The M25 dim ignition tracer to be exact.
In 1942, the U.S. Air Force determined that a dim ignition tracer was warranted - one that wouldn't blind the pilot. The T10 Tracer was developed during early 1943 and identified by a dull orange tip. It had headstamps of F A 4 and F A 45 and is not hard to find if you know what you're looking for. In July 1945 the T10 became the M25 with a bright orange tip and this remained the official U.S. service tracer for the rest of the life of the caliber.
You could get a deac Garand in Australia but God knows what it would be worth-a live one would be a cat 'D' collector in some states but again would be very expensive-the country is now a closed market for auto/semi auto long arms.
