    2006 CMP Correct Grade

    Going through my safe the other day and pulled this Correct Grade out of the back which I mail ordered in 2006. I remember it came slathered in grease preservative. Rifle is in amazing condition, doesn't even have finish wear to the op rod track, MW .5 TW-1
    Rifles like this were normal back then, how things have changed
    I have been told that "F" stamped safeties were used in late SA garands and this rfile confirms that as it has one

    Those were the good old days. Beautiful rifle. I wish I forgot about rifles like that in my safe.

      Re:"F" marked safetys:
      I read some where YEARS ago that if the "F" is serrifed, it is SA. If the "F" is unserrifed, it's IHC.
      Bill, is yours serrifed or not?

          Jon , the safety in my rifle is serif F
          Wayne Bradford explained this once in a post on the CMP forum.

          Quote "As for the F safety itself: IHC indeed stamped the F safety, and the F stood for the heat lot of the steel - this helped IHC give the proper amount of heat treating to the part. The seriff/no seriff was probably the result of ordering new dies for the stamping process, and getting a slightly different font from the supplier. It is worth noting that the IHC-marked safety had both the seriffed font, and the non-seriffed font, too."

          He stated that F safeties were found on some late SA rifles and went on to explain there was parts swapping between parts manufactures in post war rifles

              Bill,
              Thank you for clearing that up. Much appreciated.
              Speaking of Wayne Bradford, is there any word on his book yet?
