    I have been fascinated with the Springfield 1922 rifle since shooting one in JROTC so any years ago. I never had the knowledge nor the resources to acquire one, but that has fortunately changed. Starting from the top is the:

    Springfield Armory Model of 1922, Barrel Date - 11/22, NRA Sales Rifle

    Springfield Armory M1922MI, Barrel Date - 10/31, NRA Sales Rifle with Unertl 1 1/4 X14 scope

    Springfield Armory Model of 1922MII, Barrel Date - 9/25, MI Issue Rifle upgraded to M2

    Springfield Armory M2, Barrel Date - 1/42, Issue Rifle

    [​IMG]

    Now the challenge of filling in the spaces. The hunt is on for:

    M1922M1 Issue Rifle, not upgraded by Springfield Armory

    M1922M1 DCM Club Rifle, Issue rifle that was converted to NRA configuration

    M2 NRA Sale Rifle, only 80 made

    My Unicorn, a M1924 International Rifle, only 11 made

    You need to bring one to RBGC next week, (4/7), for the 200 yard rimfire match.

    I'll be in Oak Ridge, TN shooting NRA High Power Matches Sat & Sun. Sounds like fun.
