I need one of these. I've always found them so interesting but have never owned one. Thanks for the information!

I wonder if that was a gas trap barrel ? Like if the rifle was assembled from parts in Sacremento California. Very interesting rifle Sir.

From what I could find online as well as with the CMP the Sacramento folks were just importers/exporters. They did not assemble. Like Christian says below it probably went overseas as part of a govt. lease and then imported back at some time and refitted with parts from 53-54 parts. Agin because of the condition I would say that it was done for a drill or honor guard rifle. The wife’s uncle was in an honor guard for a lot of years so it makes sense to me. Either way no matter the true story or full story as I will probably never know. I am glad I ended up with the rifle. It is awesome.

@NC Gun Guy : I agree Sir, probably a ceremony rifle for 21 Gun Salutes, fitted with a blank firing device. Very nice rifle.

@Rick Nethery: actually two BFAs. One external and one internal per the threads on the inside of the barrel. I’m gonna see if I can’t get my hands on one of the internal ones.

Very cool, I was thinking that the choke tube looking barrel attachment was part of a grenade launcher. I have only watched the first part of this video but plan to watch the rest tonight..

Nope it is definitely an external BFA. I found them for sale on Ebay as well. I’ll take and post some range video if it ever stops raining. I think to build an Arc.

Don't know anything about the M1 but I do have a few old surplus guns. I think the piece you found in the stock that threads on the barrel is to keep the cleaning rod center inside the barrel to keep it from rubbing the sides. Hope this helps.

I never thought of that. Could be, but it was definitely fired with it on the end of the barrel as well. As it has unturned and burned powder residue inside it. Thanks for heads up on cleaning rod, will for sure look into it.
