Thanks and kindest regards,

The “book of the Garand” by Major General Julian S. Hatcher is also essential reading for any M1 owner or fan. I believe it was published in 1948. It’s an absolutely fascinating book, and is surprisingly available digitally on the iTunes book store. Whether you get a collector type M1 or a refurbished shooter, it will surely become one of the most cherished rifles in your collection. Mine certainly are.
