My m1 garand uses a en bloc clip, not a magazine

Non collapsible stock
Not an m14

Does it count as an assault weapon?
It was used in a helluva lot of military action..
Typically, an Assault Weapon has to have 3 things:
-Rifle Caliber
-Pistol Grip &
-Detachable Magazine

However, SMG's (Sub-Machine Guns) are pistol caliber and usually fall under this category as well since the longer barrel creates a higher velocity round. Each state is different tho.

Currently I have;

Bushmaster AR-15 .223/5.56
Remington Police 870 12 gauge
Springfield TRP Operator .45 1911
Springfield EMP 9mm 1911
FNH Five-Seven in OD Green
Snub Nose S&W .38 5-shot revolver

The only thing to wipe on an original Garand stock is raw Linseed oil.

I had a P99AS Compact in 9mm and it was a very fine pistol. I wish I had of held on to it longer.

yeah, short for Springfield Armory

1,358,xxx
so it was made in feb 1943.

Has a ton of pockmarks in the stock from where (I assume) a GI back in the day pounded the clip to line the rounds up, even has drag marks from (what I also assume) being dragged while low crawling.

pretty cool, IMO

grandfather passed it down to me, along with 10+ old school ammo cans; still sealed!

Shot my P22 today..love it. Going from my LC9 to my M&P9c is fun and then finishing off with the slim NO recoil of the little rimfire makes for a fun afternoon.

What brand ammo do you use for your P22? Some reviews were saying that cheap ammo was jamming up. Thanks! -Bandit
