PL1: Springfield Armory M1C Serial Number 3251840 – $29,999.95
Verified 100% original benchmark M1C from the first 100 production rifles featured and documented in the Garand Collectors Association Journal when first uncovered. Rifle overall condition approaches 99% and appears only test and functioned fired. Rifle retains all original WWII parts as produced with no signs of rebuilding or restoration and is as assembled at Springfield Armory in late 1944. Rifle features early blued and serialized M81 scope and rubber eyecup with matching numbered 3251840 blued Griffen & Howe mount. Base exhibits original G&H staking and is un-numbered to rifle as continued research suggests that approximately the first 3000 bases were not numbered to these early production M1C rifles. Exceptional GAW cartouche and all other proofs on metal and wood as expected. Undoubtedly the finest example of a M1C rifle in existence and worthy of a premier martial collection or museum.
PL2: Springfield Armory Model Shop M1 Serial Number 23 – $114,999.95
A fine example of one of the first 80 hand assembled test rifles produced in the late summer of 1937 at Springfield Armory’s Model Shop under the direct supervision of J.C. Garand and used for testing before the M1 went into production. Serial number 23 is documented by Springfield Research as being used in the first bayonet trials at Aberdeen Proving Grounds. These first model shop rifles were retained at Springfield and upgraded with new revision parts as produced for testing and the reason why only a few of these model shop rifles survive intact as built and these reside in museums at Springfield Armory National Historic Site and Rock Island Arsenal. Serial number 23 retains all original Gas-Trap configuration parts and is “circa” 1940 configuration including original Gas Trap barrel with bright sharp bore, type III Gas Trap cylinder, Key-stone operating rod spring, un-modified no-trap stock with solid buttplate, milled and grooved bands, early configuration rear sight, early receiver internals and trigger housing. There is a arsenal repair on the right side of the receiver, additional photos can be sent upon request until the listing is updated. Rifle is in excellent condition with no reproduction parts. Less than 20% of these first Model Shop rifles are known to have survived with most residing in museums or premier U.S. martial collections. A rare opportunity to obtain one of these truly rare and desirable M1 rifles.
