average gun,,,between $600-$700.....

That serial number indicates that the rifle was built in January 1944. Cool! 123,221 M1's were built that month, which was actually the peak month for WW2-era production at Springfield.

I am no expert, but have been looking into prices myself. My uneducated guess is that the price should be $500-$700 as a ballpark figure, dependent on several other factors.

Hope that helps.

Thats a very tough question. The rifle was made in 1944. I would prefer one made during WWII just because. It depends on how much of it is original. Although they don't have serial numbers stamped on everything like European arms, they do have drawing numbers and other stamps to identify if parts were updated or changed. Even at that, the Springfield manufactured ones are the most common, so the prices are not as high. For your average run of the mill Springfield, in 90% condition, made from 1942 on, $800 is high and $600 is a good deal. This would be for an all military rifle, no commercial replacement stocks, and not having any collector value. There are rifles on the market now that are made from new, commercial receivers, and parts kits. The value for those are less, of course.

High quality World War II Springfield M1 Garands, remanufactured with Springfield parts, 99% finish, were going for 700 at the last WAC show I was at. Everything about these beautiful pieces was next to perfect, stock and all.

Wow, that one is real close to my old gun's serial number! I used to have #2464478 which was in about 85% condition. Had to let it go in a financial pinch back in 1995, and really miss that gun.

If anyone here happens to have it, I'll buy it back now.....
