Very cool!

I like the way the grain of the wood flows straight back through the stock.  That stock looks strong as an ox!

So, what is it?  SA?  H&R?  Winchester?  IH? 

Now you need the clips, the GI sling and some ammo and then cleaning/lubing supplies/tools.

Have you got a copy of the GI FM for pictures/instructions on disassembly, cleaning, sight adjustment, etc?

Great rifles.  Once you start shooting it, you'll find out you'll want another one.  Or two.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

Ammo, sling, and enbloc clips on order.  Need to investigate cleaning requirements

Really nice, every time I pick one of those up I wonder about their history.

 8) Yes You Are!!!

I went to the CMP a couple years back to get one & stumbled on an M1 Carbine instead; so I still don't have one of those. Congrates, I need a new visit...
