Item Number:FW01164

Very rare unissued 1965 Springfield Armory rebuild M1 Garand originally manufactured in July 1943. Serial number 1713421. SA 1943 barrel with very good bore. No import marks.


This M1 has been in the possession of the original purchaser until now, in its arsenal packaging, unused. Authentication paperwork from the Department of the Army / Director of Civilian Marksmanship (DCM) is included, also the box and VCI bag that the rifle was shipped in, from Rock Island Arsenal.


Some white material is visible on parts of the rifle. This is anti-corrosion compound from the packaging. Other than the white material, the rifle is clean.


M1 Garands, like all military small arms, were rebuilt for many years after manufacture. Parts were replaced as needed, and refinishing metal was common. This rifle almost certainly has its original barrel, because a replacement with the same date as the receiver is very unlikely. Receiver and barrel were refinished, and the rifle was assembled from refinished parts, with new stock and handguards.


Sling, accessory kit noted below and all paperwork plus original box included.
