This is a low serial number HRA M1 Garand, in mint condition, with a barrel dated July of 1954 that matches the receiver. A wonderful example of a post-war rebuild by the federal arsenal, this Garand sports a Springfield Armory Bolt, Op Rod and Trigger Group. Throat Erosion and Bore Erosion both rate a 2 leaving many thousands of rounds of shooting left in the old girl.
The Harrington and Richardson Arms Company (HRA) M1 Garand is completely rebuilt to factory originality by our Virginia gunsmiths. This gun appears nearly the way it did when it rolled out of the federal armory. With the exception of the wood, all parts are original GI reconditioned parts to maintain the authenticity of the rifle. The metal is painstakingly dissassembled, sandblasted, treated and parkerized. The parkerization, unlike bluing, will last for the life of the rifle without discoloration. A three piece set of wood stock, the only part of this gun not original, is cut and fitted by hand after complete finishing to complete this masterpiece. Throat and bore erosion measurements will be between 1 and 3, far belowe the 6 gauge that pushes these rifles beyond military specifications. The end result is a new-condition masterpiece that will be handed down generations as not only the ultimate piece of American history but a family heirloom as well.
