How 'bout # 1,277, 352 ? (Probably it will prove the exception.)

That serial number is in the list among a group of sporters but there is no description provided for that particular number. I would guess it did ship as a NRA sporter. It might be worth a letter.

Mine the exception, as usual, but thanks for looking it up, Tom. Unless it went to someone (Whelen would be nice) or someplace special, don't think letter would be worth its cost, as I already know it's a legit Sporter.

The only way to know where it went and to who is a letter.

M1922

I have inherited what I believe to be a virtually unaltered early M1922. Barrel is dated 4-22, no grasping grooves, no cocking knob, blued barrel and receiver with W3L stamped in the top of the bolt with no cartouche markings at all. Serial# 197. My father claims his great uncle bought it to shoot competitions with it at local rifle clubs. It has been D&T for a scope and has a Lyman A5 scope with a leather case. I can only assume this was sold through a marksmanship program but would like to verify but not sure how. Any help would be appreciated. Not sure if I did this correctly, I'm a newbe.

That number is not in the book. It appears that the book only has the serial numbers of m1922 rifles sold by the DCM from 1925 on.
Please note this reference was published in 1976 and Springfield Research may have acquired information on more serial numbers since that time.
See my earlier post for information on contacting them.

Regards, Tom

1922 #197 would have had a twin striker firing pin. You will be fortunate if it still has the long magazine that extends below the floorplate. Someone posted on a forum recently that scope blocks mounted 6.5" center to center were for the Lyman A5 scope as the A5 was not long enough to mount on the blocks that were 7.2" center to center. You have a very collectable rifle but I doubt that you will ever find who the original purchaser was.

The magazine sticks out about 5/8 of an inch and the scope blocks are just under 7 1/4 apart center to center. Yes it has the twin striker firing pin. Any idea of value?
I know it is hard with no pics. The bluing is 90%, maybe a tick better, wood is pretty good also.

Does SN 949A appear anywhere? It has an electro-penciled M2 bolt and a barrel date of 12-35. Marked M2 on the receiver. It has a Timeny trigger, with the original stashed away and two M2 magazines.

Regards,

Sn 949

should be 1925 and all 1935 M2 were in the 20,xxx range. It could have been an old receiver updated or rebuilt later?

Just curious, has anyone received a response from him in reply to an email as he requests in first post?
I'd still be interested in any information anyone might have on mine - M1 sn17910.

Your is not listed but 18056 and others near that # are all 1929 dated.

What does the barrel date say? (besides bang!)
