M1 Garand Cutaway

I love cutaways. I really, really do. But the truth is I only have so much wall space so selecting some cutaways to buy requires some planning. Up till now, I had never seen a M1 Garand cutaway.

Very, very cool. I also appreciate how it’s displayed. Not only does it reside in a well made case, but it’s also at eye-level. That so the biggest mistake I see with cutaway displays. They tend to be stuck 9-15 feet in the air near a ceiling.

Clearly you can see the op-rod.

Don’t they know the real payoff on cutaways is giving the viewer a chance to look closely at the internals? I’m glad to see in this case, the owner does.

    Really nice. I agree with you on what a fine job it was doing the mounting. Very easy to see the moving parts.

    I love the M1 Garand. I have to agree with Patton when he said the Garand was “The greatest battle implement ever devised.” And at the time he said that, it was true. A magnificent gun, and i love to shoot my original 1943 model Garand. You can see the discoloration on the stock where people had carried it and their sweat had discolored the wood.

    Yeah, yeah, I know more modern rifles are better, but in its day it was a game changer.

      It was still better than the early issue M-16s !
