My one and only M1 Garand as of right now, it's a July 1943 manufactured Springfield Armory rifle. She isn't the prettiest Garand out there, and there are many like her, but this one is mine. There is a Circle P and Non-Circle P on the stock, other than that there is a very faint crossed cannons.
Been trying to nail down dates for the drawing numbers and every site contradicts each other.
Trigger Group: D28290-14-SA (Nov 44 - Jan 45)
Bolt: D28287-19SA, B 15 (Jul 44 to Oct 45)
Op Rod: D35382 9 SA (Nov 43 - Jan 45)
Receiver: D28291-29 (Jul 43 - Sep 43) Serial Number of 1738447 puts it at July 1943
Barrel: S-A-4-49 so an April 49 barrel
She has some good honest wear to the parts, and has that been there, done that look, which I absolutely love.
