Manufactured in March of 1942, shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the formal entry of the U.S. into one of the most decisive conflicts the world has ever seen. Blade front and peep rear sights, with a protective cover on the set screw of the former and a set of early pattern adjustment drums ("BATTLE RANGE" windage and "LEFT/LEFT" elevation with closed arrows and locking bar) on the latter. Fitted with a "SA 3-42" barrel with British lend-lease proofs, "SA" bolt, trigger guard, trigger housing, hammer, safety and uncut operating rod. The stock is marked "S.A./G.H.S." and crossed cannons on the left, circled "P" on the wrist, and has a checkered steel buttplate. There are faint traces of a red paint band around the upper handguard, typical of lend-lease Garands.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 95% of the original parkerized finish with some light edge/cycling wear. The wood is very fine with numerous scattered compression dents visible on the right side of the handguard. Mechanically excellent.
