This is important whether considering the purchase of an M1 that is being presented as original, or attempting to restore a rifle to its correct configuration. The best way to determine the correct components for a specific M1 is through use of data sheets on original rifles. The purpose of this book is to provide the reader with serial number tables and a large sampling of data sheets to aid in identification and restoration.
