CMP Parts built M1

Recommended Posts

Saw a recent CMP parts built M1 Garand for sale at an LGS. The action and barrel looked great, but the stock was truly disappointing. As best I could tell, it was a soft wood, like white pine, and had a reddish flat stain applied that left it with a cheapo looking feel to it.  It had a nick in the pistol grip that had exposed bare white wood, so that stain hadn't penetrated very deeply. At the price that was being asked, I would have expected better. Wouldn't consider buying it unless I had the budget to replace that stock with something better. Anybody else seen this with them?

No. Every one I've gotten was walnut-stocked. I've seen quite a few birch (beech?) stocks that were stained a pumpkin orange by the CMP. Functional but not very attractive.

This sounds like what I am talking about. It is almost orange and a very white stringy wood like beech.
