Was there yesterday afternoon. Only real change from last detailed report would be in the form of a few more M1 drill's added to the selection. There were five field special's left and only one had some pitting. These are in my opinion really nice rifles for $200 less then the special's.

Talking Range Report on my 6 Mil. M1

Today was a nice day in the Detroit area, so I took my new 6 Mil. Springfield M1 out to the range. As mentioned last week, the receiver is from 1957 and the Springfield barrel was made in March of 1967. The barrel has an ME of 0 and a TE of 1.0. I also added a NOS bolt that I bought at Camp Perry last July.

The results, in my opinion, were outstanding. I was able to shoot minute of angle groups, consistently, at 100 yards, using three different 168 grain hand-load recipes, (Nosler, Hornady and Sierra Tipped Match-King). The brass and primers were mixed LC, RP, HXP and a few others.

I have another Springfield, from 1944, with a NOS 1951 Springfield barrel, but it doesn't come close to this rifle. These results made me wonder if I somehow got one of those unmarked NM M1s that I've heard about. I know some 6 Mil M1s were turned into NM rifles, but I see no NM marks anywhere on this rifle. Or, maybe its because of all of the "brand new" parts in this rifle. Whatever it is, I am a very happy shooter. Can't wait for the John C. Garand Match this Summer!

I believe there was some there today, 25Mar17. Best to call first though: 1.419.635.2141.

Full rack, 48, of 6M M1's. A number of these had AUC on the tags. Rest of items pretty much the same as previously reported.
