A true legend, the M1 Garand was the first semi-automatic rifle to be used by the military of any nation. The official US Armed Forces service rifle from 1936 through 1957, the Garand saw combat use up through 1966 and is still used by drill teams and military honor guards today, as well as being a highly sought-after firearm for civilian hunting, target-shooting, and collecting. The M1 rifle is a gas-operated, semi-automatic, clip-fed rifle that features an "en bloc" clip system that allows ammunition to be inserted from above, clip included, into the fixed magazine. This Arsenal re-worked rifle has a 1954-dated barrel and a P-stamped stock and features a parkerized finish, a trigger guard safety, and an adjustable trigger with a broken rear sight aperture. Its wood and metal are in good condition and its bore is in very good condition.
