One comment on “The M1 Garand: The Greatest Rifle of All Time

  1. ROBERT SYKES says:

    By the middle of WW II, the M1 was obsolete. Both the Germans and Russians had developed true assault rifles. The US didn’t get an assault rifle until the M16, more than 20 years later. Army Ordnance still doesn’t understand the concept.

    By the way, there were far more M1 and M2 carbines issued than M1 rifles. Carbines were even issued to infantry units, especially airborne.
