A local gun shop had this on consignment and I was pretty interested. A few days later it had been sold. Little did I know that my wife had bought it and gave it to me for Christmas. Awesome gift in that I’ve wanted one a long while. I have limited knowledge but here’s what I know. It’s a 1945 Springfield receiver. 1945 SA barrel, SA bolt carrier. Probably restocked with the circle P cartouch. I can’t find any other stock markings. It has the early model milled trigger guard that I think changed around 1944. I’ve heard about the op rods. What do I need to look for?What ammo is acceptable. Should I have a Garand smith check for spec before firing? I have the contact info of the original owner. I’m gonna try and get some history on it. Overall I’m really happy with it but I’d like to know more. Experts chime in. Gadget help me out.
