Springfield Armory M1 Garand Rifle.
This is a 1942 Springfield Armory M1 Rifle. It is not an original rifle as the operating rod has a relief cut and it has a late Poppet type Gas plug. It also has a Benicia Arsenal rebuild mark on the stock. I would consider it a restoration rifle as the lockbars should have been discarded during rebuild. We have fired this rifle and is functions 100% with all the Lake City and HXP M2 ball ammunition that we fired.
