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.

Answer . The M1 was designed by John C. Garand at the Springfield Armory. Once the design was finalized, a contract to produce the rifle was awarded to Winchester. After WWII, International Harvester Corporation and Harrington & Richardson produced the M1 until the mid-50's. Some rifles were l…icense-produced in Denmark and Italy. Presently, M1 rifles are made for the civilian market by Springfield Armory, Inc. of Geneseo, IL. ( Full Answer )
On an m1garand you stick in a clip then slide the bolt forward.After that your ready to shoot,when you get done shooting all the bullets the clip should pop out then you put in another clip then slide the bolt forward.after that you just keep repeating until you are done shooting. The M1 Garand use…s an eight-round staggered clip which loads from the top, and the clip remains inside the rifle during operation. The rifle is semi-automatic, ejecting the spent cartridge case and loading a new cartridge with each pull of the trigger. On firing the eighth round the empty clip is also ejected. Pictures of the M1 Garand are available on the Internet. As the weapon loads from the top, there is no magazine release. The trigger and bolt handle are conventionally placed, but the safety is unusual in that it is located in front of the trigger, so that it can be manipulated with the trigger finger instead of the thumb.

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. G…arand 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. ( Full Answer )
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 th…e 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.

M1 is a highly collectible rifle. A complete one can run anywhere from $300-5000 depending on the specifics of the item.
Yes, from several countries. The reimportation stamp will be on the barrel.. Yes, from several countries. The reimportation stamp will be on the barrel.
yes, a center fire rifle. Either in 30/06 or 308 caliber. The M1 garand was a 1936 product of the military but did not see much service until the beginnng of WW2
When each bullet is fired the gas given off from the round goes down the gas cylander and auto loads the next round into the chamber and preps it for firing. The bullet is propelled down the barrel by hot gases. Just before the bullet leaves the barrel there is a small hole. Gases are vented out of… the hole into a gas chamber. The gases push on a rod which rotates the bolt unlocking it from the receiver and then pushes the bolt back. This ejects the spent casing. There is a spring in the operating rod that stops it from sliding back anymore and then pushes it forwards again. As the bolt comes forward it strips a new round from the clip and pushes it into the chamber. The operating rod continues forward until the bolt is locked down again. ( Full Answer )
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 mile…s 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.

Go to CMP to find M1 Garands and M1 Carbines. Also, go to http://www.m1garand.com, they will tell you everything...
It depends on many factors such as the condition, the history, the amount of shots fired, and many other factors. Prices can range from 500 to 15,000(only in mint condition WWII era rifles).
Airsoft M1 Garands go for around $400, and can be found at numerous airsoft gun sites. Realistic non firing replicas are made by Hudson, and go for around $600
Rate of fire, ammo capacity, great reliability, long range accuracy, better sights, faster loading times
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 ro…les, 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.

\nAirsoft M1 Garands are often hard to find in stores, however online shops such as Redwolf Airsoft sell gas-operated Marushin, Tanaka and Maruzen M1 Garands, all of excellent quality. Unfortunately they are all very costly ( the minimum value being around 300 UD and the maximum around 1000 UD.
The M1 Garand is widely regarded by military historians, veterans, firearms experts and analysts around the world as the overall best rifle of WWII, and the finest rifle the United States has ever issued. Probably the twentieth century's most significant, and admired rifle, awell as one of the great…est firearms technological breakthroughs. However the term "best" cannot be applied to any single rifle, each era, and time period/conflict has its different needs, tactics, requirements and doctrines. In WWII/Korea, the M1 rifle proved to be the most effective, and dominating service rifle of the war, all other rifles of the world were either slower more primitive bolt action rifle designs of the late 19th century, or were semi-automatics that were plagued with high costs, relativly poor quality, and overly-complicated systems that were never generally issued to all troops. The Garand design (unlike the other semi-automatics which were designed in only a couple of years and under wartime conditions and limited development and production budgets) was designed over the course of 2 decades, and had all its problems smoothened out, and was designd with a practically infinate budget, it proved time and again to be extermely rugged, reliable, and solid under extremely poor conditions, also it was extremely simple to operate, and mantain in the field and soldiers loved it, swore by it, phraised it and bet their life on it, and it came through with flying colors. It was so well designed that it remained in service from 1936 to 1965, and (if it weren't for the adoption and standardization of box magazine fed assault rifles post war), it would likely have remained the primary service rifle even today. Over 2 dozen foreign nations adopted it as their standard service rifle after the war, quickly retiring their British and German made rifles for the new more effective M1s, The Garand design is still in full use today, known as the M-14/M-21DMR/EBR, also as the civilian M-1A,and Ruger Mini 14 and Mini 30, awell as the mlitary/law enforcement AC-556 assault cabines. Its well respected and revered design is also found in many foreign made designs, such as the Itailian BM-59. The Japanese in WWII had captured a number of M1s and had even gone against the tradition of only using Japanese designed weapons, and attempted to copy the Garand and designate it "Type 5", however none saw any service, and ony made it to he conceptual testing phases before the war ended.

