The trigger housing looks to be pre the 'Police Action" in Korea. Is it?

The Stockset is Birch, color is called CMP-Pumpkin. It's a 5.5million HRA, date is 1954. The trigger group is a newer 65-series SA with a stamped triggerguard. The pre-Korea triggerguards were stamped with a milled Locking clip. AAMOF, it's a typical Service-Grade Mixmaster. The receiver, Bolt and Barrel are HRA, the rest is SA. The rear sight is HRA also. TE-ME are 1.5-1 respectively. I've currently got a new Walnut Stockset ordered for it along with a M1907 Sling from El Paso Saddlery. While a web sling would be correct for it, I plan to shoot it in John C.Garand Matches and the M1907 tightens you up better.

I have a very early 5 million also, bought it because of the unique SN, Starts with a 5, has 5-0's and you'll never guess the last digit!

Beautiful gun, restored to like new so it doesn't have much in the way of historical value but it is so accurate and fun!

Gorgeous Dave. I would swear in front of my mother to get my hands on one of these. Such an incredible tool with incredible history.

Nice! Looks like my CMP Garand.

Had another that's at the top of my personal dumb gun trades list: M1D. :(
