Griffin & Howe Springfield Armory  U.S. Model 1922 Converted to 22 Hornet.  Very Rare and Unique Example of

this type of rifle that was the end result of the collaboration of Townsend Whelen and Armory personel.   The

rifle remains in overall excellent condition.  The bore is in,  as new  condition.  Checkering, which is seldom seen

on this type of rifle  is sharp and crisp.  Springfield Research letter on this rifle states that it was shipped to

Griffin & Howe in March of 1934 as a special sale and specifies the caliber  only as "22".  Obviously the

 conversion was done by Griffin and Howe.   The checkering pattern is typical of their usual pattern. 

The barrel caliber has not been changed from "22 Long Rifle Only";

 which is occasionally encountered in Pre-War custom rifles.  Evidently the owner had to

specify everything.  More research on this rifle  could reveal many  more interesting facts about this

already unique rifle.
