Winchester (WRA) M1 GARAND – 30-06 CALIBER. FAIRLY RARE, VERY RARE IN THIS CONDITION AND FROM JRA !
Professionally rebuilt to "Arsenal Reissue" Condition by James River Armory, a highly respected military firearms restorer, using the exact process that the U.S. Government Arsenal used, only with much more time and attention. This rifle has a new Krieger Criterion barrel; new American Walnut stock set with oiled finish, and properly cartouched to match serial number ; original zinc phosphate gray-green reparkerized metal to provide the correct finish; new butt plate; original USGI parts; head space gauged; gas cylinders and oprods are gauged; all critical areas inspected. Test Fired and ready to shoot. Garand Match legal.
What you will be buying is basically a NEW GARAND built and hand sanded and Parked and cartouched to match the ORIGINAL RIFLE. the original specs, down to the Linseed oil finish and narrower wrist, hand sanded for at least 90 minutes to conform to the original US GOVT PRINTS.These AREN'T fancy-pants shined up /shellacked or polyurethaned replicas in some oddball color, these are the rough and tough M1s our boys carried in the ETO and PTO, with the Original WWII receiver and most metal except for the barrel and buttplate, which are new mfg.Then hand rubbed with Linseed oil !
These rifles from JRA are the closest you will ever come to owning an M1 Garand in as close to the condition as humanly possible to the way they were issued to our boys for WWII and Korea.If you want historical accuracy, these are BEAUTIFUL rifles.
Comes with a Plano Gun Guard hard case.
As a historical note, very few M1 Garand Rifles can be found in “As Issued” condition from WWII. The U.S. Government ran a constant rebuild program on this rifle during the war and up to the 1970’s. Barrels and stocks as well as components, such as rear sights, were replaced and the metal was refinished. It has been estimated that almost 98% of all M1’s went through this rebuild program at least once.
Preferred method of Payment is by UNITED STATES MONEY ORDER. I will accept a personal check or even a cashier's check, but these will substantially delay shipment.A US MO will get your rifle shipped same/next day by UPS 3 day Ground, and will be insured.
