Review This Item
Price: $1,550.00
Late Production M1
Item Number: FW01393
Availability: In Stock.

Springfield Armory M1 Garand 57975xx, manufactured about 1955. SA 1-55 barrel with mint bore and excellent gauge numbers. All marked parts are Springfield, all are described below and shown in photos. No import marks.

This M1 is in excellent used condition. The barrel and receiver appear to have original finish, and are in nearly new condition. The rifle has hardly ever been fired – note condition of the barrel’s gas port, op rod piston, and gas cylinder lock screw.

Sling and two M1 enbloc clips (no ammo) are included.

The rifle has been disassembled, cleaned, lubricated, and test fired. Parts were clean for photos, coated with oil and greased where appropriate when reassembled.

 

SPECS:

Receiver: marked “F 6528291” on leg, heat lot A53, no pitting, original finish very good with a little wear at corners. Marked on top with serial number and “U.S. RIFLE CAL. 30 M1 SPRINGFIELD ARMORY”.

Barrel: marked “SA F6535448 1 55 A217B” with 3 “P” marks, punch mark and misc. letters in op rod slot. Very likely original to the receiver. Bore, crown and rifling are excellent. Chrome pads at gas port, chamber in the white.
