The .30 Cal Garand was the first automatic rifle to be used as the standard infantry weapon of a major army when it was adopted by the U.S. Army in 1936. Its rugged construction and reliability make this weapon a popular and valuable addition to anyone.”— Fallout Tactics description
Background[edit | edit source]
The M1 Garand, surnamed "the greatest battle implement ever devised", was created in 1936 by John Cantius Garand and was the first semi-automatic rifle to be generally issued into the U.S. Army. It's a gas-operated, semi-automatic, clip-fed rifle using a clip of 8 cartridges caliber .30-06. It provides good accuracy up to 100 m and begins to declined sharply from 300 m. It has a respectable rate of fire and it's also easy to disassemble and clean.
