A rare early specification (1990) deactivated US Garand This is by far the best example we have ever seen and would make a worthy addition to any collection. 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. At the finest rifle ranges in the world the M-1 Garand still competes in and regularly wins high-powered, military-format matches at ranges up to 1,000 yards. The only rifle that regularly outscores John Garand's design is its direct progeny, the M-14. James L. Thompson. General George S. Patton called it the "best battle implement ever devised." This example comes with its leather sling and 16 rounds in their clips (and yes they do go ping)
