12/4/18 - Here is an absolutely gorgeous and documented DCM Sales US Springfield M1D sniper rifle with M84 scope, mount, sun shade, scope case, 3 prong T37 flash hider, MRT 11-62 stamped leather cheek piece, sling, original basic issue cleaning accessories, AND the original 1996 DCM lottery winner paperwork. It also comes in the shipping box with plastic storage wrap numbered to both the rifle and the scope and US Government purchase correspondence. Excellent July of 1944 serial numbered Springfield receiver with 2-52 SA barrel with bright and shiny bore. The rifle looks about new as re-arsenaled with just some light storage marks. Operating rod is National Match (NM) marked. The rifle and scope are excellent inside and out. All the accessories look new and unused. These were sold only if the shooting club member entered and was lucky enough to be selected as a lottery winner. The M1Ds were all made from existing stocks of M1 rifles, utilizing new SA barrels (usually 1951/52 dated) with a mix of other parts. They all typically show some stock evidence of rebuild as this one does. Stock looks Army arsenal refinished with boxed SA over GAW stock cartouche next to ordnance inspection mark. Two Circle P Proofs on the stock wrist. SA marked bolt, barrel, receiver, trigger guard assembly, and stock. The accessories are all still new in the military wrap (each package has been opened for inspection purposes only). The US M84 scope has crisp clear optics and has excellent blue finish. Scope adjusts properly. We doubt this M1D was ever issued. This one appears to have seen no service use after completing M1D program rebuild. Rifle, M84 scope, US Government paperwork, shipping box, accessories shipped with the rifle and all are tied together through documented part/serial numbers on the DCM Program purchase & shipping paperwork/box. Simply an untouched, well documented US Garand sniper rifle time capsule for the discriminating collector. Hard to upgrade this beautiful M1D package.
