Have a good friend who has a Nat. Ord. M1, serial 1,831.xxx that he may be interested in parting with. Haven't been able to find out much about the Nat. Ord., except it was probably made in the late 60's or so. He indicates that it appears that the orginal manufacture may have been ground off/buffed off, but left the serial and has Nat. Ord. information on the side of the receiver.

Any ideas as to value or quality?

Thanks,
Buck

A 1.8 million serial number would indicate that the receiver was originally made by the Springfield Armory government armory in Massachusetts during WWII. The fact that this information has been ground off seriously lowers the value of the rifle.

Good condition field grade M1 rifles can be had from the CMP for $495.00 and some shipping. And the CMP currently has really nice service grade rifles for $595.00.

I would not pay more than $300.00 or maybe $350.00 for the rifle you describe.
