Re: Help identifying a Springfield Carbine

Hi Earnie,

I had my friend send me pictures of the serial numbers. His vision is not great, and he apparently mistook the “fancy” numerical imprints for letters, Y for a 7 and e for a 3.

The serial numbers appear to be 417394. The gun is clearly not a replica, given that he has had it since the early 1960’s, and in looking at in brighter lighting, it is clearly original from that time. Any ideas about the vintage?

I would post some pictures for comment, if you would tell me how to do so on your site.

Thank you very much!
