    M1-Garand Serial Number question

    I am trying to decipher the serial number on my M1icon Garand. Springfield armory, Blue Sky stamp on barrel and serial number 3458575. Any help would be appreciated,
    Bert Prince

    The closet I can come is January 1945 per Scott A. Duff's book. That serial no. is 3446634.
    Hope this helps.

    "...Blue Sky stamp on barrel..." Have the barrel checked. Blue Sky was known for stamping very heavily to the point of damaging the barrel. They reimported thousands of M1icon Rifles and Carbines in the late 80's.
    Old Guns.net S/N lookup says your rifle's receiver was made in 1945. M1 Rifle S/N's don't really tell you much more than that.

    Spelling and Grammar count!
