    M1 Garand Question about my rifle.

    My question is simple. I am just trying to figure out if my rifle is all original or refit. I believe my rifle serial number dates it to 1943 from Springfield Armory, and I do believe its been though the refreshed process with some parts. I just really don't know.
    I am not looking to sale, but I am curious what it's worth as well. I took pictures of all the numbers on my rifle and overall pictures just to show the condition. I bought this rifle back in 2007 when I got home from Iraq. So any information would be appreciated. Hopefully the pictures I took are enough, if not let me know what other pictures you would need. Thanks! The bigger versions of the pictures are on my profile if you want to look at them there.

            It appears that the previous owner was trying to build a period correct rifle from parts. Most of the parts are correct. The stock has the correct EmcF cartouch but the number on the bottom of the stock is the serial number of the rifle that was in the stock. The Danes did this. The hole in the stock grip is where a medallion was placed. The receiver looks refinished. The gas plug should be a single slot instead of a cross slot.

              It's been refinished. Gas cylinder lock screw is a little too late. It's been "rationalized" (corrected some) but don't worry about it, one way or the other.

              It's just another M1. A good one.
