    Now is the time to order a field or IHC Service grade from the CMP. Dropped it in the mail 2/9 and received the rifle yesterday 2/16. Wanted a tractor gun and in this case, glad to have the new wood also. Barrel is oddly WWII era. Guess got put on a shelf for a while.

    The barrel is a little odd, but being late war production it must have sat a long time before being used. What barrels did IHC use? Good muzzle and throat?

    LMR barrel would be typical. CMP probably replaced a shot out barrel with stock. Muzzle 2 throat 3

    That’s a nice looking rifle.

    Will we see it on the line at some near future matches?

    Depends on how she shoots, but yea, I’ll probably give her a try.

    My HRA is a heck of a lot better than I am so it’s my usual match rifle
