I have an M1 with a new birch stock and a new barrel. None of the parts match and the stock is new with no factory stamps. The rifle parts were taken off older m1's .
The barrel is stamped Federal Ordnance - El Monte , Ca.
It has a springfield receiver made in 1942.
The rifle is in mint condition and it has a new Parkerized finish.

Thanks,
John

There is not enough info to make an adequate estimate.

Having a Fed Ordinance barrel puts everything as a big question mark. They are known for less than stellar reworks, and welded receivers if I recall correctly.

If Federal Ordnance has anything to do with assembling the rifle, you are looking at a gun of lesser value than any US arsenal rifle. Condition is of little importance if it has "after-market" commercial parts on it. Fed Ord built a lot of rifles on rewelded receivers and new poorly cast receivers. You need to have an expert look at it and determine if it is a reweld.

The reciever they gave me was a 1942 Springfield. Hope its alright ! I shot it about 20-30 times and it seems fine. But now I'll go and have it checked out. Thanks for the info !

Possibly a welded receiver, questionable source for parts, no historic or collectors value and quite possibly an unsafe firearm. I would say that it's not worth over $100.00, but just to keep you safe and to keep the weapon from injuring anyone, I'll offer to take it off of your hands for $150.00, shipped! ;) :mrgreen:

Wheres the drawing and revision #, I don't know much about Garands, I'm an enfield collector. Is the # visable on the outside or do I have to disassemble the rifle ?
Thanks,
John

It's on the front leg of the receiver. Just pull the buttstock off. It's right there.
