This is a scarce, documented Springfield Armory M1 Garand that was sold as a National Match rifle, as indicated by the DCM sales copy included with the listing. The receiver dates to 1945, but the National Match rifles were first introduced in the mid-1950s with the idea of making a rifle that could compete in national match competitions. With that in mind, the best barrels were selected, and paired up with the existing inventory of receivers and using the best components available. These were sold to various shooting clubs, at Camp Perry events and to individuals through the DCM (Director of Civilian Marksmanship) – predecessor of CMP. This particular rifle is a type 2 example and comes with a sales record from the Ordnance Officer in 1969. This rifle has NM markings on the rear sight, slide, barrel, front sight and sling swivel. Also the stock has the last 4 digits of the serial number written in white ink. Springfield Arsenal stocks were used as well as were marked with a “serif P in the circle” and a DOD cartouche on the left side. The stock is glass bedded which give it the extra shine. The barrel is dated to September of 1954 and SA marked. Beautiful finish throughout, hardly and wear. Strong, shiny bore with just a small patch of pitting in one area of the bore – shouldn’t impact accuracy. Muzzle reading is a 2, throat is a 1. Comes with an excellent leather sling. C&R eligible.
