I have a Springfield Armory M1 that appears to be unfired and all original. The only part that isn't SA is the H&R bolt. The question that I have is that I can't find the serial number listed anywhere. The number is 7,003,XXX, and everything that I can find says that the last ones made were in the 6 mil range.
I know that Springfield Armory released some built with military parts starting in 2002, but the old guy that I bought this from swears that he got it in the late 70's, and I have owned it since 2001.
Does anybody know the SN range of the newer ones?
