30-06 Springfield
Description
Not many guns gain popularity in an entire country, but the M1 Garand cetainly did. It is often referred to as the "United States Rifle", and was produced for over twenty years after its introduction in 1936. It was deployed in the Second World War and in the Korean War, and was seen as a great success - over six million were manufactured. It relied on clips of eight bullets, which was occasionally criticised in comparison to a magazine. However, inventor John Garand pointed out that a clip mechanism meant the integral magazine could never be lost by clumsy soldiers, and the system could not be blocked by dirt. Eighty years since its original conception, this gun is still incredibly well sought-after, mostly by gun collectors and competitors in various marksmanship challenges. It was created in the Springfield armoury specificially for use with the .30-06 cartridge. Take a look at the 30-06 bullet by following the link!
