You have a sporterized 1922 Springfield. Others can tell you what variant.

As sporterized examples of these rifles go, that's a nice one.
Of course, those of us who appreciate these rifles in their original form, have to cringe a little when one gets that treatment.


The model variation is easily discernible if you remove the front scope base. My guess is that it started out as an upgraded MI or an original M2. Your magazine is aftermarket, not the original one that came with the rifle. Does it still have the front sight? Probably not, as the sporter stock covers up the area where the aperture sight was located.

Value is subjective based on a number of things including location and whatever a willing seller and buyer are willing to agree on. Check out the auction sites for previous sales, though they are few and far between for nice sporters like this.

There are no marks under the front base?Just the serial number on the side.

You have taken the scope and base off the rifle?
As you see in this pic. The base will cover the marketing

If the receiver ring has been completely scrubbed, it will be almost impossible to determine what model the rifle was originally. Early Model of 1922's had a couple extra milling cuts not found on later models, but that would require an inspection of the action out of the stock.

It is a very tastefully done custom job, but as mentioned value tends to be driven by originality and condition. One exception is the early custom rifles from folks like Griffin and Howe or R.F. Sedgley. Those rifles have a following and can demand premium prices.

You have a very nice custom rifle that anyone would proudly want to own. I would guess a value of $600.00. Just depends on the buyer.

I would would agree with Artd's estimate of value. The value in these guns is the collector market.
Take a look at listings on gunbroker. Customized guns are much cheaper than original configuration guns. This rifle is attractive and someone sunk a sizeable amount into it.

Cant tell for sure, but I suspect the 'tiger striping' is artificial, but either way, faux or real, from the pics I like it.

It's real. It appears to be an old Bishop stock. One of the hiigher grades of walnut they sold in the 1960-1970's

Is the magazine a Triple K or is it a shortened Marlin mag like Remington did for the 40XB repeaters?

That's a beautiful rifle you have there. Somebody took the time to do it right...

I would hang on to that one - looks like a fine rabbit and squirrel buster.
