Right now the CMP website says they are sold out of most of their garands. I think they only have "Expert Grade" and "Rack Grade" left. I was hoping to order a Service grate this winter. But it looks like that's not gonna happen. Hopefully they are just backed up and not actually sold out.
They are just backed up and not releasing any new rifles until they are reasonably caught up. I'm sure every Garand reseller put in their max orders in the last year under their multiple accounts. Free money for them.

FYI I just got a CMP Garand (love it). But delivery time was a lot longer than 7 weeks these days. I ordered in mid-May, gun shipped in early-October. So call it about 20 weeks before it was on the doorstep.
Mine showed up today as well! I'm going to give a better report its condition and the timeline in a day or so once I've had time to review it all.

What'd you get?

Eli
Springfield Armory Service grade

$750 delivered. I originally ordered a Field Grade for $650 but was contacted last week with an offer to upgrade my order for $100 to get it out the door, since mine had been on order since June.

Serial # 5,336,XXX - which makes this a 1954-1955 production rifle
Hanging tag advises:
  • Muzzle Reading: 1+
  • Throat Reading: 2
  • Rifle Grade: RM1 Service

Ordered: June 7th, 2021
Processed: October 26th, 2021
Billed: November 4th, 2021
Shipped: November 8th, 2021
Total time: 22 weeks

I'm pretty stoked about the whole affair. I may even try my hand at shooting competitively with it soon. Until then I have lots of research to do.

They have this listed right on their site..

“Our rifle inventory is limited at this time due to our log of backorders and the 7 week CMP shutdown due to COVID-19. Our stores were stocked before we left for quarantine and we did not pull the stock back because it would slow all processes. We hope to open up rifle types again once we have restocked our inventory and processed the majority of our backorders.”

I ordered an expert grade .308 and it shipped to my FFL within a month of me submitting the papers.
308 expert are shipping out a lot faster than the original service grades and such. I had a mail in order since August and I called and switched it over to a 308 expert and I had my rifle within 3 weeks.
