The only full-power, semiautomatic standard infantry rifle in existence during World War II, the M1 Garand remains the most popular high-powered target semiautomatic in the world - and arguably the most rugged and durable. This sequel to The Complete M1 Garand is an up-to-date guide to admiring, shooting and collecting this World War II legacy well into the 21st century. Part One examines its tactical, developmental and industrial history; takes a realistic look at the rifle's perceived"flaws"; and presents savvy advice on buying parts and parts kits for the M1 in today's marketplace. Plus, in response to overwhelming demand, this book incorporates information detailing the M1's World War II and postwar delivery chronology, to be used as a general guideline when restoring an M1. The second half of the book, dedicated to the enjoyment and maintenance of the M1, addresses some common questions about the rifle and offers detailed instruction on some expert procedures for maintaining and smoothing this wartime classic. About the Author Jim Thompson is an internationally published firearms writer, photographer and consultant with more than three decades of experience as a serious collector and shooter.
