Gentlemen,

This is a breakdown of a very early Garand Rifle. I am sorry again for the photo was again on old microfilm. Notice parts that might have come from the Model 1903 Rifles ?? This is not a quiz. I just hope you take a good look at it.




Have fun
Thanks again for taking the time and effort to look at this file.

From the late 30's I think?

Almost looks like a Pederson. the barrel bands and front sight are definitely 1903, maybe even the h.g.

The picture is of one of the early prototype rifles.

Gentlemen,
The timeframe for this Garand is about 1925.
Thanks again

I saw one of the prototype rifles at the Louisville Gun Show about 5 or 6 years ago. The gentleman selling it had some connection with the Garand family, friend of son-in-law or something. Pricetag was $250K. The same guy was selling a super low Serial# gastrap, like 95, and the price on it was $35K IIRC. It was pictured in the GasTrap book whatever the number was.
