Complete M1 Garand by Jim Thompson
Book DescriptionA heavily illustrated, practical history for shooters and collectors alike, this book tells the complete story of the robust M1 Garand. The M1 Garand (formally the United States Rifle, Caliber .30, M1) was the first semi-automatic rifle to be generally issued to the infantry in any nation. In 1936, it officially replaced the bolt-action Springfield M1903 rifle as the standard service rifle of the United States military (the M1903 retaining a valuable role as a sniper rifle), and was subsequently replaced by the select-fire M14 in 1957. However, the M1 continued to be used in large numbers until 1963, and to a lesser degree until 1966. The M1 was used heavily in World War II, the Korean War, and, to a limited extent, in the Vietnam War. Most M1 rifles were issued to American troops, though many were also lent to other nations. It is still used by various drill teams and is a popular civilian firearm. High-quality, detailed photos, functional and troubleshooting data, including original military manuals, market information and much more make this a valuable resource on a classic battle rifle.
