Gentlemen

We know that the first Order for M1 Garands from Winchester called for 65,000 M1 Garand Rifles. The contract W-852-ORD-4622 had a "Supplement #5 to the above contract" called for more M1 Garands to be added. The date of this file is Nov. 18, 1941. The US was attacked on Dec. 7, 1941. How many more Winchester M1 Garands were called for in this Supplement ??

Have fun with this one.
