Question about Springfield Optics

1 Answer

Hello,\r\n Hello, I have just acquired a Springfield Armory Socom II (7.62x51) by an unfortunate inheritance of a relative who died prematurely. He did not keep the owners' manual or anything. I am trying to discover how to break down this weapon and clean it but do not want to just start taking it apart without any guidance. I am seeking an owners manual or disassembly/reassembly guide for this weapon or instructions as to how to at least field strip it for cleaning and inspection. Can you help me acquire this information? Thanks! Jim Gaither (

This is in essence a copy of the M14 military rifle or the M1A civilian version of the very same rifle although it only fires semi-auto. It fires the 7.62 NATO round and will also fire the .308. The barrel has been shortened with an added rail system on top for tactical lights. Has an added muzzle brake to prevent recoil. It is taken down exactly the same way as the M14 or M1A. This will show you how to disassemble the rifle. You can get an owner's manual by contacting Springfield Armory. 1-800-680-6866 or Here is their website. I carried the M14 while in the Army until they changed over to the M16. this is an outstanding rifle that you should be proud to own. It is IMO, the finest combat rifle ever made. It is extremely easy to take apart and clean. After you have done it one time you will see how easy it is. If you need more information just look for articles on the M14 or M1A as that is basically what you have. This is a very valuable rifle so take care of it.

How can I tell the age and serial number of my Springfield 947D single shot 12 guage shotgun

You can't do it that way. You shotgun has the serial number on it. It will either be on the side or on the barrel under the forestock.

With that information you check some of the sites below or contact Springfield.

    Just received a model 1898 springfield armory bolt action serial number 465014 what can you tell me about it

    It's probably what we know as a Krag. It's probably marked .30USG which is now known as the 30-40 Krag. It was the US service rifle during the Spanish American war and was replaced by the 1903 Springfield. It has an off magazine box on the right side that allows it to be loaded while the bolt is closed.
