Item No.: 8555 Price : SOLD
Item : FINE, AS BUILT, WWII, SPRINGFIELD M-1 GARAND RIFLE
Description :
This is an original, WWII U.S. M-1 Garand Rifle manufactured by Springfield Armory in April of 1945. It is chambered for the .30-06 Government cartridge. The rifle retains all WWII parts with no evidence of a post-war rebuild. The rifle has the Battle Bar rear sight and an uncut op rod. All parts are of correct Springfield manufacture. The stock is a wartime Springfield field replacement stock. As such, it has no "P" proof or Inspector's cartouche, but instead, has a small 3/16" ordnance escutcheon on the base of the pistol grip. This marking was only used at Springfield Armory. The barrel is dated "4-45". The rifle is in very fine condition. It retains more than 95% of its armory parkerized finish. There is a bit of wear on the gas cylinder, typical of wartime Garands. The alloy used in the cylinders did not allow the finish to adhere well. The mechanics are excellent. The trigger group remains tight in the stock. The bore is fair to good. The barrel is original to the rifle and there is some light pitting towards the muzzle end. The rifling remains visible along its length. The barrel gauges "3" at the muzzle and "3" at the throat. The stock is in fine condition, with just a few tiny dings and scratches from use. The stock is stamped with the military rack number "58" behind the receiver and on the toe. Included is an original, OD web M-1 Sling. M-1 Rifles with all WWII parts are difficult to find. Here is your chance to own the rifle George Patton called "The Greatest Battle Implement Ever Devised". Stock no. 21951
