As some of you know I have taken a bit more interest in the M1 rifle of late.  I found this article to be quite informative.

The M1 is a great rifle, lots of history behind them. I shot rifleman with one of mine in 2008 at a boot camp in Ramseur. It's one of the few rifles you can buy from the government though CMP. Plenty of people selling parts and easy to maintain and after the last round is fired, you get the ping. The Ruger 10/22 is a great trainer for the M1 Garand too. Here's some 10/22 LTR's that I made for my daughter and son to use at Appleseeds in 2009. I weighted the M1 one to feel like a Garand. The M1 Garand is a rifleman's rifle as well as the M14.
