POTD: Korean War M1C Sniper Garand

    M1C Sniper Garand

    One of the purposes of TFB’s Photo Of The Day is to broaden the audience for the excellent work done by professional photographers of firearms. A perfect picture may take everything between a split second to months of planning, and it would be sad to see that kind of work go unnoticed and disappear. Like this M1C Sniper Garand picture, for instance. Just imagine the history behind it!

    Here is the caption with some background, provided by Cinematic Arms:

    Kicking off 2022 with an M1C Sniper Garand. This M1C is equipped with an Alaskan Lyman 2.2x scope and cheek riser. This served in the Korean War, was rebuilt and imported back into the United States. Thanks to CS Arms in Upperville, Virginia for letting me shoot some of their inventory.

    You can compare it with the WWII German Mauser K98 Sniper Rifle, taken by the same photographer.

    For more excellent work by Francis Torres please check: The Colt SP-1 (1967) and The Norinco Type 56-2.
