A local shop has a Springfield "Tanker" Garand for $599 it has a plain light colored birch stock, metal looks good and it's tight.

Thanks

Hi Chuck, I'm not sure the writing was very small and wasn't struck very deep. I saw Springfield and it looks pretty old but in good shape. The stock is a light yellowish birch color and in good condition. The metalwork looks good but I didn't have or ask for a bore light because I wasn't really thinking about buying it at the time. Then I got to thinking and couldn't remember the last time I saw one and thought it might be a nice addition. It's a 30-06.

Thanks,

Jim

Thanks for the info Chuck. I'm going out of town for a week and if it's still there I'll look it over more closely when I return. I bought new Springfield Armory M1 about ten years ago and at $599 this one seemed to be a good deal.
