Description:

This Springfield Armory M1 Garand rifle was manufactured in December of 1943 and subsequently arsenal modified to M1D configuration. 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/3-69" on the right side. The rifle has the special M1D barrel with scope mounting block and marked "S A 11 52" on the right of the chamber. "SA" marked trigger housing and "-12SA" bolt. 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. 30467". This rifle was probably overhauled and assembled to M1D configuration at an Army Ordnance Depot in the 1960s. 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.

Rating Definition:

Very fine as arsenal converted to M1D configuration, retains 98% arsenal parkerized finish with a few minor spots of surface freckling and some light handling marks. The refurbished stock is fine as re-oiled with some light handling marks. Mechanically excellent. Scope is excellent, retains 98% original blue finish with clear optics. Included cheek piece is very fine.
