Do a search for Winchester M1 carbine... that will answer your questions.

Answer

The question was about the M1 Garand 30-06, not the .30 carbine. No it was not manufactured, but toward the end of WW2 some M1 rifles were modified in the field with the Browning 20-round box magazine. The American M14 and Italian BM-59 rifles were copies of the Garand action with an external box magazine, scaled down to fire the .308 Winchester (7.62mm NATO).

Answer

Winchester produced the M1 Garand during the WWII years only.
