Manufactured in August or September of 1941, Garands that were in the U.S. inventory before America's formal entry into World War II are often difficult to find in any condition, having seen hard use in one of the most critical conflicts in the history of the nation and the world. 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, absent locking bar) on the latter. Fitted with a "S-A 8-41" barrel, "SA" bolt, trigger guard, trigger housing, hammer, safety and uncut operating rod. The stock is marked "S.A./G.H.S." and crossed ordnance cannons on the left, circled serifed "P" on the wrist, and has a checkered steel buttplate. Provenance: The Allan Cors Collection
Excellent, retains 90% plus of the original parkerized finish with the balance having thinned to a smooth grey patina, primarily near the muzzle. 70% of the original anodized finish. The wood is very fine with some minor dings and scratches scattered throughout. Mechanically excellent. A solid representative example of a World War II M1 Garand semi-automatic rifle!
