M1 Garand

From Internet Movie Firearms Database - Guns in Movies, TV and Video Games
Jump to navigation Jump to 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." 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.

Much is made of the "ping" sound that occurred when the metal clip ejects or lands 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. A survey of users during the Korean War found a small number concerned over the possibility, but far more deemed it a helpful reminder of needing to reload than a potential hazard.

The Garand served in both theaters in WWII 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. After WW2, many European countries made use of the Garand during the early days of NATO, both by rearming themselves with US Surplus/Aid and some Italian production. The M14 and Beretta BM59 are essentially Garands redesigned for select-fire 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, with the first needing to be installed during a rifle's construction and the second requiring only a barrel swap. 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. The relative inaccuracy of the M1 as an early semi-auto and difficulties with the production of the scoped variants made the sniper variants relatively rare.

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. After NATO's adoption of 7.62x51mm NATO, many M1s were converted to use the new ammo (either by a total rebarreling or less reliable barrel sleeve) and produced in the caliber to start.

The Garand is popular today, because of its design, effectiveness and historical presence. The rifle's legacy is significant enough that original spec M2 Ball (required to run the rifle reliably without modification) is still produced in significant numbers. General George S. Patton described the Garand as "the greatest battle implement ever devised".

Type 4 - 7.7x58mm

The Type 4 (Japanese: 四式自動小銃, Yon-shiki jidousyoujyuu), also referred to as the Type 5, is an experimental Japanese semi-automatic rifle, a copy of the M1 Garand. It is chambered in the Japanese 7.7x58mm Arisaka cartridge and fed via a 10-round fixed magazine, which is loaded with 5-round Arisaka stripper clips. Japan experimented with several semi-automatic rifle designs throughout the 1930s, but none were found suitable for combat. When the war in the Pacific broke out, Japanese forces found their bolt-action Arisaka rifles outgunned by American troops with M1 Garands and sought to introduce a more modern design to compete. Rather than building a new weapon from the ground up, it was decided to simply copy the M1 Garand instead. While cosmetically distinct from the Garand, the Type 4 functions as almost an exact replica of the M1 Garand.

Design of the Type 4 began in 1944, with full-scale production slated for later in 1945. However, the surrender of Japan meant production ceased without the rifle ever seeing any reported combat use, leaving much of its merits as a service rifle unknown. Approximately 250 were produced, with only about 125 actually assembled. 20 were taken by the victorious Allies for study and display, with a few turning up on the private market to this very day. Most recently, a Type 4 was sold at auction in August 2020 for $31,500 USD.
