I have a beauty of an M-1, its 7,62 and various parts are engraved with the last four of the rifle serial number. That includes the glass bedded stock, match rear sight. I have only fired it one time and that was in a rifle match. To me it fires much softer than the 30-06 versions. I started shooting those in 1955, later in the Army and again until recently. I just gave my M-1 in 30-06 to one of my best friends but have held on the this one. I am wondering if anyone is familiar with this model and if it might be of interest to collectors.
