serial #320442, 30-06, 24" 8-41 dated Springfield barrel with a very good bore that shows some frosting and a couple spots of light pitting. The gas cylinder and front sight retain 95% of an added black enamel finish with some flaking spots. The other parts retain 90% original parkerized finish with some light silvering on the floorplate and scattered fading. The walnut stock rates very good as lightly cleaned with a strong ordnance wheel cartouche, a strong "SA/GHS" cartouche, a strong circled P firing proof, some scattered dings and handling marks. All of the parts appear to be correct and the barrel is marked with British proofs near the date. An original 1942 Boyt M1907 sling is included with this rifle. A very good example of a correct pre-Pearl Harbor Garand that was lent to our British allies. (208678-19) {C&R} (1800/2500) SOLD FOR $2,645.00
