Most famous of all American battle rifles, the MI Garand is described on a part by part basis, by serial number range & manufacturer. From the first of the gas trap rifles through the National Match & Navy 7.62 x 51 mm NATO Ml's, this is the most complete book ever written on the MI Garand.
'This brand new guide to the "greatest battle implement ever" (General George Patton) describes the entire range of MI Garand production in text and quick-scan charts--dimensions, markings, finishes and changes by serial number range in the manner our customers have come to expect from North Cape Publications. Any Garand can be analyzed in minutes for "as manufactured" or to replace or rebuild parts and return it to its original condition to increase its collector's value. Every part by each of the four manufacturers, pre-World War II, World War II and post-War is analyzed and described. The most complete analysis yet of the M1C, M1D and MC52 sniper rifles, and their telescopic sights and mounts. The U.S. Navy's 7.62 x 51mm NATO rifles are described and a classification structure for National Match Rifles has been devised.
British, Danish, Italian and other foreign M1 Garands are also included in this revised edition.
