Product detailed description
M1 Garand (officially labeled the United States Rifle, Caliber .30, M1, later Rifle, Caliber .30, M1 and shortly US Rifle, Cal .30, M1) was the world's first self-loading rifle in the armed forces. In 1936, the US Army officially replaced the Springfield M 1903 repeating rifle, which it gradually pushed out of US infantry. The rifle was used as a standard US Army infantry rifle during the Second World War, and since 1941, the United States Marine Corps, but since its slow-moving production began to arrive in larger numbers since mid-1943. during the Korean War. In 1957, this rifle was replaced with a M14 rifle. This, however, did not mean the end of her career as it was provided in considerable numbers under US military assistance to many states of the world. Since 1944 Garand rifles have been rebuilt and licensed in Italy. In the hands of the Vietnamese Republic troops, the weapon participated in the very first phases of the war against the Vietcong.
