very desirable 1965 Springfield, with a mint bore and excellent gauge numbers,
see details below along with description of all parts. No import marks. Commercial
replacement stock. This rifle is in excellent used condition.
The rifle has
been disassembled, cleaned and lubricated. Parts were clean for photos, coated
with oil and greased where appropriate when reassembled. We did test fire the
gun, and it cycled through a clip fine, ejecting it at the end.
and two M1 enbloc clips (no ammo) are included. Rifle will ship in a hard case.
