  1. Will the CMP git the turn in GI Betetta or CMP HK2000 pistols? Curious as 2 thier fate? TY 4info wanted a Beretta 4ever!

  2. And yet they're still 1.1+k for a damned rifle in halfway decent condition….. especially considering that these rifles were about $20 – 30 when they were first made and issued to troops. Essentially, CMP took rifles that were ALREADY PAID FOR, took them back, marked them up into space, and sold them back to the American people who previously paid for the rifles in the first place. For shame on CMP!

  3. Springflied Serial number: 1855539; Is this an August 1943 production dated garand? Year on barrel is stamped: 1-S-A-5-44 (is this a 1944 barrel?). I was told this was a CMP Gun and the rear right side windage knob is marked with the letters DRC. Thank you.

  4. Evidently, CMP is just as greedy as corporate America. M1911 selling for $1,100.00 or more.
    If that's not bad enough, the hoops you have to jump through, to buy just one.

  5. I hope you know you just made me cry !!😭 all this beauty in one room I can't stand it !!
    Please this is way too much love in this place !
    Can you give me the address?
    My buddy and I are going here !
    Or there phone number ?

  6. The prices are way out of line and I have no need for an M1 Garand. Now an M14 would be my preference as that was what I carried.

  7. Hell we could use those m-1s if Trump will give to Americans to stop the invasion from the walkers to our border

  8. The CMP prices are way too high for these rifles, especially considering WE already paid for them once already. And they cost a staggering $17.50 new. Some mark up on guns already bought, paid for and used by our military.

  9. Can someone explain how exactly you can buy an m1 garand from cmp? I hear its a hassle but I'm not sure how.

  10. From the beginning I figured there was going to be more scalping going on when these were sold than there was during the Indian wars…and I was right !

  11. They are asking way to much for all there firearms. The CMP is a,rip off. To pay over 900 dollars for a 45 auto, when the government paid less than 50 dollars for each weapon years ago. Shame on the CMP, they are way out of line, maybe the government should investigate the CMP.

  12. Thus videos is very interesting, I love this video so much.😍 I love working in guns, so I will get an m1 carbine and buy an action parts for a project.

  13. Many years ago when we had honest, patriotic public servants, it was considered in the national interest to have an armed, trained citizenry. Civilian marksmanship was seen as a national asset. Today, our DOMESTIC ENEMIES in Washington have been working for many years to disarm us. These DOMESTIC ENEMIES see the American people as the enemy – but they won't come out an say it. They will arm terrorists around the world as they work to disarm the people they are supposed to be representing – the people who pay their salaries.

  14. More Vastly overpriced rifles ! CMP is Crazy Mega Prices. as anyone ever stopped to figure or understand how much they have in each rifle of the lots they receive. One group I calculated at around $23 each yet they want to ask thousands for some of them. Just bogus insane.

  15. Seeing this for the first time. I am in the process of ordering a service grade m1. Can't wait to get it, but I will be patient. When it arrives, I will be like a kid at Christmas.

  16. You wouldn’t believe the service grade M1 I purchased from CMP. It came from Anniston excellent shape with new wood and it’s a real great shooter!!! I’ve used it in matches out to 600 yards. No I didn’t place but got my rounds on the paper.🇺🇸😃

  17. Why is the CMP charging sooooo much for these US gov owned rifles. It’s all our tax dollars that org paid for all those rifles in the first place.

  18. Great video, very informative. Glad you love the rifles for the history. Many just want guns instead of appreciating what it was once manufactured for.

  19. How many congressthings did CMP have to buy to be named the only authorized seller of our guns? Vets should get first choice not some crooked thieves.

  20. I had an uncle that decided he wanted a M1 carbine like his issue weapon during WWII. This was back in 1960 or '61. Off of an ad on the back of a magazine, might have been the American Rifleman, he ordered a M1 for $19! I remember when it came he was a bit put out because it was in cosmoline. I sat and watched as my father helped him degrease it. Still, even at prices I can't afford, I am awfully glad that these instruments of freedom aren't being cut up for scrap.

  21. Good God I would be slobbering all over these things. We will never see anything like this here in Canada. Just the history in that room is crazy.

  22. I have a Springfield 1942 Garand, things a tack driver , with open sights off the bench with hand loads does a inch group. Most modern rifles with scopes can't do that.

  23. So can anybody buy these rifles from cmp? Or is it a private club? Can you buy more than one rifle? Cause I collect military surplus rifles and those prices are awsome.

  24. the cmp is run incorrectly the weapons are supposed to be priced where the average guy can afford a descent piece of history but they are not when the 45's get sold they should be about 200 to 250 but i promise they will not be reasonably priced its a shame the only people that can afford them are the people that can afford to buy a top of the line kimber
    45 such a shame the average guy gets screwed again