The M1 is loaded with the En-Bloc clip, holding eight 30-06 cartridges... Pull the operating lever (attached to the right side of the bolt, looking from the rear) back until the bolt locks open. Insert the loaded clip from the top, pushing it down with your thumb until it seats. Get your thumb ou…t of the way! As soon as the clip seats it will release the bolt, which will travel forward and pick up and chamber the first cartridge. The weapon is now loaded and ready to fire. When the clip is empty the weapon will automatically eject the empty clip and the bolt will remain locked open for insertion of a new clip. You can easily eject the clip manually any time. Pull the bolt all the way back, and hold it in place firmly (this ejects the chambered round automatically), then press the clip latch on the left side of the receiver, the clip will then eject out of the magazine. ( Full Answer )
No. The M1 was replaced in 1957 by the M-14, though the Garand was in combat until the mid 1960's when it was officially retired from combat.
Production began in 1936, and ended in Italy in 1957.but it is still in use at army camps for at the shooting range
400-500 yards with a 4 inch grouping, but it is capable of shooting up to about 1000 yards, a 12 inch grouping.
Near 6.5 million between 1936-1957. M-1 rifles are being still being built by private collectors and the CMP in limited quantities.
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 in tight quarters and with high ammo capacity and automatic fire is useful against large numbers. In short, squads of soldi…ers 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. ( Full Answer )
The M1 Garand shoots a 30-06 caliber round. When the Garand was first being developed, it was intended for a cartridge known as the .276 Pedersen, which was dropped in favor of the larger 30-06. The US Navy attempted to convert some M-1 Garands to the 7.62 NATO cartridge in later years with very lim…ited success. ( Full Answer )
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 Civilian Marksmanship program. They also have M1 Carbines, and a few .22 Target rifles. Sorry, No M14s.
21 years as the official U.S. rifle, and 31 years total in American military combat service, and is still in service with U.S. military drill teams, and cerimonial honor guards, though is long since retired from combat. It is still in use by many folks all around the world.
the worth of an object is subject to what one is willing to pay for it. that aside, i have seen rather rough garands go for the $800 range. i was offered $1000 for mine which is a Service Grade Winchester.
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 semi automaic rifles, and immediately made the bolt action rifle obsolete as a standard arm for militaries. The M1 Garand was…nt 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. ( Full Answer )

It held more ammunition per clip than most of the weapons used by the opposing forces in the Second World War, and it was self loading, which made for quicker follow up shots, or quicker times to engage a second target, as the firer didn't have to manually engage the bolt to load the next round. It …also had a better sight picture with the peep sights. The Garand was also as accurate as any bolt action rifle out to 850 yards (though combat typically took place only out to 200 yards and under) the M1 held every advantage over the enemy's bolt action rifles in the war.

