Default Garand Serial number search?

Where can I find info on my new baby from the CMP? Its a service grade Springfield receiver, barrel, trigger group with a HRA bolt and Op rod. I found my Op rod spring broken too .

Anyway my serial is 5796XXX any info would be appreciated.


Throat reading 2+
muzzle reading 1+
This thing should shoot great.

Isn't that right in the middle of the unopened cases of Garands that PCH is sitting on?

There isn't as much info for post ware rifles, but what I can find it is 1955-57.

On edit, it is the low end of that block of serial numbers, so probably 1955, but no telling for certain.

As emcon5 stated, there is not much info out there on post war rifles.
As far as your Op rod spring, you can contact CMP customer service and I am sure that they will send a replacement, however you may want to replace it yourself with a new spring from Orion 7 instead of a 50+ year old surplus item. http://www.m1garandrifle.com/Garandparts.htm This is what I do with any surplus garand that I buy.

Nope. All of the rifles in his crate are unissued postwar Winchesters.

There used to be a web site where you could enter your rifle's serial number and it would come back with the closest serial numbers to yours that there were records on. Sometimes guys would get a direct hit and it would have unit info for their rifle. I think it was called Springfield Research Service or something like that, but I don't see the serial number lookup page on the current SRS web site.

According to the source I have, The M1 Garand Serial Numbers and Data Sheets by Scott Duff (April 2001) the approximate month end serial number for 1-1955 is 5794973 and for 2-1955 is 5807075.

So in my best guess would be Feb. 1955. For further reference you may want to pick up a copy of Scott Duffs' book which deals with post war garands.

Please post some pictures when you have the chance.

Very early 1955.
Op rod springs are a dime a dozen. I have plenty of used, USGI. PM me your address and I will hook you up.
