Side question; did they ever make a full-auto version of a Garand? Internal capacity was small, admittedly, so I guess it wouldn't make much sense. Still, would be awesome

I've never heard of one coming from the factory as such. They had the Thompson or the BAR for full auto duty. However, some veterans have mentioned that they modified their M1's to go FA.

The Garand was semi-auto only from the factory, which was a huge advantage over every other nation, as everyone else was running bolt rifles as their main battle rifles.

Right, and at the time, semi-auto or "self-loader" rifles was a new technology that many old timers didn't think had the reliability to be carried into combat. There were many campaigning to keep the bolt action M1903 in service, because the semi-auto garand was just way too complicated to survive on the battlefield.

It's not like the traditional stance, where your firing shoulder lags behind the other (like yours).

Amy thoughts on this?

+1

i know it ultimately comes down to personal preference but im curious as to why you use the stance you (reedo, david too why not)do? i know at least for me, reedo's style stance is just more comfortable, especially with a non-collapsable stock; i also seem to shoot more accurately at a slower rate. and david's style, while a little more uncomfortable seems to lend it self better to muzzle control and recoil management during more rapid engagements


EDIT: just happened to check facebook and found this shared by bravo company: i know its pistol but it is still relevant to our interests

I square my shoulders because it forces me behind the weapon to absorb recoil better. If your firing shoulder lags behind, the recoil is really pushing your shoulder back and twisting your torso. Whereas if you square up, you tend to get more mass behind the rifle which helps to reduce muzzle rise and allows for quicker target acquisition and engagement. That's just his I feel at least

There wear experiments with FA garands in the US, they eventually turned in to the m14 with much modification.

The italians had a "closer" version of a FA garand called a BM-59


I have a berda BM-52 myself, a variant of the m1 produced by the italians for there military post war.




Garands was kinda my "thing" for a while.

I may be posting up a better picture list soon. Started cleaning them all the other day. Right now, at the current rate for a detailed cleaning we calculated it out that it will take two of us 40 hours straight to clean them all. Gotta put a few hours in each night.

Na, I've done culled out the last of the unwated guns. I'll probably keep that lot until I die.

Learned to field strip and clean my gun earlier today after putting a little over 150 rounds through it



Used frog lube which I ended up ordering a set of for myself.. seems like decent stuff
