    Have no knowledge of BMR or BMB, but taking into consideration that Winchester rode their machines hard and put them away wet ( stored outside after termination of production - they were US Gov NOT Winchester property ) I doubt it.

    True, Lava, and not generally known. Beretta did, however, get WRA's complete set of drawings.

    Looks in good nick considering where its been. Have you had it apart? Are all the components Italianicon? Tried it at the range?
    Thanks.
    All parts were Italian when I took it apart. PB marked for Beretta. I don't think I will be shooting it anytime soon due to the rarity.

    I would do a clip of factory new ball...and then clean it forever. Just so one can say how it shoots. I don't think a clip or box of Federal ball would hurt it...but I hear you...

    Yemeni M1 Garand

    I remember missing out on a Yemeni M1icon in 2011 when it was offered on GB. I'm a bit envious of the original poster's (OP's) great fortune. Congratulations on finding one. I hope to one day add an example to me collection of Italianicon M1's

    The OP cites Ruggero Pettinelli's piece "Il Garand in Italia 1951-1996." It is a great book and is far better than anything out there on the subject of the Italian M1 development. He is also very approachable and has answered a number of my inquiries regarding the development/history of the Tipo II 7.62mm conversions.

    Here is an additional webpage that provides a number of detailed pictures and history on the Yemeni M1 rifles: M1 GARAND YEMENITA

    Best regards,
    Mike

    Picture of my Yemen M1icon Beretta I bought from Bill Orin at the Monroeville Pa. Expo Center in the 80's.



    According to a translation done by a fellow worker at Ford Motor Company:

    Stock marking translation: King of Yemen Kingdom God Believer who defends religion Eman Ahmed Hamid Eldin 1378
