M1 Garand

Jump to: navigation, search

The M1 Garand was the standard rifle of the United States military during the Second World War and the first semi-automatic rifle to be issued as a primary arm by a major armed force, officially replacing the bolt-action Springfield M1903 as the US Army's standard rifle in 1936.

The Garand features a distinctive loading method where the entire 8-round en-bloc clip is inserted into the action, automatically ejecting when expended and locking the bolt open for a rapid reload. The sharp closing of the bolt when a clip was inserted could result in the bolt slamming shut on the operator's thumb, resulting in a condition given names such as "rifleman's thumb" or "Garand thumb."

Much is made of the "ping" sound that occurred when the metal clip landed on a hard surface, but this "disadvantage" imagines that wars are fought as one-on-one duels in perfect silence, and was seldom a factor in reality. In videogames, the Garand is often depicted as impossible to reload without expending the entire clip; this is not strictly true, as it is possible to eject a partially fired clip by pressing the clip latch button and operating the action, though this requires the use of both hands. Soldiers were drilled to fully expend a clip rather than attempt this in combat.

The Garand served in both theaters in WW2 and remained the standard US rifle in the Korean War, being replaced by the select-fire M14 Rifle in 1957, though Garands remained in service until the seventies. The M14 is essentially a Garand redesigned for fully automatic operation and use of a detachable magazine.

There were also 2 sniper variants of the M1 Garand rifle being the M1C (formerly M1E7, introduced in June 1944) and M1D (formerly M1E8, introduced in September 1944). The only difference between the 2 models was the mounting system for the telescopic sights. The M1C could mount the M73, M81, M82 and M84 scopes using a Griffin & Howe mount affixed to the left side of the received, whereas the M1D could mount the M82 and M84 scopes in a Springfield Armory mount attached to the rear of the barrel (for proper identification use the following method: M1C has 2 mounting rings for the sight, M1D has only a single ring). Both served in WW2 and saw relatively limited service in the Korean and Vietnam Wars.

At the end of WW2 there were some trials with a shortened M1 Garand carbine version called the T26 Tanker Garand in the Philippines. Although the weapon has never been officially adopted by the US Forces, there are commercial versions available on the market.

The Garand is popular today, because of its design and effectiveness. General George S. Patton described the Garand as "the greatest battle implement ever devised".

The Type 5 Rifle was a Japanese experimental semi-automatic rifle. It was a copy of the American M1 Garand but with an integral 10-round magazine and chambered for the Japanese 7.7x58mm Arisaka cartridge. Where the Garand used an en-bloc clip, the Type 5's integral magazine was charged with two 5-round stripper clips and the rifle also used Japanese style tangent sights. The Type 5 had been developed alongside several other experimental semi-automatic rifles. However, none of the rifles entered into service before the end of the World War II, with only 250 being made and many others were never assembled. There were several problems with jamming and feed systems, which also delayed its testing.
