Anyone else get a M1 Carbine from CMP yet?
I went to the CMP store and got this last Thursday.
Here's another pic, it's a service grade.
They had a bunch of Garands at the store, though no service grades.
I didn't, but my father did, and I inherited it from him.
It's nice, too, he got a National Match M1 with a carefully-spec'd barrel and glass bedding (but if it has DCM papers, I can't find them anywhere.)
Cool, back in the day CMP didn't pick out the good stuff to sell for a higher price, I know a guy who got a M1C with all accessories back in the early 80's for the standard price.
I sent a mail order. I fucked up and thought a regular envelope with a stamp would get it in.
They got 23 tubs of USPS Express mail on the first day the Carbine order window opened. RIP
Camp Perry or Anniston? When did the first guy in line arrive?
Must be Anniston. Perry has a bathroom right inside door.
Fuck off, kindly. Its shitty customer service that they can't send an email out saying 'hey, got your order'.
Since they haven't replied, nothing in the order process is 'backed up'.
5000 orders on february 1st. 1000 carbines on hand. maybe 4 people working through opening each fucking envelope.
You're right, kiddo, you deserve to know exactly what place your order is in. Hell, they should put you in in a #1 spot for the 1911 release to ease your bereavement! The nerve of the CMP!
Is this your first time or something, fuccboi?
Well, mainly because theyre cheaper, have actually been inspected, and you know that what youre getting will be certified authentic. Plus, its fun to have a CMP rifle arrive at your door without knowing much about it... its like christmas.
I'm not the same guy but you can shut the fuck up. People who already have orders in are being delayed because of fit wits like you that need muh stuff now!!! Go fucking suckle your mum's tit and I seriously hope you aren't one of the 1,000 for the carbines because your ass doesn't deserve it you fuckin man child.
inb4 >hurr my customer service hurrr!!!!
That logic only applies when you're dealing with for profit companies.
This is not a for profit company. This is a government program providing rifles to citizens in an attempt to recoup costs while encouraging firearms ownership. It is literally the most positive thing for gun owners in the entire United States government.
Shut the fuck up.
Yes, Have a CCL or proof of military service, Check thecmp.org they list the acceptable proofs. You can even get commercial range to certify you shoot, the form's on the CMP site.
Wish they would keep us in the loop a little more. Shouldve just picked 1000 orders at random from the Monday mail pile and then sent out an SOL email to the not so lucky customers that they didn't get picked this time around instead of having up biting our nails for 3 weeks wondering if we made the cut.
mfw i have a service grade m1 carbine just waiting for me when my uncle dies
Jesus Christ anon, if you expect that kind of customer service then you should expect to spend a shitload more. The CMP is a nonprofit organization and heavily understaffed.
Please get tucked as others have suggested.
