Interestingly enough, the 89 and 99 are all USGI and the oldest one from 1980 is mostly commercial. Even the stock doesn't show any markings, not even under the buttplate. I prefer the 7.62 to the four line roll mark tho. Says Made in Murica to me! Now to find some range time...

Good family picture innocent bystander, it would be interesting to hear how all three shot together the same ammunition.

I second this. I think that is one of the best camo jobs I have ever seen on a rifle. I could easily imagine that as USGI Vietnam issued if such a thing would have ever been done.

Please tell us about it.
Thanks, this one's my favorite rifle, that was springfield's OEM woodland pattern from the late 80s early 90s. I'm thinking about getting a slotted handguard painted to match for the cool factor. Here's a just the camo

Is that the original stock? Thanks, JD
It's exactly as it came from the factory. I had a bunch of info about who did the artwork for springfield but I can't seem to find it now. I have been told the paint is easily stripped by cleaning chemicals and some have had their stocks clear coated to protect them. Member flipmasterj is refinishing a couple of stocks for me now so the rifle might live in one of those and this one will be for show.

Man I am envious, that's quite a collection …. and a darn fine collection at that!

I too really like the camo, it looks really sharp.

Post baby pictures when it happens! Good looking family.

Makes me want to take one of my GI fiberglass stocks and hand guard and get a Tiger Stripe job done. May be a forgery, but how great would that look!?
