    4.27 SA M1 Garand

    I recently picked this Springfield 4.27m rifle up from the North Store as you see it. The only item that I find not correct as expected is the D35362 SA op-rod which was used post WWII on rebuilds. I have been told the hang tag that came on this CMP rifle is a USMC repair tag. I have no clue what the R-2 code stands for but it would be pretty cool if it just meant the op-rod was changed out by the USMC. RCS said I should post it up here to see if I get any input.

    That's one heck of a great pick up, especially from the NS. So many people scream about the NS not being as good as the SS, but gems like this certainly prove otherwise...at least sometimes!

      What a great rifle! That is the deepest heel strike I have seen on a 4 mil receiver. Seems most of them (at least the ones I have seen) aren't struck that deep. She's a beauty and one I would be proud to have in my collection. Congrats on the awesome score!!

          Contact JoeW2111, he was a Marine 2111 repairman during that time frame and might remember exactly what that code means.

            Any luck on finding out what the code means? Still a fantastic looking rifle!

              I posted a thread on the CMP Forums and it seems there was some discussion on whether there should have been a - or a / used in the tag. But no one said it was not a USMC tag. No idea on the op-rod but I am betting the 65 series op-rod was replaced. Since the tag has the serial number on it I am guessing it could have been repaid and stored since 1959.
