About the Rifle:
The M1 Garand was the first standard-issue semi-automatic rifle and called "the greatest battle implement ever devised" by General George S. Patton.
The Garand officially replaced the bolt-action M1903 Springfield as the standard service rifle of the United States Armed Forces in 1936 (although the switch-over was not instantaneous) and was subsequently replaced by the selective fire M14, starting in 1957.
Here is a video of me firing my WWII Winchester M1 Garand using cast bullets I hand loaded. I tried to give you a feel for what it looks like behind the sights and you do get to hear the "ping" sound at the end!
Click the picture below to see a very interesting training video shown to new recruits during WWII to give them confidence in their weapons versus those of the Germans. Watch the penetration of the 30.06 round as it cuts through a 12" diameter tree and goes through a concrete wall! Fast forward to 4:20 to go straight to the Garand, but all the videos are all worth a look.
