This is an early gas trap rifle which was rebuilt in 1944 with a "narrow nose" gas port cylinder assembly.

Provenance:Ex. Harry B. Andree, Jr.

Condition:Stocks are in excellent condition with a thin coating of surface dirt. There are only a few dents and dings. Metal is excellent showing wear around the muzzle area and some fading on the surfaces of the receiver. The rifle will clean up very nicely and is completely a correct example of the immediate post-WWII rebuild program of early armies. It would be an excellent addition to an M1 collection.
