The M1 Garand is used by most of the men in the 7th Infantry Division, including Pvt. Franklin (Woody Strode on the right). At least one soldier carries a rifle grenade launcher attached to his Garand.

M1 Carbine

The M1 Carbine is used by the officers in the film, including Lt. Joe Clemons (Gregory Peck), and by his radiomen, S/Sgt. Coleman (Norman Fell) and Cpl. Payne (Cliff Ketchum). All of these men use the post-WW2 30-round "Banana" Magazines.

Korean War Era M1 Carbine, with Birch Stock, Adjustable sight, bayonet lug, and twin magazine pouch. Most of the World War II variations of the M1 Carbine were sent back to the Military Arsenals and retrofitted with the Bayonet Lug and adjustable rear sight. This is the version seen after late 1945 and all the way until the 1960s. This version is seen most often in World War II movies, despite being anachronistic for most World War II battles - .30 Carbine
