        When did you buy it? I have a CMP Special in .30-06 that I bought a few years ago. WWII SA receiver in perfect condition. I have a .308 I built myself on a CMP SA receiver, and that one was perfect too. I had a local hotshot armorer build a Krieger barreled match rifle for me on a SA Field Grade I acquired in May. That receiver has some small pits if you look closely. Probably a Turk return and most definitely should have been a Rack Grade for a laundry list of issues.

        I'm willing to bet that there are a bunch of WRA and IHC receivers that are on rough condition Philippine and Turkish returns. Turning them into '.308 Specials' is probably the most lucrative way for the CMP to dispose of them. I'm not criticizing- this is how CMP funds itself and more power to them.‚Äč
