SPRINGFIELD ARMORY M1 GARAND RIFLE

Springfield Armory M1 Garand rifle

Springfield Armory no longer makes the M1 Garand, but you can find them used or as new in box. It was built to exact US GI specifications from the original blueprints.

The receiver, barrel and stock on the Springfield Armory M1 Garand are newly-constructed, not refurbished. The remaing parts are US GI mil-spec in perfect condition. This is as close as you can get to having a new, unfired M1 Garand.

The rifle is offered in the original Garand .30-06 caliber, or in .308 Winchester. It comes with Springfield Armory's lifetime warranty.

"Love to shoot it but now days its just too costly. It is one best if not the best rifle I've ever owned. Now days I mostly shoot my AR15's or my Ruger mini 14, not vert satisfying but cheep. My Garand was made in 1943 #25b6578 and is in great shape. LOVE IT"

"I think this is , if not the best, then in the top five of military rifles, all time. I just got my second one in today from CMP. It is beautiful, new stock, butt plate, 1+ at the muzzle and 2 at the chamber, `39-`40 W.R.A. bolt and SA Sept. `42 serial number. My other is a Letterkenney rebuild and it is a joy to shoot, never fails. I can`t wait to shoot the new baby in the family.."

"Purchased my M1 from Springfield Armory in 1986 as new in caliber 0.308 Winchester with National Match barrel. I have fired about 500 rounds. I hadn't fired it in 25 years until last week. This weapon is a pleasure to fire and is accurate. I do not use a scope. This firearm is a design masterpiece and is very dependable."

"have one of these with a NM barrel and glass bedded stock originally thought it was a TYPE2 NM but serial number is to high so it must be a SPRINGFIELD made rifle. did not know they did the TYPE2 set-up when they sold these.
does not look like an investment cast receiver"

"I own a Springfield Armory, Inc. M1 Garand bought used, with virtually no previous use. It is all unsissued G.I. parts except the barrel, stock, and Australian Investment Cast receiver (which is very good quality). So, this is essentially a brand-new M1 Garand with non-matching serial numbers.

On my most recent trip to the range, I let one of the snooty regulars shoot it off the bags at a small rock laying on the backstop and his only words were, "Damn, it sure hits what you point it at!"

I use Federal AE3006M1, which it really likes, and Greek Perkal HXP which it appears to like better than the Hornady M1 match ammo. And I now have the GarandGear Ported Gas Plug which I will try with some other flavors of ammo eventually.

It's flawless.

And, as a mechanical engineer, every time I clean it, I discover something new and realize how brilliant J.C.G. was... and what a fabulous design it was then, and still is... But, that's for another discussion.."

" Nobody can figure out why my arsenal refinished springfield M1 jams up or "jumps the clip on the 7th round if the first bullet in the 8 round clip is started on the right. this does not happen if the first bullet is started on the left. this problem even happens when using S.A. clips."

"The M-1 Garand is my favorite rifle and I own 5 of them. Some of you said you had feeding and ejection problems. I suggest you find a gunsmith that is intimately familiar with the rifle. There can be a lot of reasons for malfunctions, but a rifle that has good springs and the bolt timing is correct should not have these problems. Buy a spring set and have it installed. You may be surprised at the improvement. Brownells has them."

"Purchased my 40+ year old M1 from CMP during a trip to Birmingham, AL. I replaced the stock set for aesthetic reasons, but kept the original. This rifle has functioned flawlessly and is a very accurate weapon. Had to knock it down 1 star for its weight, but is an excellent rifle overall."

"This was my standard weapon in 82 Airborne Division 59 to 62.I could field strip this rifle in 9 seconds blindfolded, clean the gas piston and re-assemble ready for firing in less than 60 seconds additional. Other troopers were nearly as fast. We could regularly hit 10" bull at 500 yards. This was an exceptional weapon, and we bitched like hell when issued the M14, though we came to like it almost as well. As a civilian in Vietnam 68 to 70 I was never far from my AK 47 which I came to know as a superb weapon as well."

" It does not eject every round. I clean and lubricate after each firing but it still does not eject. Best shooter I ever shot."

"Beautiful walnut stock quality construction. At the range it has performed flawlessly. Shoots with less recoil than my M1A. Great rifle."

"The only issue I have with my M-1 is the first two rounds will sometimes not eject after shot. It is necessary to manually cycle the receiver. The next 6 rounds fire as normal. This does not occur all the time but the fact that one never knows when, makes the rifle somewhat unrealiable."
