This is a sort of confusing issue since there are Springfield Armory NM modifications - which happened to evolve from the 50's until 1963 - and modification made by service teams or other match armorers. Also, there is more than one method of performing some mods - like unitizing the front handguard. I guess what I'm trying to say is that it is more than a list, it is more like a history book. The late Major Dick Culver had written a rather lengthy draft document detailing much of the history of the NM M1 rifles but unfortunately it was never published. Bob Sejas has also written articles in the Garand Collectors Association Journal detailing the changes made each year to the SA built NM rifles.
