The M1 Garand is a classic piece of American history. Developed by John C. Garand and adopted in 1936, it was used as the standard-issue rifle for the United States Army and Marine Corps during World War II and other conflicts. There are few experiences more rewarding than shooting an M1 Garand: From hearing its distinctive “ping” when an empty clip is ejected to feeling the recoil of a full power .30-06 when firing each round, it certainly lives up to its legendary status!

What is the M1 Garand?
The M1 Garand is an iconic semi-automatic, gas-operated rifle designed by American engineer John C. Garand, and was the standard-issue service rifle of the United States Army and United States Marine Corps during World War II and the Korean War. Chambered in .30-06 caliber and featuring an 8-round en-bloc clip, it was the first semi-automatic rifle to be widely issued to a modern military, replacing bolt action rifles that were still commonly in use. A semi-automatic rifle doesn’t require its users to manually work the action after every shot, which means that shots can be made much faster than with a bolt action rifle. The clip also made reloading much faster than many bolt-action firearms at the time.
Is the M1 Garand still used by the U.S. Military?
Yes, the M1 Garand is still used for ceremonial functions by some units in the U.S. Military. The M1 Garand is no longer used in combat or as a service weapon by the U.S. Military, as it was replaced in 1957 by the M14 rifle, and later by the M16 and M4. However, the rifle still serves as a ceremonial rifle for a handful of units, such as the United States Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon, the Air Force Academy Cadet Honor Guard and others.
