Very nice example of a late WW2 M1 Garand. This is a Springfield
Armory M1, serial number 3557xxx, manufactured in March 1945. Barrel is
Springfield dated February 1945, bore is excellent. This M1 has all correct
parts for the manufacture date as best as we can determine, including the SA
NFR marked stock. All parts are described below and shown in photos. No rebuild
or import marks.
The Garand is in excellent used condition. Original finish on receiver and barrel shows minimal use, see all photos for details. The M1 has been disassembled, cleaned and lubricated. Parts were clean for photos, coated with oil and greased where
appropriate when reassembled.
Two M1 enbloc clips (no ammo) are included. Rifle will
ship in a foam lined hard plastic case.
