CMP News Update
This is an update to the CMP News post I did a few days ago.
Seems they're currently Sold Out of U.S.G.I. Winchester, U.S.G.I. International Harvester & Danish winchester Service Grade Garands. Greek Springfield Armory Service Grades are still available for $500 but there's a 60 to 90 day wait for them.
Just thought you'd like to know.

FWIW, I'm currently reading "Boston's Gun Bible", by Boston T. Party. Except for "collector" value (e.g. having 1 from each mfr. or something like that), Boston argues against the Winchesters. If you go with H&R, you're guaranteed to get a post WWII, which, according to Boston, will be a better rifle, owing to various design improvements over time. There are, of course, Springfields having those as well, but I don't see anything on the DCM page specifying date of mfr. for those. Boston sez to stay away from the International Harvester guns.
