SPRINGFIELD ARMORY MUSEUM





These pictures are from my recent trip to the Springfield Armory Museum in Springfield Mass. USA.

I was lucky enough to be allowed access to the upper floor or pattern room to view the collection of there Garand and M14 prototypes as well as just about every other issue and or prototype firearm from Colonian days to 1970.

You will also see the lower level or first floor of the museum and these firearms are mostly encased in glass.

The first and last National Armory

Overlooking the Connecticut River in western Massachusetts, Springfield Armory National Historic Site offers the story of the American's first national armory. The large museum, year-round public programs, exhibits, and special events speak of nearly two centuries of pioneering American military arms manufacturing.

I am sad to say though that effective immediately the pattern room shown in these photos are no longer available to the general public for viewing anymore.
