Garand Winchester VG ca. 1942 Low #  Guns > Rifles > Military Misc. Rifles US > M1 Garand
Description: One of this rifle’s fortes is its receiver’s extremely low serial number, 115xxx range, one of the earliest known. According to Canfield’s 1988 Collector’s Guide, wartime serialization began around 120,000. This one is from around July or August of 1941. Another strength is that this rifle is not a re-import. We got it from the estate of a WWII vet, but he acquired it after the War, probably in the 1970s. The barrel is Excellent both in finish and internally, as the photos show. Winchester barrels were marked, according to Canfield, above the chamber area underneath the handguard; and this barrel is not so marked. Note the mismatch with the gas system coloration, and the barrel is stamped F A 30-06 3 96 on its side. Another non-Winchester part is the operating handle, Springfield Armory, D353xx SA. Magazine well / lower receiver is Winchester, however, D282xx-2 W.R.A. Trigger group assembly is also Winchester, C 460xx W.R.A. Wood is an older glossy refinish over partial sanding. The many pecks and dings still show however subdued, but there are no visible cartouches remaining. Buttplate appears original. Note that there is some amateurish action bedding around the stock edges but these are not conspicuous when the rifle is assembled. Also, the receiver has been re-parked and the number and brand are weak, as the photos show. The metal finish, or re-parkerization, is Very Good. The barrel appears original finish and Excellent by itself. We have included sufficient photography for interested parties to judge finish grade for themselves. Note that there is some light rust on the sides of the lower receiver / mag well, and the floorplate from the trigger group is splotchy, characteristic of many similar rifles. Restocked and rebarrelled appropriately this rifle would be a prize indeed; but we have neither the time nor expertise to hunt down the parts. We’re offering this rare but partially refurbished early Winchester Garand for only $ 995.00.

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony. GA Pay buyers are NOT charged until we confirm we have the item and are ready to ship it. The same thing is true for phone-in, fax-in, and mail-in payments. In this respect, and in several others, Guns America outshines all its competitors. This is the best firearms website there is, hands down.
