    Default M1 Garand Collection

    I thought I would share my collection of Garand rifles. Three of the receivers, stocks, and internals are of WWII vintage but only one is completely (barrel included) dated from the time period. A very solid and well built piece of American and world history.

    Thanks for having a look.

    Gotta love a Garand - or a stack of them !

    It's amazing that John C. worked for the Springfield
    Armory designing and building this rifle on regular
    'working-mans' wages.........

    Amazing that some of the triumphs of his design would be carried forward into Stoner's creation approximately two decades later. These truly are beasts in comparison to the "black rifle" but they are also weapons with a touch more class.

    Nothing like the "ping" of an empty enbloc ejecting from a Garand! Sweet collection!!

    Love that "ping!" This is a video of a Korean exchange student who was visiting with one of my nieces. She wanted to fire some rifles and pistols so we brought her up to my place. Here she is shooting one of my Garands - the last two rounds in the string of 8.

    Well, that didn't work. Trying to link a Facebook video - says it is supported, but it won't show. I'll have to work on it.
