Product Information

This is a superb WWII US M1 Garand rifle. It was made in May 1944 by Springfield in preparation for the D-Day landings of June 1944. The rear sight still has its adjusters, often missing and the barrel is wartime dated, many were re-barreled in the 1950s. The woodwork is correctly marked with the US military "P" ordnance stamp. It comes fitted with a 1944 dated sling. No single small arm is more closely identified with the U.S. World War II infantryman than the rifle sometimes called "the last true butt stroker." The M-1 Garand's sturdy, 10-pound stock- unlike those of its successors-was heavy enough to deliver a lethal blow to an adversary. During WWII Japanese forces whilst engaging US troops armed with Garand's came to recognise the distinctive metallic sound made by the Garand's clip popping out after finishing a clip of ammo. On hearing this sound they would then charge or engage the US riflemen. The US soldiers soon cottoned on to this and would instead drop an empty clip fooling the Japanese soldiers into thinking he was out of ammo and reloading.
