Thought I would share my WWII Springfield Garand. According to Duff, rifle manufactured in April / 1944. The following info also obtained from Duff publication.
Reciever D28291 - 32 Correct for April / 1944 Manf.
Trigger Assembly D28290 - 12- SA Correct for April / 1944 Manf.
Uncut - Slide / Op Rod D35382 - 9 - SA July / 1943 Manf.

Barrel D36448 - 35 - A - 104 S-A-3-46 March / 1946
Oh well, everything but the barrel is WWII. I've got it close. I still like to shoot it, and it's difficult to find WWII barrels that are not shot out. I know I can't have my cake and eat it too, but I'm trying. I hear the same thing as you Gary, "Why the heck are you still shooting that thing." My only reply is because it's fun.
The bayonet is an M-1, Oneida Limited / 1943, with fiberglass scabbard. Unlike the M1905 bayos, the M1's did not have serial numbers. The Oneida Limiteds were manufactured 1943 through 1945. I really love this rifle, I've had it for several years and put probably too many rounds through it. Hope you like it and thanks for looking.
