Springfield Rifles – M1 Garand For Sale

I really enjoyed it. These production lines were the real wonder weapons. Blastattack It would be economically impossible to make one. As a Machinist myself, that is not a project any sane person would want to take on as a job. It would be a labour of love to make.

Military production of the M1 Garand ended in at serial numbers just over 6 million. Anything numbered higher than 6. Nobody said it wouldn’t shoot well, albeit it is reasonable to presume a used USGI rifle from the CMP will outlast it many times, and be cheaper in base price, too.

If you look closely, with a magnifier, at the data legend on the receiver horseshoe behind the rear sight, near the manufacturer’s name, you will see a “circle r”, which is a copyright mark.
