Does every gun shop in America sell the M1 Garand?
The M1 Garand has not been produced since 1956. Obviously, every gun shop does not have one in stock.

The M-1 Garand rifle is an American gas-operated semi-automatic centerfire rifle with an internal 8-round fixed magazine using en-bloc clips. The full official designation of …the M-1 Garand is "United States Rifle, Caliber .30, M-1". "Garand" is the last name of it's designer, John C. Garand. (Mr. Garand himself pronounced his name GA-rand, like "parent") The name is used both to honor him and to distinguish the M-1 rifle from the M-1 Carbine which is a totally different firearm designed by another engineer. The original M-1 design was chambered in .276 Pedersen. However, the US Army had large quantities of M30 Ball (.30-06) on hand that it wanted to take advantage of and the M-1 was redesigned for that caliber. After the US military standardized on the 7.62 NATO round, also known as .308 and 7.62x51, a number of M-1 rifles were converted to it and used by the US Navy until the changeover to the M-14 was completed. The M-1 rifle was the main battle rifle of the United States between 1936 and 1957. After being replaced by the M-14 in 1957 many M-1 rifles were loaned to militaries of other countries (notably, Greece). Today some M-1 rifles remain in limited use as a drill, instructional and ceremonial instruments. The M-1 is also popular on the US civilian market with collectors, recreational shooters, and in certain types of competitive shooting.
The M1 is no longer issued by the US military as a combat weapon. It may be in limited use for ceremonial, drill and instructional purposes. The way to get one in the civilian… market is to buy one from a gun shop or a private seller same as any other firearm, Garand rifles are rather plentiful in the US, and can be acquired fairly easily. One additional way to get an M1 in the US is to buy from the Civilian Marksmanship Program. By law, the CMP can sell surplus military firearms, ammunition, parts and other items only to members of CMP affiliated clubs who are also U.S. citizens, over 18 years of age and who are legally eligible to purchase a firearm.
That is a very difficult to answer. Just in the city were I am there are at least 15 or 20, and probably a lot more. There are 4 or 5 major gun stores and most pawn shops sell… guns, and most gun ranges sell guns. Now that I've said that, there are probably a lot more than 20. Within a couple of miles of my house, there are 10 or 12 pawn shops, and most of them sell guns. That's just in one city, and just inside the city limits, not including the metro area, and we are a relatively small city compared to most other major cities. ********* In order to be in the business of selling guns, the shop must hold a Federal Firearms License, issued by the BATFE. There are approximately 109,000 FFLs in the US. ********* That is correct, but that doesn't mean there are 109,000 gun shops in the U.S. Many of the FFL holders only do transfers for other people, but don't actually have a shop or sell guns. Anyone that applies for a new FFL must have a shop, but people that were processing transfers before the new law a few years ago were grandfathered in and can still process transfers from their home.
That's a matter of opinion. The M1 Garand is larger, heavier and shoots a more powerful cartridge than the M1 carbine. They are two completely different rifles. ----------…----- Its comparing apples and oranges, the Garand is a frontline service rifle, the Carbine is intended for non-combat roles, as a personal defence weapon. The Garand has much longer range and a much larger cartridge with better penetration and power at range. The Carbine fires a small pistol cartridge, its a rounded or flat nosed bullet, traveling at a low velocity, at close to medium ranges, the .30 Carbine causes a wound cavity the size of a basketball, which is of course, instant death in a single hit. The Garand has a pointed higher velocity 30-06 cartridge, it penetrates much farther than the Carbine, and has vastly superior accuracy and range, and its large pointed bullet traveling at 2800 FPS causes a wound cavity the size of a softball, and kills instantly even through body armor. Both are lethal weapons, but they have different purposes, the Carbine is better for close range combat, and the Garand is for longer range combat and for range shots and penetration of material, so neither weapon is better than the other, just like most smallarms are.
The tactical situation will dictate which one would be "better" in a particular engagement scenario. M1 Garand excels at longer ranges. Thompson is much more maneuverable i…n tight quarters and with high ammo capacity and automatic fire is useful against large numbers. In short, squads of soldiers have a combination of arms, submachine guns LMGs and rifles, riflemen and automatic riflemens' roles are to suppress the enemy at long range, and submachine gunners' roles are to close in with and defeat the enemy at close ranges. This combination of weapons in each squad, is what makes the squad so versitile in effectivly dealing with almost any threat and scenerio they come up against.
A well supplied gun dealer will have M1 Garands, and most gun shows. IF you are an adult US citizen, you may also buy an M1 from the US Govt. Do an internet search for Civilia…n Marksmanship program. They also have M1 Carbines, and a few .22 Target rifles. Sorry, No M14s.
100-10000 USD depending on specifics
It changed it by being the first general issue semi-automatic rifle that outclassed all other countries' bolt action rifles, it ussured in the era of fast, highly accurate sem…i automaic rifles, and immediately made the bolt action rifle obsolete as a standard arm for militaries. The M1 Garand wasnt the first semi automatic rifle to exist, some other nations were experimenting with the concept. When John Garand came up with his rifle, it proved to be a breakthrough in rifle design, it was cheap to manufacture, incorperated superior peep sights, more efficient and fast loading and reloading En-Bloc system, was very reliable, has less recoil than bolt action rifles due to the weight, and gas operation system, was made of the finest quality materials avalible, and to top it all off, it was put into the hands of every American soldier and was mass produced, giving the American soldier, the finest battle rifle on the battlefield. The Garand rifle remains one of the 20th century's greatest breakthroughs in firearm technology, and is widely regarded as America's greatest military rifle.
Depends on the laws where you ARE (We get question from several different nations) In the US, if you meet the requirements to own a firearm, you can own an M1 Garand. They a…re even sold by an arm of the US government to US citizens- the Department of Civilian Marksmanship. See the link at the bottom of the page.
It was designed in 1932 by John C. Garand. It started being used by U.S. Forces in 1936 and is still being used today for drilling use.
