The 1922 Series Gallery Practice rifles were all .22 LR cal.
The Model of 1922 and Model of 1922M1 both came with headless cocking pieces. The M2 bolt had the knurled nut on it. It's purpose was not to control firing pin protrusion. It was intended to be finger tight. The most commonly seen Springfield .22 will have the M2 bolt installed. The near 20,000 or so that remained in govt. inventory were nearly all returned to SA or one of the arsenals to have the M2 bolts installed. My apology for chasing rabbits on this thread but the bolt configuration topic slipped in.

John, After wasting 30 minutes trying to send you a PM I am adding to my post that I have some 1922M1 magazines. email me if you want one.

Hershel is the resident 1922 expert and covered that quite well. I really like the 1922 and 1922 M1 rifles much better than the M2. By time the M2 came along there was a pretty significant drop in the quality of the rifles. I believe the knurled head on the M2 firing pin was just to make it more like the 03. I think it would look much better if they'd a shaped it like the 03.

Back to the original topic. I cleaned up the stock a bit with some oil and light application of 0000 steel wool in the darker areas near the butt and it cleaned up quite nicely. The forward sling swivel screws into a lug attached to the barrel that has been inlet into the stock. Common practice at the time was to anchor the barrel somehow to the forend. Shelhamer generally used a little brass ashutzen (or however it is spelled) to accomplish this, but must have figured the swivel would suffice on this rifle.
