The CMP has announced that the annual limit on M1 Garand purchases will now be 8, down from 12. Not only that, but any Garand receiver with a SN will count toward the limit, so that includes drill rifles, bare receivers, etc. Not that it'll affect my buying strategy, as I can't justify buying that many Garands in a single year. But it's likely an indication the CMP is nearing the end of its supply of serviceable Garands. The reduced limit would stretch out the supply, but coupled with the proliferation of CMP furniture on what's being sent out these days, the writing is on the wall for nice keepers, I'm afraid.
