    I just got mine in the mail. I originally ordered a service grade H&R but it ended up unavailable. They changed the order and I got a springfield instead. I believe with sn# 1527xxx it should be an april of 43 manufacture? I am amazed by the condition its is in. far better then I was expecting to get. A coworker who got one a few years back described it as a "mantel piece", not a gun to shoot. The tag it had on it had a throat reading of 1+ and muzzle reading of 1+. My understanding is that those should indicate a sound shooter as well. Getting a wwII era springfield in the condition mine appears is more then I could have hoped for. Now as long as it doesn't blow my fingers off and puts holes in the right place on paper when I shoot it, I couldn't be happier.

    Mine is HRA Service Grade (see my thread in this forum about it) but it was made in November 1955 and has all original barrel, receiver and rear sight assembly. Also has original proof marked stock with Rainer Arsenal cartouche.
