This is a site for anyone into shooting. He has literally hundreds of videos about guns....current and historic. Has a shooting range that I would die for.

Check out his different videos.

This is on the Garand. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwLyViUAN6E&t=273s

Only M1 Garand I've ever seen that needed the bolt to be pushed to close on a new clip. Usually that bolt is trying its very best to give you a serious case of M1 Thumb. Reckon he made some sort of modification to his rifle?

CX...Nope, no mods there. I've fired LOTS of them (I own 2) and when loading the clip, the bolt can be a bit sticky and sometimes balks on the first round. A tap with the heel of your hand is all that is generally needed to go into battery.

Guess ours never were given an opportunity to get "sticky." I recall a seeing a number of bloody thumbs, but never saw anybody hafta "tap" that charging handle. But that was more than 50 years ago, so maybe they mostly got sticky since then.

Fine old rifles, those.

The next video that came up for me was this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VsqDxHqdqM

Starting at about 10 minutes in they feature a soldier named Don Burgett who happens to be a cousin of mine. I regret that I've never met him, though last I heard a couple of hears ago he was still alive in his 90's.

He was a paratrooper in the 101st Airborne, the Screaming Eagles. Don wrote 4 books about the war a number of years after he returned home. I have them and can't even describe the detail with which he described his time in the war. I recommend them to anyone with interest in our wartime history.

Thank you, Dave. Excellent treatise video on the venerable M1. I truly enjoyed it. As I mentioned earlier, I have a 1946 issue M1 as well as an MiD sniper version. I bought through the DCM, an M1 many years ago, and as a purchaser, I was given the opportunity, through a lottery, that I won, to buy an M1D. I think it cost me about $650.....and it was a great deal! It's now worth over $3000.....

BTW, CX.....one of the reasons for the "hanging" of the first round, requiring an "assist" on the Op Rod was that, when feeding the clip down, if you didn't push it fully seated....it tended to be a bit higher and tended to "hang" too high and required a bit of help to chamber the first round.

Also, the dreaded "M1 Thumb," which I never had was not generally a problem with loading the clip. It generally happened when you were presenting the rifle to your troop leader for inspection...unloaded and you got didn't get your thumb out of the way when you allowed the bolt to slam home.

Most of the M1 Thumb casualties the result of loading the weapon with a clip with just a couple loose rounds in it. Some of the slower recruits never seemed to learn to do it correctly. I never had to experience the problem for myself, having believed the instructor when he demonstrated that the loading operation needed to be done quickly, regardless content of the magazine. A fella can get educated pretty rapidly when watching his shipmates bleed.

I've had experience with the M1 myself having entered the Army in 1958. I never did trust the bolt to stay open no matter how fast I loaded. Always kept the rest of my digits against the operating rod handle while pushing the clip home. Like CX, I never had to assist that bugger in slamming forward. Best get your thumb out of there quick.

Just as an aside, My M1 in basic training was a Winchester, the only one in the platoon. Another thing, I'm left-handed, but never learned they made left handed M1s until after the Army went to the M-14.
