Saipan Provenance Winchester M1 Garand Semi-Automatic Rifle. Produced from February 1943-May 1943. Documented history to the Battle of Saipan and as having been turned into the police after the Japanese were eradicated from the island in July 1944. This rifle comes with letters from the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Department of Public Safety, releasing this rifle by serial number to the private collection of Aldo Burdi (along with several other supporting documents). These rifles had been in police storage since 1946 and had never gone through any rebuild program. All marked parts are correct Winchester to this gun including the Winchester inspector cartouche on left side. (WRA GHD) The left side of stock has a the original metal "PROPERTY OF US GOVERNMENT" sticker on it. CONDITION: Surprisingly, this rifle survived in very fine condition. The chamber has a TE reading of 4 and an ME reading of 2. The metal retains the majority of its dark parkerized finish and the stock, with some usual bumps and dents, has its original finish with sharp legends.
