Is the rifle ALL Springfield? Are there importation marks on it anywhere? I'm looking for a WWII era Garand and was curious about the CMP rifles.

The barrel date/mfgr should be stamped on the barrell, probably under the handguard somewhere. Mines a 1943 receiver and 1946 barrel. All Springfield. Neat old gun. Only time you would get an imported CMP gun (Danish) is you ask for one. They are a little cheaper.

If you pull the action back and lock it, the place where it covers the barrel closed will have something like SA (springfield) 43 (1943). The trigger assembly will have the same markings on it (manufacture and date). If the gun has import marks on it (hard to pin down exactly, depends on the company) that lessens the value but if your going to shoot it and keep her...no worries!

DVD - Basically, you jusy don't want the tip of the bullet to go into the muzzle end of the barrel up to the neck of teh case. If it DOES NOT, this means that the projectile makes contact with the lands of the rifling right up to the time the bullet leaves the barrel. THAT is a good thing.

Ahhhh, fond memories of Paul's last shoot in Washington are stirred in me by this rifle. The way his hips bounced back about 18 inches as he bump-fired a full clip into the berm. [heavy] Have fun! Coversix
