1944. This M1 has a 1951 Springfield barrel with a bright bore. Other parts are
mostly Springfield, all are described below and shown in photos. No import
This M1 is in excellent used condition. It has a new
walnut stock with a nice darker finish. New repro canvas sling and two M1
enbloc clips (no ammo) are included.
We test fired this Garand and it performed well, cycling through a full clip, ejecting the clip at the end.
