending it to Vietnam. I'm glad it didn't get sent there as it would of been lost or destroyed.
