    December 1941 Garand

    Something about the earlier rifles that really peaks my interest. I bought this one a few years ago from a guy who had it "corrected" by Scott Duff. Not Original rifle but Corrected to as when it would have left the factory
    I guesstimate it was built just a few days before Pearl Harbor
    If you have any questions about it just ask

            Beautiful!!!
            That's right. You're the one who taught me to look for the polished lugs and face to check if the bolt is original finish.
            The round firing pin is a nice bonus!!

              VERY nice, I'd love to correct mine, but stocks and barrels seem to be rare as hens teeth anymore.

                  and expensive, not to mention flush nut rear sights!

                    I have a late Dec. 1941 which has a -2SA bolt heat lot RE4A Bolt is polished on face and rear lug. Has hole in rear of right bolt lug and a round firing pin.

                      Bill,
                      You have some very nice rifles in your collection. Brian and Bill can you explain to me about the polished face and how to tell if it's original finish!?

                        The bolt face and back of the lugs will be polished with no finish on these early bolts. If they are not polished it is more than likely refinished. I dont know the reasoning behind being polished though

                          Photos show some NOS bolts revision 2 J9A and RE2 that were factory polished. Also early covers from the Lend lease rifles all had the coded rear sight covers Click image for larger version

                            Any idea why they were polished? Were they out of spec and was done to remove material?
