Springfield 1922



Log in to see fewer ads
Just closed the deal for a Springfield 1922, SN 198, has a 12-36 barrel and correct original bolt. Don't know too much about this rifle except what I could learn from Brophy's The Springfield 1903 Rifles. Have always wanted one of these Springfield .22 rifles but have always been an hour late or dollar short. Would appreciate any information you might have to add.

Congratulations! These are fantastic, high quality firearms of a bygone era.

Not much can be said about yours without more information and especially some pictures when you get it.
If it's an unaltered M2 version, the serial number and barrel date do not seem to jibe.


Also, you should move this to the Military Trainers forum, where there are several knowledgeable individuals about these rifles.

Here's something that can be of use to you. It has a great deal of info on other U.S. Military rimfire rifles besides the M1922....

Springfield Model 1922

Thanks, Tomcat, that manual is just what I needed. Also, thanks gewehrfreund, I knew the barrel had been replaced. Everything else is a mod 1.

You say that the bolt is origial. Does it have the dual firing pin? Does it have the long magazine? Or is it a 1922 M1 or MII and have a later bolt?

Springfield 1922

It has the two firing pin bolt with no cocking knob and the magazine is 5 round flush. I believe it's a M1.

serial # has little to do with manufacture date, for instance...

DCM Rifle Sales 1922-1942: .... #36 is listed as used with 1936 barrel date, #37 is listed as a M2 barrel date of 1933, #67 is a model 2 barrel date 1933, # 143 is a M1922 barrel date 1925, # 167 is a model 1922 MI barrel date 1927.

Go Figure!
