Garand: Caliber: mm) Action: Gas operated, rotating bolt Overall length: 1103 mm Barrel length: 610 mm Weight: kg Feeding: non-detachable, clip-fed only magazine, 8 rounds. Everone should have at least one of these.
Published first in the January 1994 issue of American Rifleman, the author explains how the rifle so familiar to millions of Americans wasn’t John C. Garand’s initial successful version, the little-known rarity collectors call the “gas trap”
WWII collection: Garand, carbine, Winchester Model and Thompson submachine gun. The Springfield 1903 was a heavily used sniper rifle at the time and is noticeably missing from this collection in my opinion.
