Pretty straightforward. You need:
  • Proof of citizenship (i.e. birth certificate)
  • Membership of an affiliated club (local or national org)
  • Proof of firearms training (ex: hunter safety)

"Hardest" part is the affiliated club membership. This can be a national org such as Garand Collectors Assoc, Glock Shooting Sports Assoc. Sometimes local ranges and clubs are too. Find a CMP Affiliated Club!

Submit notarized paperwork and payment, the green rifle case will show up. You can attach a post it note if you're looking for something specific and the CMP crew will do their best, but generally it's luck of the draw. Another option is to visit one of their stores in person, or have someone visit and pick one out for you. Several folks on the CMP forums will do this for a nominal fee ($25-60), and this allows you to really fine tune your rifle. I've done this and was very happy with the result.

It may have had an unofficial "field" mod done to it. Which was very frowned upon at the time, since it could get the GI in question seriously injured.

Mint flavor:




green fiberglass tastes minty but don't let the metal fenders touch your fillings.

I bought ammo from them, don't remember if that required club affiliation, but since I was an active peace officer at the time, they accepted that.

EDIT: Actually, here's an excerpt from their rules, looks like they also accept active or prior service in the military.

"Membership in many of these organizations costs $25.00 or less and can be accomplished online. A listing of affiliated organizations can be found by clicking on our Club Search web page at http://ct.thecmp.org/app/v1/index.php?do=clubSearch. If you have any difficulty in locating a club, please contact the CMP at 256-835-8455 or by emailing CMP Customer Service. We will find one for you. In addition to shooting clubs, the CMP also has several special affiliates. Membership in these organizations satisfies our requirement for purchase. These special affiliates include: Congressionally chartered veterans' organizations such as the VFW, AL, DAV, MCL, etc. U.S. Military services (active or reserves), National Guard, to include retirees. Professional 501(c)3 law enforcement organizations and associations such as the FOP, NAPO, NSA, etc."

can you have someone else shoot the gun? that way you could rule out the limp wristing thing.

Just took it apart again and looked at the extractor under a magnifying glass. It does not appear "perfect". By that I mean its does not appear completely uniform in shape. Think I'll see about getting a replacement for it and see if that solves the problem.
In the mean time I may have someone else run a few mags through it to see if it is "me". Don't really think it is as although I'm not an expert I do shoot a fair amount (M&P 9mm, Buckmark .22, P238) and don't have any issues with any of the other guns. I'm not "hesitant" in shooting the 23 but after 50 rounds or so, the others are just more enjoyable to shoot. I practice with each that I intend as SD guns to remain proficient, including the 23.
Thanks to all that have replied. It has been helpful. I'll let you guys know when I get it sorted out.
Update for anyone following my issue with the G23. Took it to the range Sunday and got it to replicate the issue only twice out of 75 rounds. Think it may be the magazine as it occured when I started with only 5 rounds in my 13 round magazine. Same issue repeated with only the one magazine. I'm going to get a kit and rebuild both magazines. Hope it finally solves the problem. I also paid very close attention to my form so I really don't think I'm limp wristing it at all. No malfunctions at all with the one magazine.

Sounds like you’re on the right track with the magazine rebuilds, especially because new mags are close to impossible to find. I had a similar problem with a new G19 Gen 4 that I purchased about a year ago. I had frequent FTEs and even some double feeds. I know your 23 is older and a different caliber than my 19 but a couple of easy fixes I did that solved my problems may help you.
  • Added grip tape from Talon Grips – I’m a relatively new shooter and my main concern was that my grip was the cause of the failures.
  • Changed to Mil-Comm synthetic grease to lube my slide. I use it very sparingly, just a pin head drop on the slide rails.
  • Changed to higher pressure ammo – started using +P ammo with a heavier weighted bullet.

Since I made these three changes I haven’t had one FTE or FTF and have shot around 2K rounds. Granted myG19 is new and has the new spring, it’s smaller caliber than your 23 and probably failed for different reasons.

I just started reloading for .204 Ruger. No one has brass for any kind of reasonable price. In fact it is just as cheap to buy factory loads as it is to get new brass. Small rifle primers are next to impossible to get and powders for published loads are rarely available.

That said, I love the .204 Ruger. No recoil and extremely accurate. I have a Ruger Hawkeye in .204 Ruger. I love this gun!
