Originally up for consideration by the Netherlands Purchasing Commission as a service weapon for colonial troops in the Dutch East Indies, a large order for the Johnson Rifle was placed in 1940, but the Japanese invasion of the East Indies prevented delivery. A number of these Dutch Johnsons were procured by the U.S. Marine Corps as a substitute for the M1 Garand and saw action in the Pacific. Blade front and adjustable 1,000 meter rear sight, with the five line model and five line patent markings on top of the receiver, and a five-pointed star over "CRANSTON/ARMS/CO." in a triangle on the right side below the rear sight. The barrel is marked ".30-06/41" on the flange and "JA/30-06" on the underside of the chamber. Fitted with a two piece stock featuring a steel buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Excellent with 97% of the original finish showing some light edge wear and handling marks overall. The stock is very fine with some mild dents and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
