    late WW2 rebuild of SA 1940

    Photos show a late WW2 rebuild of a Springfield serial number 80316, barrel is a Buffalo Arms revision 19 which is also towards the end (there is a Rev 22 too). Believe the revision 2 might be original. operating rod is not modified rev 3. Parts are all WW2 mixed. The stock appears to be new and not a reworked/rebuild and has the SA SHM cartouche. Nice figured original walnut completes the rifle Click image for larger version

        ‚Äč The Buffalo Arms barrel (revision 19) also required swaging during installation during rebuild

              Robert thank you for sharing. A very nice, uncommon rifle in outstanding condition. Is the barrel chrome plated at the gas port?

                The barrel is without chrome at the gas port. i have a later Buffalo Arms barrel revision 22 also without the chrome. The rifle was a veteran return from WW2 by a USMC Seabee who said he bought it from an officer. Also have the manual with his name. He had changed the stock for some reason during ownership so I knew the stock was not original and did not feel bad installing late a SA SHM stock which is not a WW2 rebuild. Stock would be perfect for a war's end production M1.
