The M1 Garand, was developed by the weapons designer John C. Garand, in 1928. It was a semi-automatic rifle, powered by gas and powered by a block magazine carrying 8 cartridges .30-06 Springfield; when the last bullet was fired, the empty magazine was automatically ejected, producing a characteristic sound, easy to identify. It had an effective range of 550 m, with a high accuracy and shot availability. For these reasons, it became one of the most effective rifles of the Second World War.

The M1 was the first semiautomatic rifle commonly used by the infantry of the United States, reaching to produce more than 5.000.000 units.

General George Patton referred to the M1 Garand as "The best tool of war ever created."

Cosa dire, Ben Fatto, curato nella lavorazione,forse se l'alzo era movibile sarebbe stato ECCELENTE. Nell'insieme una riproduzione OTTIMA.
Ho intenzione di comprare anche l'M1 sperando nell'ottimo lavoro fatto dai tecnici della DENIX con il GARAND.
