Item No.: 9418 Price : SOLD
Item : EXCELLENT SPRINGFIELD MODEL OF 1922 M2 TRAINING RIFLE, .22 LR
Description :
This is an original, U.S. Model Of 1922 M2 Training Rifle manufactured at Springfield Armory in 1932 or early 1933. Originally built as a M1922M1, the rifle was arsenal upgraded to a M1922M2 as indicated by the receiver and stock markings and the "B" suffix of the serial number. This is a straight military rifle, not a DCM model, with no scope mount holes and a milled '03 type checkered butt plate. The rifle is in excellent condition with nearly 100% of its factory parkerized finish remaining. The M2 style bolt is finished armory bright. The rifle has an excellent bore and mechanics. The stock is in excellent condition as well, with just a tiny ding or two from storage. There is a crisp "SA" cartouche on the left side of the butt and a "P" firing proof on the wrist. These would have been applied during the arsenal upgrade. The barrel is dated "12-32" and a second "1" is stamped on the receiver after the original M1 designation. The Lyman 48C receiver sight is in excellent condition. The gun is fitted with an original, U.S. Model 1907 leather sling dated "1918". It is in fine condition. The leather remains flexible, but is a little dry. There is some surface cracking where the leather wraps around the swivels. This is an outstanding example of the M1922 Training Rifle. Stock no. 25257
