This is an absolutely beautiful WW2 veteran. A Springfield Armory M1 Garand manufacture in January 1944, S#2475505. The lighting isn't right in some of the photos but all of the finish is the original green parkerized finish. It has the following correct (and as far as I know original) parts:

Barrel 3 SA 12-43 (Correct)
Bolt: D28286-12SA (Correct)
Op Rod: D35382 9 SA, curved side (Correct)
Trigger Housing: D28290-12-SA (Correct)
Stock: SA/GAW (Correct)

I don't know about all of the small parts. It did go thru a late or post war upgrade as it does have the later T105 rear sight and the 9SA oprod has the relief cut. The SA/GAW inspection stamp has to be seen in bright light - but it's there. The bore is excellent. I don't have gauges but included a picture of a bullet in the muzzle. It comes with a WW2 era flat buckle web sling. Both the sling and the pistol grip on the buttstock have rack numbers. This is a CMP gun and comes with the CMP certificate. It is getting harder and harder to find correct WW2 M1's and the prices are getting way up there. The only flaws on this rifle are 2 hairline cracks - one on each of the handguards. I never replaced them as I thought they were part of the history of this fine veteran. The wood (handguards and stock) have numerous scratches and dings. This is a WW2 veteran here, not an unissued museum piece. My price is $1100. I am open to partial trades.

I have a trade pending on this rifle at this time. Thanks, Earl
I do have it cross listed. First to say they take it, gets it. I can be reached either thru PM or email - I'd like to do a FTF in the North Dallas area (I am in Plano).
