Product Information

This is a WWII US M1 Garand rifle. It was made in July 1942 by the Springfield Armory. That month the Springfield Armory only produce 58,378 Garand's and by the end of the war they had made nearly 4 million. 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 Garands came to recognise the distinctive metalic sound made by the Granads 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.
