Lets see how many of you try this one:
Ordnance ordered a change in the name for the M1 Garand Rifle.
The old name was "U.S. SEMIAUTOMATIC RIFLE, CALIBER .30 M1"
To this "Rifle, U. S. Caliber, .30 M1"
I needed TWO answers on this one. First when did this change go into effect on all paper work ? When did it go into effect on the stamping of the Receiver ?
Best to all of you and yours Gentlemen, on this Christmas Season.
May many Garands flow to you all in the New Year
