Known for its reliability, the M1 Garand Semi Auto Rifles are great for hunting and target shooting. The M1 Garand is a .30 caliber semi-automatic rifle that was the standard U.S. service rifle during World War II and the Korean War and also saw limited service during the Vietnam War. Most M1 rifles were issued to U.S. forces, though many hundreds of thousands were also provided as foreign aid to American allies. The Garand is still used by drill teams and military honor guards. It is also widely used by civilians for hunting, target shooting, and as a military collectible.
How would you like to rate M1 Garand?
I have taken this beauty out to the range a few times now and put everything from Federal 7.62 NATO to Tula .308 and it will eat whatever you feed it. It was very easy to disassemble and clean. I was honestly very surprised at how easy it was to get apart, I have handled some rifles that you practically need an Engineering degree to clean. Once I got the sights dialed in, I began to understand why this sight system is one of the highest regarded as far as iron sights go. Firearms are not a beauty contest, but if they were, this thing would be in the running for sure. The pictures don't do it justice one bit, and the pictures look great. Before I even got the thing to the range, it was already worth every penny I paid, but then getting to go shoot it solidified this as the best gun purchase I have made to date. ...more
Review: Springfield Armory Loaded M1A
The Precision Adjustable stock variant emerged in 2015 and allows the shooter to fit the rifle exactly as he or she desires for cheek weld and length-of-pull. Toolless adjustments can be made by turning a polymer adjustment knob integral to the stock for either the cheekpiece or the buttpad. A significant pistol grip completes the ergonomic treatment, allowing those more acquainted with AR-15- or AK-47-pattern rifles a familiar handhold on the M1A. Even for someone unfamiliar with the general M1A layout, the Springfield Armory Loaded M1A is pretty simple to run. Charge the magazine (a 10-round magazine is included, but 20-round magazines are plentiful), then load it into the rifle. Pull back on the operating-rod handle and release to load, push the safety lever to fire and the rifle is ready. In the Loaded M1A, the trigger is a two-stage, National Match variant with a light takeup and a stiff, but not unduly heavy break. It’s different than a good AR-15 trigger—not bad, just different. Once you become attuned to the M1A’s trigger, it functions quite well and assists in achieving superlative accuracy. ...more
Gun Review: Springfield Armory M1A
Springfield Armory Inc. began to produce the semi-auto M1A around 1974 using surplus GI M14 parts. The M1A launched SA, Inc. as a top shelf firearms manufacturer. The rifle has been popular ever since. The M1A Standard could be made lighter by shaving metal here and there or using composite materials like the SOCOM II variant.The M1A is also a big rifle. While not as long as, say, a Mosin Nagant, the M1A is over 44 inches in length. It will never be confused with a jungle carbine. The M1A’s front sight is a straightforward military blade with protective ears. The rear sight is adjustable for windage and elevation, but there’s only one aperture. The peep sight—barely 1/16th” in diameter—looks to be useless at close range but effective at distance. ...more
