FG & SG arrived today.

FG: SA 4361395 SA 12-53 barrel MR: 3+/TR: 2+ USGI RIA stock, IHC trigger group w/Turk dope taped in, IHC bolt, HRA OpRod









Some Turkish armorer like sanding!

SG: HRA 5660435 SA 3-44 barrel (?!) MR:3/TR:4 CMP stock, SA A-15 bolt, SA trigger group (with tape residue from Turk dope, I assume), SA OpRod





How unusual is it to have an HRA with a SA wartime barrel?

I was fortunate enough to go to the CMP myself and hand pick my Garand. A Field Grade rifle with a six digit serial number dating it between May and June of 1941. And it measured a 1+ at the muzzle and a 2 at the throat. IHC Op Rod and Bolt with an LMR barrel. I don’t even mind the Hackberry stock as it is the darker brown coloring and is quite beautiful to look at.

I do plan on eventually making it all Springfield and Date Correct except for possibly the barrel.

I am glad to be a part of this great community and look forward to learning from you all!

Latest CMP Service Grade arrived today. Springfield Armory with a June 1944 production receiver and a July 1953 LMR barrel. Muzzle is 2+, Throat is a 3. Turk return with the typical shiny gas cylinder. New CMP wood. I have disassembled, cleaned, inspected, greased and reassembled. I am now ready for a range day. Not the best luck of the draw but certainly not the worst I have had. Photos in the link:

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.

thanks...gary

That is an absolutely sweet HRA you have there. The wood may have been damaged and unusable for various reasons lost to time, because it looks like CMP wood, but that receiver is near mint. Only very very slight wear. When you remember how old even the post war Garands are, it just amazes me when I see one that looks like it could have been shipped from the factory just a month or two ago. Very nice. Hope I am as lucky.

The wartime barrel was either from a damaged receiver or most likely just from an old stockpile of spare parts from the WW2 era. They not only made the rifles but many thousands and thousands of spare parts. Some were stored and they just never got around to using all of them. Usually the WW2 era parts would have been used up in post war rebuilds long ago. Some parts from that era probably slipped through and were just never used. The manufacturers even in the post WW2 era worked together and sometimes did use parts from one another. You got both a WW2 era and a post war all in one rifle!