The Garand is a highly collectible rifle. The last of the MILITARY Garands were made in the 1950s. If you have an original, military, unfired, new condition Garand (and not a rebuild) the value can only be determined by a competing buyer sale, such as an auction. Depending on which of the models of …the Garand, this could be several thousand dollars. One that has been used but is in original excellent condition would be over $1000. PS- only unfired Garand I have seen is in a museum. Ft. Benning GA. ( Full Answer )
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 are even sold by an arm of the US government to US citizens- the Department of Civilian Marksmanship. See the link at the bott…om of the page. ( Full Answer )
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.
first you need to have used a different battlefield game online with the same account as your bc2 account then go onto the bf bc2 website and sign up then click on veteran it should be obvious from there (check YouTube there might be other ways to do this
miltech garands look great and their price is great. why not look at other sites such as: gunboards.com gunbroker.com. gunsinternational.com
Originally walnut, but birch and beech have also been used. Per the US Civilian Marksmanship Program - which sells M1 Garands to US citizens.
The M1 Garand is a full size rifle and shoots the 30-06 rifle round. The M1 carbine is a much smaller rifle for personal defence that shoots a 30 cal. round ,far less powerful then the 30-06 at long range shooting (though the Carbine was never intended for long range combat) but does great damage at… close/medium range. The Garand was issued to foot soldiers the carbine was normally issued to men such as radio men,mortar men, paratroopers etc. Many men liked them because the shorter carbine was easy to use in vehicles and buildings, was lighter, faster and easier to bring up to eye-level, and did more damage to human targets at close range, and less collateral damage than the 30-06 did. The Garand was loaded by an En Bloc clip, holding eight rounds, effective out to 900+ yards, while the Carbine had a box magazine holding 15 rounds, effective to 300 yards (though ideal range is 150 yards and under) ( Full Answer )
Purchase from a dealer or private seller. If you are a US citizen over 18, and participate in organized shooting, you can buy one from the Civilian Marksmanship Program. See link below:
I unlocked it by using my BFBC2 game and the free Battlefield Heroes game. You need at least 2 games connected to your account, so this works. You have to download the Heroes game and play a few rounds. If it doesn't show up in your veteran status, contact EA and tell them to fix it for you.
The Garand fires the 30-06 rifle cartridge, and the Carbine fires the .30Carbine personal defence (pistol) cartridge.
At the "balance" of the weapon. Just forward of the trigger mechanism. And practice a lot.
the only real m1s are gas powered but company's make guns like them (echo 1 m14) that are battery powered.
That question was settled in WW II. People with the K98 lost. The Garand and Mauser have nearly the same energy and accuracy, but the Garand is an 8 shot semi-automatic, and the Mauser is a 5 shot bolt action. The M1 was clearly the dominant rifle of WWII, not because of it's service length (i…t was a new comer to the table) but due to its general issue to all U.S. troops, its simplicity, its great accuracy, its extreme battle proven reliability, and because of the fantastic effectiveness it obtained when put up against the now-outdated bolt action rifle systems. The Garand was designed to out shoot, and outpeform every existing service rifle in every other country, it had simpler and more effective peep sights, automatic clip ejecting, making reloading that much faster, ejecting clips part way through was faster and easier than adding single rounds that bolt actions were required to do, its gas operation also reduced the recoil making it faster to stay on target than bolt actions, this, combined with the better sight picture of the peep sights, semi-automatic capability, and the automatic clip ejecting and clearng of the magazine made the M1 Garand the dominant force multiplyer of service rifles in WWII and Korea. The Garand really had no significant oppositon in WWII in terms of better service rifles the only "close" competition, was the Russian, SVT-40 and German Gewehr 43, though those were expensive to make, very complicated systems, and had reliability issues in prolongued combat envronments where cleaning them was impossible, due to either somewhat poorly made parts, or poor design flaws. Plus they were never generally issued due to these reasons. The Garand had none of these problems. ( Full Answer )
While it may look snazzy, it is really not a good practice. The 8 round en block clip holds 2 rows of 4 cartridges each. The sling is pressed into the center of the two rows. When grabbing the clip in a hurry, it is possible to snatch the cartridges out of the clip, where they will go flying.
no, the M1 Garand was not. it was cleared for production in November 1935, then standardized in January 1936. it was successfully proof-fired, function-fired, and fired for accuracy in July 1937
