Dear Friend

I am from Chile and I want information about the measures of stock of M-1, because I need build one new for my rifle.


It’s great that more people are focusing on making better environmental choices. Plus technology is making it more economical now, and that’s what people really notice. Wind energy, solar power, hybrids and zap EV’s, our choices are good. There are now electric cars being sold everyday, you just plug it into a regular power outlet. When people test drive them they say it’s far more fun to drive an EV.


It never ceases to amaze me that the Brits insisted on using the outdated Lee Enfield when, with some slight modifications (?) for the .303 round, they could have used the Garand instead.

I know which rifle I'D prefer to have 'gone over the top' with!

Not a lot of people know that Kalashnikov copied the Garand design for his machinegun. Garands were sent over to Russia as part of the war aid. He merely turned the gun upside down so the magazine pointed downwards, out of the way and perhaps better balanced. For this he becomes a national hero? Yup.

Please, I'd like to know in what era or year were the Garand revolvers made?

Thank you

The Garand rifle effectively turned a 10 man squad into the same fire power as 100 men, less time was wasted bringing the rifle back to the firing position, and requiring the need to waste time aiming at a new target, we should have adopted that rifle for our own troops in WW2, what a difference that would have made.
