Our Assessment: This rifle started life as a Springfield M1 Garand back in 1943. It is now in M1A configuration and resembles a Semi Auto M14. This rifle was built using surplus M14 parts and M1 Garand parts.
The receiver used is RE-WELDED. The serial number on the rear does not match the drawing number on the leg. The receiver has also been cut to an M1A profile. This is a good looking M1A conversion with a strong bright bore. It should do well at the range.
