M1 Garand Run and Gun

The M1 Garand is a truly magnificent rifle that became a very potent symbol for a generation of American fighting men. Loaded with 8 round en-bloc clips, the M1 semi-automatic rifle showed the world that entire armies could be armed effectively with semi-automatic firepower. In this run and gun, we put the M1 to the test!

    We had some of these to Fam Fire back in the old days, I loved shooting them.
    I've seen them in .308/7.62 x 51 mm NATO which had a plastic or metal chamber insert to make the change to 7.62 x 81 NATO from 30.06 how this worked with the clip I do not know.
    The old Corps Marines among us stated in regards to the eight shot clip was, "when ever you had to shoot the M-1 you shot the entire clip at one time and just reloaded" this is from the Korean war era Marines. Though I've heard WW2 Vets in my family say pretty much the same thing, empty the rifle and reload when you did shoot it at something was better than spacing out the shots and waiting.
    Unknown how true this was.

    The M1 is a great rifle. I'll always have one.
