This is a late WWII production rifle that was upgraded in 1952. This rifle is an example of the 1950 overhaul effort at Springfield and only those that went through this particular overhaul bear this mark on the flat surface to the rear of the rear sight. As such, it is a desirable specimen in the progression of these rifles.

Provenance:Ex. Harry B. Andree, Jr.

Condition:The wood is dark with a number of dents and dings. There is a small piece missing on the side of the buttstock where the OP rod would rest in the forward position. All metal is in good condition and shows signs of light wear.
