Default My M1

Here are a few pictures I took of my M1 I got back in March. I just put a few coats of BLO right on the CMP stock. Any ideas who made that En Bloc?

The pictures are just with my phone, so they’re not the best quality. For some reason they’re darker on imgur than on my phone.

Great looking rifle. The trigger housing is postwar. Nice M1 bayonet. Which make is the bayonet? I've never seen a clip marked like that either!

The bayonet is marked EN US. It is one of the 3 for $50 deals from Dupage Trading. They believe it to be German made for the Greeks. I need to find a scabbard for it.

Looks like a rebuild but can't read the etching other than "63"....perhaps a SA rebuild.
It should make for a good shooter with the 63 SA barrel.
It's a mixmaster but looks like you did ok.....Congrats!

The clip might be Taiwanese. Definitely foreign....

Is that a C? I've had one like that before from the CMP. If the indents are cut out then it's an early one.

Looks like a Lerio (sp) Cup marked enbloc. That would be a WW2 clip, one that is on a lot of want lists.

nice rifle..... my first CMP Garand was a 3.6 million with a new CMP stock..... i'll admit i was a bit bummed when i first received it because i was hoping for USGI wood.....

since then i have ordered 2 more from CMP, 1 was beautiful post war Springfield with correct barrel and perfect post war USGI wood in Dec 2017 when there were U.S. arsenal guns that went out of CMP.......

and the other was a winchester field grade June 42 built receiver that was an obvious danish return with a WWII era stock from the summer of 2017 winchester release.......

oddly enough i find myself now liking the 3.6 million with the new CMP stock the best of the 3 and really the only 1 that i shoot regularly......it really is a beautiful rifle...... when i show people who know nothing about Garands my 3 rifles, they almost always gravitate towards it, most assume its a pristine unissued WWII rifle until i explain it to them lol......... i look at it as a "CMP rebuild" with the added bonus that im the first owner since rebuild!!!! ....... i truly believe someday when CMP m1's are a memory that they will be in high demand

The CMP stock has broken in some. I used to have to use a mallet to get the trigger guard back in, now a hard smack with my hand gets it to lock up.

Default Nice rifle rebuilt by Springfield in 1963

The leg etch definitely looks like SA to me.
Many of these are really hard to make out but sometimes the barrel date can be a good clue since it is fairly common for the barrel date to predate the etch by a month or two.
I agree with Shomway that is it from 1963 and I think I see two digits for the month which would make it either October, November or December.

While there is no way to tell what the rifle has done since it was built, you at least know it was at Springfield in 1963.
