This Springfield Armory M1 Garand rifle was manufactured in July of 1942 and subsequently arsenal modified to M1D configuration. The M1D was the standard Army sniper rifle from the mid-1950s until the late 1960s. M1D rifles remained in the inventories of some Army National Guard units and Special Forces groups until the early 1990s. The rifle is fitted with a standard blued M84 2.2 power telescopic sight with post and cross-wire cross-hairs, sliding sun shield, and rubber eyepiece. The stock is fitted with a russet leather cheek-piece stamped "MRT" on the right. The rifle has the special M1D barrel with scope mounting block and marked "S-A-1-52" on the right of the chamber. "SA" marked trigger housing and "-2SA" bolt. Matching number "206" is stamped on top of both the forend and handguard, "4782" is stamped on the right of the buttstock, and two encircled "P" proof marks are visible on the bottom of the pistol grip. The included telescopic sight has a plate on the right side marked "TELESCOPE/M84/SERIAL NO. 4806". Includes M5 bayonet, scabbard, modern custom wooden crate with brass plaque on the lid, two M1907 slings, cleaning kit, two oil bottles, three manuals, approximately twelve stripper clips and five en bloc clips, two camo paint sticks, four cloth bandoliers, first aid kit, shaving brush, dummy grenade, mess kit stove, two partial packs of vintage Camel cigarettes, and two U.S. shoulder patches (7th Armored Division, U.S. Army Europe-Africa).
Very fine as arsenal upgraded/converted to M1D configuration, retains 97% arsenal parkerized finish with some light handling marks. The refurbished stock is fine as re-oiled with some scattered light dents, and some finish wear underneath the leather cheek-piece. Mechanically excellent. Scope is excellent, retains 95% original blue finish with clear optics. Included cheek piece is very fine.
