Take a Look at a M1 Garand in Pristine Condition

As most of  you, many of you, who regularly read this blog know, I enjoy the shooting sports and my particular hobby at this point is collecting, studying, and shooting WWII era military surplus rifles, particularly those from the American arsenal, the weapons that the average GI Joe carried in battle and literally saved the planet from the evil axis powers. Here’s a video I took of the M1 Garand I own that is in the best condition. It is a mint condition M1 Garand from 1955. Enjoy.

    I’m surprised by all the beautiful wood!

    Is this the weapon that has the 8 round clip… that must be shot out before reload?

      Yes, the M1 Garand uses what is called an “en bloc” clip, into which are loaded eight rounds of .30-06, when the last round is expended, it is extracted, and ejected, and the clip itself pops out of the magazine area, with a very audible “ping” sound. It’s quite an ingenious system that took nearly forty years finally to achieve, in such a manner that the rifle was reliable enough to field.

    Nice gun… Personally, I just got a RedDot sight for my Ruger Mk 3 22/45 and am looking forward to doing some plinking/squirrel hunting. I share your passion for guns and enjoy your publishing talents, but the flowing emotive musical background for your expose on the M1 makes me think you are teetering very close to the edge of sanity. The music would be beautifully appropriate accompaniment for men rushing the beaches of Normandy but oddly euphoric for staring at serial numbers of a gun strapped in the sighting bench. Perhaps, you should give yourself reason for such firearm collecting jubilation by purchasing a Benelli shotgun! Steve
