Default 154 to go...

at s/n 6099751, this rifle was darn near close to the end of M1 production at SA with quite a few NM indications...

the aperture is marked NM, but neither the elevation or windage knobs are.

P - Proof, T - Targeted, M - Magnetic particle test, ... J?

N M ☆ - "☆" indicates a "stricter accuracy test" (Canfield text, p 555)

if anyone can expand on the chamber area "J" mark or what is meant by the "stricter accuracy test" i would be curious to know.

Not my rifles... but I did refinish these CMP stocks for a buddy of mine...

I love the smell of Kroil in the evening.

My 1942 M1 Garand RM1Special proudly displayed in my secure Man Cave. Photos are of American and Nazi generals. Iím a nut for WWII memorabilia. I have a friend who is 91 and a vet of the liberation of the Philippines.

Received the two WRAs, SG & FG, I selected on a 4/27 visit to the TMP Pro Shop. First, highly recommend a visit to TMP, fantastic place with excellent friendly staff. I had the pro shop all to myself and after scouring the racks for an hour I decided on these two gems (to me), but there were many to choose from and it came down to the SG barrel measurements and overall finish and the USGI wood on the FG:

SN: 248900
Barrel: SA 4-47, +1/+1
Bolt: D28287-12SA S-11<>
OpRod: D35382 SA
Trigger Housing: D28290-12-SA
Hammer: C46008-1 W.R.A.
Stock: CMP

SN: 152119
Barrel: SA 3-55, +2/+4, re-crowned (by Turks?)
Bolt: 6528287-SA Z1
OpRod: D35382W.R.A.
Trigger Housing: 6528290-SA
Hammer: SA D5546008
Stock: USGI walnut, stamped RRA-D, tape residue, minimal dings/scratches. Handguards have chipping varnish/shellac. Will clean up well.

Really happy with these two.

Hey guys. I’m new here to the forum. I recently restored a sporterized K98 and ended up making a new friend and trading the k98 with boot for a very nice M1. Serial number is in the 5.8m which I found out is around 56? Can you all tell me what to look for. I’ve never owned an M1 but I instantly fell in love with how it handled/shot. Here’s some pictures

You did very well for your first M1. I have a 5 mil as well and learned that the 5 and 6 mil rifles are NM so I'm told . It looks like you have USGI wood (Walnut) with a DAS and that's as good as gold. At the moment USGI wood is in big demand and you may have seen the last of it. I really can't tell you much more about it. There are plenty of knowledgeable people on this forum that can give better input with better pictures

Hey thanks for the reply. This may be a blonde moment but what is NM? I really wanted to get one in the 40’s range as I love WWII memorabilia. But the M1 has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid. Now that i have one I know why. The stock on this one is beautiful in my opinion. I had a choice of 2 M1s when I traded for this. The other one looked brand new. Stock, reciever, barrel and all. But this one felt right when I shot it and I like the look better. I stripped the gun a few minutes ago and found it’s all SA but the hammer and trigger guard. They are W.R.A
