New 5th revised and expanded edition of The M1 Garand 1936 to 1957 . This revised and expanded guide to the 'greatest battle implement ever' (General George Patton) describes the entire range of M1 Garand production in text and quick-scan charts-dimensions, markings, finishes and changes by serial number range-in the manner our customers have come to expect from North Cape Publications, Inc. Any Garand can be analyzed in minutes to determine if it is 'as manufactured' or to replace parts or rebuild the rifle to return it to its original condition and increase its collector's value. Every part by each of the four manufacturers-pre-World War II, World War II and post-War II-is analyzed and described. The book also provides the most complete analysis yet of the World War II M1 Garand as well as the M1C, M1D and MC 1952 sniper rifles. Included is a thorough discussion of their telescopic sights and mounts to pinpoint which one is correct for a particular period. The U.S. Navy's 7.62 x 51mm NATO rifles, all British, Danish, and other Lend-Lease M1 Garands are described. A classification structure for National Match Rifles has been devised which permits the collector to first determine whether or not a particular M1 Garand is a National Match rifle, and then to determine when it was assembled. We have also included the War Department's World War II list of subcontractors and the markings. This will aid in identifying correct, World War II parts. 240pp.
