Fitted with an early GI manufacture M1D barrel marked "SA-1-52" on the side and drawing number "D7312555" on top of the barrel under the handguard. Receiver marked "U.S. RIFLE/CAL 30 M1/SPRINGFIELD ARMORY/2007090". The barrel is also stamped with "T" and "P" proofs indicating it was "targeted" and proof fired by Springfield Armory.

Late post-war rear sight marked "DRC" on the right side, wide base gas cylinder and a post war gas cylinder lock.

It comes with an original early issue blued GI M84 sniper scope marked "TELESCOPE M84 SERIAL NO. 4591" and complete with an original rubber eye protector. The consignor noted that the front handguard was unitized by an AMU armorer, and it is fitted with an original T-37 prong flash hider. The trigger housing also has a very tight clamping action on the stock. This very nice looking original M1D rifle that comes with a letter form the CMP indicating it was sold in August, 2007.
|Condition||Very fine with 98% of the arsenal refurbished/parkerized finish with only minor edge and high spot wear with thinning on the outside of the gas cylinder. The stock and handguard are both in very fine plus condition with a nice dark matching color overall, nice clear and distinct stock cartouche and firing proof, and some light handling marks/pressure dents on the sides form field use and handling by the CMP. The scope retains 98% plus of its original blue finish overall with some minor wear on the windage and elevation knob covers. The optics are clear; however, there are small black specs around the edges typical of these early issue M84 scopes. Mechanically excellent and looks like it would make a great shooter and collector rifle.|
