For those that are not that into all things IHC, which included the M1 Garand rifle, the CMP-civilian marksmanship program, has opened up a second round of selling these unicorns.

I got my dream order in for one so now it's just a sit and wait to see if I hit the lottery and win one.

No "sold out" email has been received yet.
Doesn't mean they don't already have enough orders to fill them all tho.

Can you get ammo for those vintage rifles. Seems I have read that the standard issue 30-06 modern rounds are too powerful for those rifles. The ejection system gets worn out too quick or something to that effect. Cool rifle though.

There's still some milsurp rounds out there. CMP sells it and most gun shows have it available.

all major ammo makers still make rounds for target, competition and hunting.
30.06 is still a pretty common/desired round.

I have an IHC M-1 Garand that was re chambered in 7.62x51 NATO. It's a very similar round to the .308 and looks VERY similar, but you CANNOT shoot .308 out of my rifle. The round is slightly smaller and has a much higher pressure. 7.62 is a little harder to find than .30-06.

Though, all standard issue garands are chambered in the original .30-06, readily available, though not cheap when you consider $8-10 every time you load 8 rounds.

It's easily the most fun gun I own, I hope you can get one!

I Have a M1 Garand, although Not an IHC, (hope to add one of those). I reload my own 30.06 for it. They are fun to shoot and a piece of U.S.A. History.

I had heard that the modern 30-06 rounds were too powerful for the M-1 and would wear out the ejection mechanism. Supposedly the rifle could be modified to use the modern rounds. So did we ever get the rifle?

Just arrived today.
It's the opposite of my last one.
It was almost all correct parts with the IH stock.
This one is beautiful with a brand new walnut stock, IH receiver and bolt, LMR barrel but most other parts are mix and matched during the armory process.
So I think this one will be my IH shooter and keep my original IH for the shelf.

I also found a guy that does a lot of custom engraving and he duplicated the M1 heel stamp so here is mine for my custom coffee cups.

Very nice rifle. One of these days I will get one of those so it can ride in the gun rack in my Scout.

There is a risk of damaging the op rod if you run commercial loads. The pressure curve isn't the same. In order to run those, you would have to get an adjustable gas plug. Pretty easy fix. I hand load for everything, so I just load milspec rounds. I do have an adjustable plug if I want to load something hotter.

Nice rifles Bill! Hope you enjoy shooting them as much as I enjoy shooting mine. I got me a nice doe this past deer season from 230 yds with my tractor rifle.

I have always wanted an IHC M1, but my friends always try to talk me out of it saying that they were never the most reliable. My response is always :censored: you!!!! Its says IHC that makes it the coolest rife anyone could ever own I dont care about the reliability I wanna hang it up in the rear window of my truck! lol.

Great to see that there are others who appreciate a fine weapon made by one of the best companies to ever grace the U.S. :beer:

I have had my IHC Garand for about 12 years and I love it! I can shoot the nuts off a mosquito with it.
A great piece of American history and IHC history all in one!

There is a "Ported Gas Plug" available that allows you to shoot modern commercial ammo with less risk of damage to the op-rod but I play it safe and either shoot surplus stuff or the new commercial M1 Garand specific ammo made my American Eagle(Federal) and PPU and Hornady. It has been decent ammo for me so far.

That's a nice rifle Bill! I hope you enjoy it! :beer:

I received my new IH Garand coffee mugs to go with the rifles. I think they came out great.

I'm hoping someday when I actually retire, I can take my rifles and compete in some of the "as built" class of military shooting competitions.

As to the reliability......The M1 is revered as one of the best rifles used in combat. All manufacturers built the rifle to the same specs and all parts are interchangeable between all makes. So the design of the Garand is very dependable and all makes are equal. Saying a Garand is unreliable is like saying an IH is unreliable. It all comes down to who is taking care of it.

Here's a link to the ported plug and commercial ammo.

Bump. Just got the email from CMP today and was excited for about a minute. Unfortunately, they aren't offering the service grade this time. From what I've read field grade can be in really poor condition.

I got that too. If I had $1000 to burn I might have, but then I thought... No.

Yep, I really considered it if nothing more then to cull a couple IH parts off for my SG IH and then sell it on Gun broker for a profit like most others are doing.
But I have one for the Son and myself now and that's all I really wanted.
Kind of wished I would have went for the gap letter last time just to have something different.
