Military: Stevens Trainer .22 LR 87M Walnut VG-Exc ca. 1950s  Guns > Rifles > Military Misc. Rifles US > Drill Rifles
Description: Thanks to our GA colleague who asked about military markings. There are none on this rifle, its manufacture was probably for the potential cadet market, though. Fjiestad's Blue Book is out of date six months before he hits the presses as far as pricing goes, because we have noticed 2-3 percent per month inflation since 2005. That is tolerable. But he simply does not list this rifle. It is obviously a trainer, a model 87 tube-fed auto with walnut stock and steel buttplate, configured like a Garand. We believe it dates from the 1950s, early 1960s at latest. This 87M trainer was never serialized, and the brand name marking reads exactly as follows: SPRINGFIELD MODEL 87M J STEVENS ARMS CO CHICOPEE FALLS MASS USA Metal is Excellent, around 95 percent. The buttstock rough finished to begin with, has light to moderate scratches that affect no more than 10 percent of its surface. Bore and mechanism are Very Good to Excellent, as excellent as any 87 M ever was. It has an appropriate period military leather sling. Note that the forend tip or guard is missing from the end of the stock. Own this fine, historic little trainer for only $ 279.95 $20 flat fee shipping, USPS Priority Mail, insured.

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.

In this respect, and in several others, Guns America outshines all its competitors. This is the best firearms website there is, hands down.
