M1 Garand (1/21)

List item
Approved

Known as the Greatest Battle Implement Ever Devised by General George S Patton, the M1 Garand was an eight shot semi-automatic rifle that fired the .30-06 Springfield round. The big advantage to the M1 Garand over other rifles of the time was the fact that it was a semi-automatic whereas most other services rifles were bolt action. While the Soviets did use the SVT-40 and the Germans the STG44 and Gewehr 43, each of those rifles were produced only in limited runs and the M1 Garand was the only primary service rifle of the war that was semi-automatic.
