The only full-power, semiautomatic standard infantry rifle in existence during World War II, the M1 Garand remains the most popular high-powered target semiautomatic in the world ? and arguably the most rugged and durable. This sequel to The Complete M1 Garand is an up-to-date guide to admiring, shooting and collecting this classic rifle well into the 21st century. Part One includes the M1?s tactical, developmental and industrial history, takes a realistic look at its perceived ?flaws? and presents savvy advice on buying parts and parts kits in today?s marketplace. Plus it incorporates charts detailing the M1?s World War II and postwar delivery chronology, to be used as general guidelines when restoring an M1. The second half of the book addresses some common questions about the rifle and covers some of the touchiest aspects of maintaining the rifle. 8 1/2 x 11, softcover, photos, illus., 112 pp. ISBN 158160260X
