An authentic M1D obtained through the CMP auction in 2003. A documented rifle, not one put together. As shown on the invoice, it did not come with the scope, mount, cheek pad, or flash hider.

The rifle is listed as a service grade and appears very little used since re-build. The metal finish is excellent, with most parts appearing excellent to new. The handguards are solid. Only the buttstock does not match the condition, with a few rough spots plus the usual small dents and handling marks.

The receiver is a 2.8 million Springfield. There's no rust or pitting or problems. It's a June 1969 rebuild according to the electric pencil mark on the right receiver leg. The finish on the receiver is 100%, with just some thinning starting to show on the right side where the op rod touches. Inside the receiver, the finish hasn't worn yet. See the photos.

The gas cylinder has a nice black finish with almost no finish wear. It mates solidly to the barrel and does not move at all. It has a narrow sight base. The stacking swivel screw is staked and has not been removed. The gas cylinder lock looks new also.

The curved side -9 op rod finish matches the receiver and remains near new, with only some finish worn on the edge of the handle. The piston looks good and the receiver tab isn't worn. The bottom of the barrel shows only faint finish wear from contact with the op rod.

The trigger assembly looks unused. The finish has not yet worn on the hammer and sear engagement surfaces.

The -12 bolt finish is the same color as the receiver. The extractor and ejector are blued.

The rear sight appears new and is tight. The aperture is a good fit to the base, with minimal play when raised

The barrel is dated 9-52. The bore looks good, with strong rifling. It is clean and shiny throughout, with no traces of copper. The throat erosion is about 2.5 on my GI gauge, as shown in the photo. The crown looks good, not worn or recessed from being re-cut.

The handguards are walnut and match nicely, with the rear being only very slightly lighter in color. Both are solid, with no splits or defects and good edges, not appearing to have been sanded. They both show small dents from handling, but nothing deep or ugly or distracting. The sling swivel screw is staked and does not look to have ever been unscrewed. The buttstock is walnut. It's good overall. The lower portion, from the pistol grip down, is nice. It's smooth, has very few dents, and a displays a nice, sharp open box SA stamp. Now forward of the grip, the stock is more rough. The mid section, mostly, shows more dents, notably on the left side, where there's a couple rough spots where the stock curves from the side to the bottom. See the photos. Not terrible, but not as attractive as the rest of the stock. I think some or much of this would steam out, improving the appearance quite a bit. Forward of that, the stock has the usual small handling dents and marks. Nothing bad. The buttplate looks good and fits the stock well. It's not a new refinished part, but more likely original to this stock.

I'm selling the rifle on consignment. The owner purchased it from the CMP auction in December 2003 and kept it in the box, as-received. It has not been shot since he purchased it. The invoice and CMP certificate are included.

The rifle was shipped with a cotton web sling, a clip, and some papers, which are all included. The sling is in good condition. See the photos. I couldn't find any markings on it.

Overall a solid M1D in very good condition with documentation.

Given the excellent barrel and the smooth trigger, I'd expect this to be a fine shooter if you wanted to fire it. Note that I put only a dab of lube in the action, keeping the rest dry, as shipped from CMP. So if you do fire it, be sure to apply some grease to the usual places first.

The buyer pays only the actual shipping and insurance cost, no "handling" fees. Should be about $35 or less depending on your ZIP code.

I must collect sales tax or a resale certificate from California buyers.

A personal check is OK if you don't mind waiting ten banking days before shipment. If you're in a hurry, use a money order or bank check.

E-mail if you have any questions about the rifle. Note that I can't access my e-mail every day, so don't despair if I don't answer right away.
