What do you know about the Springfield 1898?
From what I've read this is the predecessor to the M1 Garrand, and wasn't relieved from duty due to accuracy. It's a cool old gun, and I have no desire to sell it, I'm just curious as to the specifics. It has this brass cap that goes over the muzzle and front sight, and the way it raises the front sight so bad, and how iregular the hole is, I am thinking that it was a bayonet. From what I've seen they value from $500-$2500, which has gone up due to modification of most exisiting rifles. Other than the percieved flaw in that brass cap, this rifle is untouched.
I'd like to clean the barrel, refinish the stock, and shoot it. Like old cars though, I don't want to be ignornt and over-restore, or ruin it.
