Springfield Armory M1 Garand. This is an early M1, with a five digit serial number, 44077, dating to 1940. The barrel is dated June 1946, and other parts are a mix of WWII era and postwar. No import marks. The receiver is marked "S A 12-64" (could be 62, it is quite faint), and it appears the rifle has seen little use since that rebuild. The stock is marked "S.A. SHM" with crossed cannons, along with "A4". See below for details on marked parts.
This M1 is in excellent used condition. Metal parts are reparkerized. The bore is bright and shiny with sharp riflings. The stock is very nice, it has been sanded, and has just a few dings, no cracks.
The gun has been test fired and works perfectly.
C & R Eligible.
