M1 Grande scope mount
I have a M1 Grande SER# 544XXX with a scope mount on it.
The scope mount is a two piece. The base is mounted on the left side of the receiver. The top piece w/(rings and scope) is removable and slides off the base. I found some numbers and the following on the top piece:
Griffin and Howe, INC.
The scope is a 4X32 "Monoscope".
I have two questions that I was hoping someone could help with.
First, is this mount an aftermarket mount or was it installed by the Armed Forces?
Second, Does anyone know what this rifle is worth?
I doubt that I will ever sell it but the person I leave it to might, and they should know what they have.
