SN 3246188. Cal. 30-06. This is an absolutely superb original United States Marine Corp USMC MC-1 Garand complete with original sling and even the original properly marked “Stith Kollmorgan Telescopic Sight Model 4XD-USMC” cardboard box for the scope. This rifle is in the proper SN range. Telescope mount rings, scope (marked “MC 1087-P” with correct Sith Mounts markings at rear) are all proper for this gun. Base screws have not been staked but this is common for Marine Corps rifles. Rubber scope covers marked, “1203 Broadway, Yakima, W.N.”. Barrel is marked “6 52”. Bolt marked “D28287-12SA”. Leather sling marked “MILSCO 1944”. No cheek pad present on stock which is marked “S.A.” within square cartouche on left side stock with Serif “P” at pistol grip. Consignor is a known advanced rifle collector. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish are simply outstanding with nearly all of the original green tinted arsenal refinish remaining on all metal parts with the exception of the painted black scope aluminum body which is correct. There is some slight brassing to the high edges of the gas cylinder where the nut screws on but it is hardly worth mentioning. Buttplate is worn under the green tinted refinish. Bore is excellent, shiny and bright. Optics are clear. Stock is a wonderful deep brown with only the slightest of handling marks visible upon very close inspection. Cardboard scope box markings are clear and box is extremely fine to near excellent. Pretty much impossible to upgrade this specimen of a truly wonderful highly prized all-American rifle. 51087-3 JWK88 (10,000-15,000) C&R – Lot 3074
