    The wood you see inset at the sides is because of spongy wood or damage. It wouldn't leave new with that. The forged trigger guard is early so a replacement there, I think the barrel should be line material manufacture. There were some Springfield barrels used early and towards the end of the line though... I think this is an accumulation of parts but in new shape. He maybe means he's never fired it. Yes, it's as new... It's a second serial block IH rifle. This is an article may give you more info... American Rifleman | The International Harvester M1 Garand Rifle

    Could that "A4" etched mark really be AA? Sounds to me like an arsenal rebuild (perhaps Anniston?) of September 1964, especially with a Springfield barrel from March of 1963.

    Sorry but your rifle is not unfired. It has been well used in fact rebuilt in Sep 1964 at Anniston Army Depot

    Looks to be in Service Grade condition so plus or minus $1000.

    CMPicon is selling similar rifles (in store only no mail order).
