1945 m1 980 he wants for it, good price?
is that a good price?
looks to be in nice shape, considering its age
is it matching numbers?
1945 not 1845
M1 Garand, Springfield, receiver 1945, barrel 1945, all parts Springfield, no cartouches on stock, excellent condition. Shoots 1" groups at 100 yards.
Put a tactical rail and a can on it and you're set.
it would be a good price if its a winchester. not for a springfield armory. you can get them from CMP for $600. www.odcmp.com but you have to meet some criteria and also $23 shipping. so i wouldn't pay more then $700 for it unless you meet the criteria for CMP. if so, then just order from CMP.
all parts springfield doesn't mean anything. they made parts during ww2, post ww2, korea, and post korea. just cause its all springfield doesn't mean its got the original parts. pull back on the operating rod and on the barrel it will say SA #-## where #-## is the month and date of the barrel. if it had its original barrel it would of course end in -45. for instance, mine was made in march 1944 but has a 1-52 barrel because it was replaced during korean use.
