A rather obscure piece. Stevens/Springfield 87M. Designed to provide the look and feel of an M1 Garand. 1940's vintage. Some say it was originally offered to the US Govt as a training rifle. Some say that story is crap. I don't know. I'm not one of those experts. There is info on the web that you can look at and decide for yourself. All I know is this is a clean rifle. Receiver is factory drilled for an offset scope mount that I do not have. There are two holes and a slight notch under the forearm portion of the stock. I don't know why those are there. Maybe someone wanted a sling swivel placed somewhere else which would explain the small screws holes. As to the notch????? With those issues aside this rifle is 95% with only a few tiny marks on the wood and VERY little blue wear. Mechanics and bore are fine. This would look good in a WWII collection. This is a rare model. It's actually the first one I recall seeing outside of a book. See pics and ask questions.
