      Bubba needs to be banned from Gun Ownership - before he ruins what's left of the vintage guns he comes into contact with.

        I have never heard of a Springfield M1941.

        Wise up.

          The Johnson was indeed a rifle used by the Corps, especially in the early days of the war, before they completed the transition to the M-1 from the 1903. IIRC, there was also a light machine gun, which was used by the First Special Service Force. Johnsons are pretty rare now, and generally go for between five and seven thousand dollars, IF you can find one in decent shape that someone is willing to sell. What this BUBBA did to the one advertised is a travesty, but most of it could (possibly) be reversed. If I had $1200 to spare (i.e., if I had a job right now), I would seriously consider this rifle.

              I have seen several of these sporterized and there was a sporter from the factory, I live beside a marine base and a lot of the old guys used these in WW2 and wanted to hunt with them back here so they bought it and made it like they wanted it, it was not a classic in 1946 when they cut it down just a heavy rifle they wanted lighter just like the one they cut down on Guadal canal.

                Johnson sporter

                IIRC, a company called Winfield Arms was offering sporterized Johnsons in "The American Rifleman". Had to be sometime in the 50s or early 60s.
