Which is the better rifle? I have 1 of each and have been through them pretty throughly. In many ways the FN49 is a better design.
Its gas operating system is less complex then the M1 and has fewer parts. The gas system is also adjustable the m1 is not. Its a pleasure to shoot and seems very accurate.

I love my Garand and will keep it always but it it could have had a close if not superior rival in the FN49.
