    Post Rifle Marksmanship with the M1 Garand Rifle (1942)

    The following video(s) are excerpts which have been extracted from the Videos Category (click here) of our main Knowledge Library (click here).
    Rifle Marksmanship with the M1icon Garand Rifle
    (1942 Training Videos and Companion Book)

    These are excellent videos for those who would like to know more about rifle shooting. They are great for both the beginner and the expert who needs a refresher. The series focuses on the M1 Garand, but the techniques can be applied to any rifle. Part one covers sling usage and shooting positions. Part two covers sight adjustments and also has one of the BEST explanations of windage adjustments EVER. The film was made in 1942/43 for the U.S. war department and is now in the public domain, so it can be copied and recopied at will.

    Special thanks to Jack A Sol of the Revolutionary War Veterans Association for making these videos available to the general public.

    To view this video, press the PLAY button, or any area in the centre of the video window. Note the other optional video controls also available on the control bar located underneath the video screen. You may use the PAUSE and other buttons to adjust your personal viewing preferences, or click on the video itself to stop and start playback. Make sure you turn on your speakers and set the volume appropriately.

    This is a 1943 official training Film of the U.S. War Department displaying the principles of operation of the U.S. CAL. .30 M1 Rifle better known throughout WW2 as the “Garand”. Signal Corps ordnance experts demonstrate the intricacy of the firing mechanism behind the most expensive and one of the best rifles of the Second World War.

    The above films came with a companion training book titled "How to Shoot the U.S. Army Rifle" and other articles shown below. It includes the missing first section on sighting. There is also an article that was being used for a bookmark on "Snap Shooting" and pics of the "Sighting Training Device".
