Type I Gas Trap Restorations. M1 Garand production began in 1937 with serial# 81. The first 80 were shop model prototypes. Numbers 93, 94, 95 & 96 were made in July 1937 and were sent to various army posts for field testing by the troops.
Win-13 #1603926 (January 1945) and Springfield #1603926L (May 1943). The "L" was added to distinguish it from the Winchester, although the standard ordnance way of marking duplicates was with an "X"
#3880255 came from Columbia
#3880256 came from Korea
Both rifles were bought by 2 friends and ended up in my collection.
Barrels 3/53. Very early HRA production, with early style HRA stocks with ordnance wheel on left hand side, WWII Springfield op catches, hammers, and modified op rods.
In 1956, Springfield Armory allocated HRA 400 serial numbers in Springfield's six million range. This one was built up as an M1D.
