My name is Mark Culberson owner of IGY6 Munitions. I have acquired my first Springfield M1 Garand on a firearms trade but know nothing about my rifle except it is beautiful. I’m asking for help with identifying just what I have. I will include pictures in hopes others will help me with information. The backstory on this weapon I am told is it was awarded to a serviceman back in 1956 for winning a military marksmanship competition. I have an album of pictures I can forward to anyone who might be willing to look at them. For some reason I am unable to upload even a single picture to this page. I thank you in advance for your input.
