The complete story of the M1 Garand service rifle told by one of today's foremost arms authors and researchers. Nothing even approaching this level of detail has ever been attempted before, as Canfield not only covers the Garand's production and issue both in the United States and elsewhere, but also includes hundreds of pages aimed at showing the collector exactly what to look for when examining a rifle that is being offered for sale. Even accessories and accoutrements are given the same level of intense scrutiny. A true tour de force of gun scholarship and an absolutely indispensable tool for collectors and historians alike.

Through a special exclusive arrangement with Mowbray Publishing, we’ve setup a unique order page for members of our Milsurps M1 Garand Rifles forum.  If members click on this banner advertisement, you’ll be taken to a special order page where you will receive 1/2 off the regular shipping costs!
