    Real or fake m1 garand

    I cannot find any list that includes my M1 Garand's SN. It Has receiver marking of UA Rifle, Cal .30M1, Springfield, and has SN 4247XXX. I am beginning to think it is a fake. I would appreciate any information.

      Fake as in how? That serial puts it as a early post war garnad

        Springfield made post war garands. One of the S/N ranges was 4,200,001 to 4,399,999. If you still have doubts, post a picture of the heel of the receiver with the serial number.

          Thank you for your replies. The reason I thought it might be fake is that I had looked at several web sites that listed SN ranges and date of manufacture and I failed to find the range of Serial numbers that contained mine. It appears that I overlooked it. But I do thank you for your help.
