Default April 1943 M1 Rifle Receiver

I have an April 1943 barrel in original condition and I am looking for a Springfield Armory receiver in SN range 1469177 - 1547452 to match it. I want the receiver to have the original grey green WWII parkerization. The rifle I am building is a tribute rifle in honor of dear friend of mine who just recently passed away this week. He served in WWII and had a considerable amount of postwar service. He influenced me in more ways than one and taught me what a real man should be. If any one can help I would appreciate it

did you send an email to the south/north store with your criteria and see if a stripped receiver is available in the range for sale?

Does the CMP sell original WWII stripped receivers? I was under the impression that they don't select parts and pieces out for you. I also heard that they don't have if any WWII M1's around anymore, just postwar garands. When I looked on their website it seemed the only sold reparked receivers?

Check the bottom of Garand section, but they are reparked receivers, you can request a WW2 receiver and CMP will try to get you what you are seeking.

At this point I am open to service grade rifles that are within serial number range of April of 1943. The receiver has to be in original condition NO REPARK. The other parts don't matter considering I will probably be parting it out later.

You know, the barrel dates varied by 2 - 3 months from the receiver manufacturer.

From what I've read, you'd be correct to put that barrel on a receiver dating March - June 1943 or so.

But, if you're insistent.....
