Winchester M1 Garand .30-06 rifle. Early World War 2 production serial number 1345-xxx, dates to May-Oct 1943. No import marks.
Parts are a mix of Winchester and Springfield and are detailed below. Most metal parts have a dark parkerized finish. Stock is GI walnut, in very good condition. Nice looking bore with good measurements, detailed below and in photos.
The gun has been disassembled, cleaned, lubricated, and test fired – it shoots great, cycling through a full 8 round clip and ejecting the clip at the end. Parts were clean and dry for photos, coated with oil and greased where appropriate when reassembled.
