CMP Special FIELD GRADE 308 Question

Is the CMP Special FIELD GRADE in 308 simply a 30-06 that has been converted, or is this a former Navy issue? Either way, looks like a nice rifle.

It's a refurbished gun with new wooden stock and Criterion barrel. Scroll most of the way down:

http://thecmp.org/cmp_sales/rifle_sales/m1-garand/

"Receiver will have considerable pitting above the wood line". To me this sounds like they've got some decent parts left, so they're trying to make usable rifles from the parts. I suspect that they chose .308 because it's more available than .30-06.

Hmm - why not get the 30-06 version then? True enough though, 308 is more available.

If you shoot competitively, you can shoot M1A and Garand using one caliber. I wouldn't mind getting a 308 to see how it performs.

Any idea on a price? I didn't see it listed on his website and I don't want to bug the man when odds are, it will be out of my price range.

It has the field grade condition first. Which applies to the reciever and other parts. The barrel is new. Maybe the stock, but "field " grade rules apply.
