WW2 US Springfield M1 Garand 30-06 British Lend Lease rifle. Serial number in the 468 thousand range with original 12-41 barrel. Likely made in Jan-Feb of 1942. ME of 1 and TE of 2 with nice shiny bore. This is a mostly correct rifle. It has the proper early stock that is void of any cartouches but has the two digit Springfield code in the barrel channel (short channel stock). The finish on stock and proper milled handguard is old and mellow. A few places where filler was used on left side of stock and hand guard. The handguard roll pins are still staked in place lending to the originality. Proper trigger group with D28 -5SA trigger assembly/C46-6Sa safety and C46 -2SA hammer. Uncut D28 -3SA Op Rod. D28 -2SA bolt with RE4D heat lot. British export proofs on barrel along with dull crown stamp on bolt and on receiver. 8 marked follower assembly, forged bullet guide, short fork riveted follower and other small internal parts are all correct. The rear sight is a Type I lock bar used months after this one would have come off the line (flush nut would have been standard at this time), yet the patina and color match the rifle and I suspect it came back to the US like this. Proper narrow base gas cylinder with single slot lock. There is no sight seal on the front sight as you would normally see on this vintage M1. Instead the nut has been staked in place to prevent the sight from coming off…which could have been done by the British or the civilian owner once it surplused. The finish on the receiver and barrel is outstanding showing that dark green Parkerizing utilized during this period. Overall a handsome 1941/42 production US Springfield Armory M1 Garand that spent some time in England with the home guard before coming back as surplus in the US. Offered with no reserve!

TERMS:

Buyer is responsible for mailing/e-mailing FFL or C&R (if eligible) prior to shipment along with any required local paperwork (CA: COE for C&R, FOID for IL C&R etc.). Antiques (pre 1898) only require proof of age (driver’s license) unless FFL required by local/state law. FFL may be e-mailed or mailed, sorry no faxes. Antique purchases require proof of age only unless local law requires transfer through an FFL. If you bid and win you are obligated to make contact within five days and payment within 10 days as outlined by Gunbroker. Personal checks may take a few extra days to clear before shipping. Non paying bidders receive appropriate feedback. I visually inspect each item, yet all firearms should be checked by a competent gunsmith prior to firing. I try to describe the major features and flaws in each item, but please review the pictures as well. Three day non-firing inspection with refund minus shipping. Your bid acknowledges and removes all liability from the seller in the operation or use of the firearm. Please know your local laws prior to bidding and void where prohibited. If GB goes down or is limited in taking bids within 24 hours of close of auction I reserve the right to re-list item. Registered with CA DOJ for firearm transfer, but please check if approved by state of CA prior to bidding (C&R items are exempt from this restriction). Some states like NY, NJ, and CA C&R handguns must be shipped directly 01 dealer as per state laws. Sales only in USA. I ship using FEDEX and USPS. Sorry, no layaway available. I do not end my auctions early. Internet sales only, so no local pickup. However I can arrange for transfer through other local retail FFL’s in the twin cities area if needed (transfer fees may apply). If you are a new user without feedback (NR), please contact me prior to bidding.

Transfer FFL information: I will need a copy of your dealer's FFL license (or Curio & Relic license if the item is eligible). E-mail copy or mailed hardcopy only, sorry no faxes. It's your responsibility to have your dealer contact me with this information, as I cannot contact every buyer and their corresponding dealer for every sale.

NON PAYING BIDDERS: All non paying bidders will receive appropriate feedback (F rating). To avoid negative feedback, a 10% restocking fee will be assessed to cover our time and cost. Please review the description and pictures BEFORE you bid.

The best way to reach us is through e-mail. Credit card payments may be processed directly through Gunbroker's Checkout system which is secure and easy. Feel free to call directly for any reason and we will return your call within 24 hours.

We buy, sell, and take consignments on collector commercial and military firearms so please contact us for details.
