    If it's a SPRINGFIELD ARMORY production, it was built in 1905.

    If it's a ROCK ISLAND ARMORY production, it was built in 1907.

    Are you sure the s/n is 807xx or is it a 807xxx? Makes a BIG difference in value.

    That is why I edited it 807xx (only 5 digits).

    Not bad for $250.00. As far as I know, it has not been reworked. And I believe that is serial #.

    Nice rifle. There are cautions about using those low number receivers. However, the testing done by the govt seems to indicate the risk is relatively low for those low number receivers to fail.

    The CMP recommends not shooting any of the Springfields with the serial numbers lower than 800,000.

    Take it to a gunsmith and see what he says before firing it.

    No plans on shooting, nor do I have plans on cleaning. Thanks for the heads up.
