I've been under a gun buying ban ever since I went a little crazy with the Southern Connection S&W's. I ended up with "several" of them but one came along today that I couldn't resist. I prefer original milsurp guns but this one was to nice to pass on plus the price was right. It's a CMP Special grade with a 1944 Springfield receiver, a Criterion barrel and a CMP stock. The individual got it from CMP several years ago and said he fired less that 50 rounds through it. It's in near mint condition. All the parts are Springfield except the windage knob and op rod. Both are IHC.
