Looks like a NM...
 
I think someone got a good deal on this one. I was "watching" it, and would have bid more, but forgot the end time. Mike

Not listed on my SRS, but in good company.

I wonder if their could be some additional documentation in this block of NM rifles.

Hello all, I am the auction winner, I just logged in to see if I could get one of you folks to check SRS for me. To my surprise you guys you guys had a thread going about my Springfield. The rifle arrived today, I could not be more pleased with it, the condition is amazing, I do not believe it has been messed with at all. The only issue I have found is that the rear sight windage function is frozen, the knob will turn a bit in either direction, but the sight will not move. Any tips to determine if it might be a NM would be appreciated. I will work on some photos ASAP.
Thx cj

The SRS check is in the post above. The polished bolt, raceways on the receiver and follower are other signs. I would have made you pay at least a couple hundred more had I remembered the auction end time!

A reminder that those given/sold to members of the military do not usually show up on SRS. Your rifle could be one of those.

It should have a serrated trigger, fine checked butt plate and the inspector's initial with a number on top of the barrel under the triggerguard. 9-21 rifle would have no * mark on the muzzle. Looks like the guy who sold it didn't have a clue!

From the Gunbroker pictures it appears that maybe the right side of the rear sight rear indicator is pushed forward and maybe binding the rear sight from moving. If so, you may need to give the sight some clearance in that area by very slightly bending that area back.
You could also push on the rear sight as you rotate the windage knob until the sight clears that area (sorry don't know the right terminology for that part of the sight) and remove the sight. Once removed, remove the windage screw. Then put the rear sight on the pivot and check where it may be binding by rotating the sight manually left to right and back on the pivot.

Thanks all for the thoughtful replies, the rifle has the following, Polished bolt and raceways, no * on the barrel crown, serrated trigger, fine checkered butt plate, NM rear sight leaf, W.E.S. cartouch and P proof. I really don't want to pull the stock off to check for barrel numbers. I will get some photos posted soon.
