Springfield Armory M1 Garand, caliber .30-6, serial number 19983xx, manufactured October 1943. Barrel is Springfield dated March 1944. All parts are detailed below and shown in pictures. No import marks.
The gun has been disassembled, cleaned and lubricated. Parts were clean for photos, coated with oil and greased where appropriate when reassembled.
We test fired the Garand and it shoots great. You can watch a video of our test firing at our YouTube channel, FernwoodArmory TV.

Clip latch: early round front type

Stock: walnut, appears to be refinished GI, probably arsenal replacement, relatively few dings/scratches, no cracks, very nice appearance. Markings are faint but include “RIA EB” in box, possibly another of the same, and 3 circled “P” marks on the pistol grip. This stock was evidently sanded a bit too much at some point, and the corner of the receiver overhangs the wood slightly (this is shown in photos). However the stock fits fine and the gun shoots great.
Handguards: walnut, same condition as stock and good color match.
Buttplate: appears to be refinished GI in very good condition
Canvas sling and 2 M1 enbloc clips (no ammo) are included.
