Manufactured in February of 1942, just 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 absent locking bar) on the latter. Fitted with a "SA 11-41" barrel with British lend-lease proofs, "SA" bolt, trigger guard, trigger housing, hammer, safety and uncut operating rod. The stock has no visible markings and a checkered steel buttplate.
Very fine, retains 95% plus of the original parkerized finish with some light edge wear and scattered light handling marks. The sanded and refinished wood is fine with no marking a few scattered dings and scruffs. Mechanically excellent.
