Top customer reviews
As stated above, this book is geared mostly towards the collector whom is concerned with verifying a rifle as original or making a rifle "correct." The first half of the book is focused on Springfield Armory and how its history influences the collector. There is a smaller but sufficient amount of information on International Harvester and Harrington and Richardson M1s as well.
The other portion contains pictures of various parts, their drawing/serial numbers and the corresponding years of production.
So if you're building, refurbishing or "correcting" a post 1945 M1 Garand this book is for you!
