***I love my M-1. It’s as accurate as can be. Now if I could just shoot straight.***
I got one through the CMP about fifteen years ago. It is a great looking International Harvester with an Iver Johnson trigger assembly.
It is so accurate I put three shots in one hole at 100 yards before witnesses. Unfortunatly that was the “sight in” shots for the match so the shots didn’t count. I have never been able to do that again.
The second one from the DCM was a Springfield m-1D. Not in quite as good of shape as the IH but it still shoots well. It came with a Weaver B4 scope. I wrote the NRA and they confirmed that the Army did issue some M-1Ds with Weaver scopes in the mid 1960s. I still have all the paperwork on this jewel.
mine is a springfield made in 1942. it stays in the black at 100 yds....my son’s Harrington and Richardson (1950s vintage) groups a bit tighter. he carrys his for deer hunting with a hunting legal 5 shot clip...too heavy for me to carry afield at my age.
