Price: $3,700.00
Vietnam Era Sniper Rifle
Item Number: FW01384
Availability: SOLD.

Springfield Armory M1D Garand sniper rifle with USGI M84 scope and mount and leather cheekpad. Late WWII receiver, serial number 3819xxx dates to June 1945. Springfield barrel dated July 1951 with a beautiful bore. All parts are described below and shown in photos. No import marks.

This M1D was built at Tooele Army Depot in Utah in 1968. The right receiver leg is marked “TE 12-68” in electropencil. Toole built M1Ds in late 1968-mid 1969 during the Vietnam war. This M1D likely never went into combat and in fact appears unused since built as M1D, other than our test firing. The rifle was originally purchased as an M1D service grade combo package from the CMP (Civilian Marksmanship Program). A certificate of authenticity from the CMP is included. Also included are two M1 enbloc clips and a USGI canvas scope carrying case. The rifle will ship in a foam lined hard case.


SPECS:


Receiver: marked “D 28291 35” on leg, heat lot 090B. Leg also hand engraved “TE 12-68”. Excellent condition, no pitting.

Barrel: marked “S-A-7-51” in op rod slot, and “P” with punch mark. Also marked “D731255 41 A150” on top, with “M” and small crossed cannons stamp. Bore is bright like new, rifling and crown excellent. External finish is in excellent condition. The lack of an op rod “rub” on the barrel, other than our test firing, indicates very little use since this rifle was built as an M1D.
