I love my M-1. It's as accurate as can be. Now if I could just shoot straight.
Christmas is coming!
I got mine when CMP was called DCM...
I got it in the early ‘80s and it was delivered on Christmas Eve after an almost 1 year wait and without the letter saying it was coming (got the letter the following week) , what a Christmas present.
it cost about $125 at that time.....
and it was hand delivered by my mailman....who got a really good Christmas tip that year.

I got one through the CMP about fifteen years ago. It is a great looking International Harvester with an Iver Johnson trigger assembly.
It is so accurate I put three shots in one hole at 100 yards before witnesses. Unfortunatly that was the “sight in” shots for the match so the shots didn’t count. I have never been able to do that again.
The second one from the DCM was a Springfield m-1D. Not in quite as good of shape as the IH but it still shoots well. It came with a Weaver B4 scope. I wrote the NRA and they confirmed that the Army did issue some M-1Ds with Weaver scopes in the mid 1960s. I still have all the paperwork on this jewel.
You and me, brother.
