    First photo of my Springfield collection.
    RO champion, XDS 45, XDM 45, XD 45. The garand is a Springfield with a date of April 1944 and has the original barrel. Muzzle reading is a 2 and throat is a 3+. All parts are Springfield besides the trigger group which is a IH. Garand shoots very well for having the original barrel. I shoot this in CMP as well.

    Springfield 1903. Serial range of 981,XXX. Shoots very well. Stock has been repaired in a few spots but appears to be a "Greek" armory style repair. My plan for this rifle is to make it a USMC sniper clone so I will be able to shoot it in the CMP vintage sniper class.

    And last but not least, my favorite rifle of all time. My M1A loaded. Stock is a USGI "Big Red". NM barrel, sadlak aluminum mount, Nikko Sterling glass, and a NM spring guide. Rifle shoots extremely well. When I do my part with the rifle on sand bags, it can shoot 2 1/2 - 3 inch groups at 400 yards.
