Well I set my alarm for pm instead of am so got a hr late start this morning. So did not make it to store till about 9:30. More people than expected but not bad. I walked in door and found two barreled 1903 Springfield actions. One said no headspace and bent receiver. Other did not say if headspaced . But had decent looking barrel. Bore was dark . They were $100 each. I bought the ria 2-18 barrel dated one. Hope it will headspace. Looked through rack grades and found about 5 dated built in WW II . Barrels were 51-52 dated .I put one behind counter and then looked at the few service grades. Only about 8 Springefields. I came home with a 1940 receiver with a 1944 barrel with gi wood all machining and it had a usmc armored tag still hanging on it from 1965 . There were a couple with this tag .

Or perhaps a month early.

Good to see that the SA SGs are back, even in limited numbers. Hope this is not short-term temporary.

When I was down there on the 22nd of last month there was only one SG with GI wood, I'm guessing that a few more made their way out in the past few weeks. Thanks for the report!

Sorry about wrong date. Was typing on a iphone and did not pay attention. There was only about 7-8 service grade on the rack. There were a few more with the USMC armoroer tag hanging on them. I took mine apart real quick a little while ago. It is a springfield receiver and barrel, But just about everything else is hra. And all these parts look brand new!Has a milled triger guard and all i can find on it is a large S on one side.Wood all matchs perfect but has been sanded. Original park it looks like or at least not greek!lol. Still has dries cosmo on most areas . I looked at the garand drill rifles. They had i guess about 8-10. There were about 3 0r so that did not have the end welded together up by the gas thing. (Not that familair with garands).lol Two with wood stocks ,rest were plastic. The team there were very fast with processing orders. Al

Another note, there were about 5 WWII dated serial numbers in the field grade racks. 51-52 dated barrels. There were a ton of HRA but did not even look at them. They also had 1903 and 1903A3 receivers bare for sale for $75- $100. maybe 10 or so? rough shape. Al

and the hang tag makes it a rifle that was in USMC possession.

"that is my story and I'm sticking to it" I debated getting one also - no DAS left on the wood but nice finish with original bbl, so I pulled the trigger so to speak.
