M1 Garand 8 Round Clip - Oversized for Training Rifles


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have in my collection a reproduction of cartridges clip for rifle Garand.

You can see it is large-sized with regard to a real clip.

 

I would like to know what was the custom of this object? For instruction? A toy ? Or a simple gadget ?

 

And what era using ?

 

Thank's for all information.

I believe what you have was used with over-sized training M1s. They were large rifles (6 or 7 ft long), that were functional and had cut away areas to show how parts of the rifle functioned. Used for training.

 

As far as age, I'm thinking WWII, but that's just a guess.

 

Neat! :thumbsup:

This WWII vet from the 30th Div carried a BAR and would love to have a training replica if anyone knows of one. He has the BAR just wants the training model.

 

Here is his Garand trianer. There are several colors of ammo for it. I have seen yellow, green and black.

These were popular in surplus stores after the war to hang for display.I recall seeing an M1 and a Carbine in a store in Colorado in 2001 when we took a bike trip out there.Back in the 70s there was one in Ames Iowa in the surplus store there.Now long gone.

If anybody's traveling through central Texas, there used to be a surplus business in Gatesville (on the outskirts of Ft. Hood) called "Wide World of Surplus". In the early 90s, you could sweet-talk them into letting you crawl around in their warehouse. I remember being up in the "attic" and seeing a dozen or so of these trainer Garands (and possibly some other weapons, e.g., BAR) in various states of completeness. Last time I was there (late 90s) they wouldn't allow me to crawl around inside anymore and I haven't been back since. It's possible they're still in business in Gatesville and they may still have these trainer rifles.

The U.S. Army is very big on scale models for training. When I was teaching at the U.S. Army Missile & Munitions Center School, Redstone Arsenal there was a model shop that would build scale models of just about anything we needed for teaching. Missile launchers, transport vehicles, missiles, and anything you could think of could be constructed if the model shop was given enough lead time. The models they turned out were not inexpensive!
