Smile ** WITHDRAWN ** WTT: 1956 - 6.08 mil M1 Garand

** Rifle has been withdrawn **

It is truly a nice 1956 Springfield within the 6.08xxxx range
Rifle is an Ex Air Force Premium Grade Match barreled action
it is marked " AFPG " on the barrel and with polished chamber and
underside as well.

During a break down and logging of parts I found rifle to have all SA parts with the exception of 2, and those being (1) Safety is HRA and (2) Hammer is HRA

* Rifle is from CMP and will have the Certificate and papers incuded
* TE-2
* ME-1
* New CMP Stock and lock up is tight and makes a nice fit,
(I was surprised to see such a nice fit better then most)
* 1952 Web Sling so marked
* CMP Green Hard Case
* Front and Rear Sight Protectors (white)
* There is detente hole at the 6:00 position at windage on the receiver
* Bore is Bright, Shiny, with good lands/grooves
* Barrel markings SA F6535448 P 9 54 A21-C

I have fire 6 full sets of enblocs through the rifle (48 rds)
it functioned flawlessly without any issues. Accuracy was
very surprising. If this doesn't trade off, I'll just keep it, its that nice a shooter

I've taken a lot of photo's of the rifle and I will let them tell the condition
of the rifle. If there is some part or section of the rifle you want more info on
just ask and I will do my best to help.

Value: $1250 (FFL-01 or FFL-03 C&R license required to ship)


Some Trade Interests

* UTAS UTS-15 Shotgun

* DSA STG-58 or DSA SG58 FAL


* Rifle posted on other boards as well

Default 6.08m

Neat rifle, and somewhat rare as a former AFPG. In mid to late 2012 CMP sold several former NM and AFPG rifles that had lost their original stocks, but retained their barrels and some other parts like NM op rod rods, and it looks like you got a good one from that time period. Nice price for such a rifle. (I have a similar former AFPG from that period too, but its a 3M SA).

PS: To restore the 1/2 windage adjustments, a windage knob with 8 detents instead of 4 will be needed. Cutting 3 coils off a bolt's extractor spring will serve as the detent to fit in that hole at 6 o'clock.

Thanks so much for the information, I appreciate it very much.

Apprently there is a mis understanding, I have the rifle listed as
WTT meaning "Want to Trade" Ive not decided to sell the rifle outright
at this time. I also noted in my main body of post my trade interests

If listing a WTT item is not acceptable on the CMP forum then my apologizes
I will remove my listing immediately. Sorry for any misunderstandings
