Dated 1944 with NOS 1954 Mint Bore Barrel
This is a very nice rifle that has been
reworked at some time in the past. Not sure if it was an
arsenal job or possibly a CMP rebuild. The receiver and
original barrel are dated 1944. The current owner had a NOS
unfired 1954 dated barrel put on it as the original barrel
was shootable but a little rough inside. The new barrel has
a throat and muzzle erosion that measure just over 0. The
old barrel is included.
The parkerizing is beautiful but there is
scattered light pitting underneath which means it was
refinished in the past. The parts are mostly Springfield
marked but the trigger assembly is Winchester with a
Springfield hammer. The walnut stock has a few dents and
dings from handling but no chips or cracks. The cartouche is
very faint. Comes with an original 1950s web sling.
Overall a very nice, clean rifle that
would be a good shooter and an excellent addition to any collection.
