    Absolutely, I use to own a Winchester bolt action 30-06 and the M1. The Winchester kicked harder with a rubber butt pad than the M1 with a steel plate. Another advantage of the weight, as it absorbed the energy it allowed the shooter to come back on target that much quicker. A real plus in a battle situation. Another benefit is that is was built heavy duty. That meant it could be abused, dropped, used as a club and still function flawlessly. Down side, was you had to lug it around.

    But to me, they are just so cool. I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas Day. Don't know when I will get her. Just placed the order yesterday.

    You probably already know about Civilian Marksmanship Program. They have an online store that allows you to purchase WW-II Military Surplus Rifles and parts directly. You have to meet the requirements to place the order but you are not required to have or use a FFL dealer.

    Requirements:

    Proof of US Citizenship
    Proof of Age
    Membership in CMP affiliated organization
    Participate Marksmanship or other Firearms related activity
    Be legally eligible to purchase firearms

    This is true. There is a sticky about it somewhere I think. You don't want to get banned for breaking the rules. haha

    Re: New member from Everett

    Thanks guys. I will try to remember that rule. Is that anything like the 5 second rule? Because I have a Mitchel Arms AK22, preban rifle that I am planning on selling so that I can get a lever action 30-30 instead.

    When you get ready to sell or trade you will need to upgrade to a gold or platinum membership to post in the for sale section. with the platinum membership you can get into the chat area that can be funny as hell. If you want help when it comes time to sell you can get hold of me and I can help you with the ad and posting pictures. Welcome to the sight
