How do I find out the approximate date of manufacture of my M1 Garand? I just received a CMP Field Grade this morning and am curious. The number is 1,019,XXX. I apologize if this is a silly question. Thanks.

I personally haven't had a firearm comeback with additional information, but it does give a general idea of where firearms were going when yours was made and let's your imagination wonder about it for a bit.
