    I have an International Harvester, one of the last ones made. It's a post Korea serial number, so it didn't see any action. The M1 is one sweet rifle!!

    Also have an FN-FAL (Century Arms FrankenFAL), SKS and a Swedish M-96 Mauser, another Very Sweet rifle!

    Here is a pic of mine that I got from my Grandfather. Its a Springfield Armory and was built in 1946 between October and November. Also Just recently got a M1 carbine from him as well. I have shot this a few times already and its a blast to shoot. Have not shot the M1 carbine yet. I have no magazines for it yet.
    Here is the Garand.

    I use to have probably a half dozen M1 Carbines years ago, they were so cheap to get back then. Now... I kinda wish I kept one.

    I have a Special Grade Garand and two Service Grade Carbines from the CMP. I want to get more, but it probably won't happen this year. I'm building an AR (my first) and trying to add to my modern rifle collection.

    I have a Springfield M1 Garand and a serial number search said it was made in 1944.
    Also have a bayonet for it that was made during the Korean war. I think it's shorter than the WWII version bayonet.
    I should take a picture I guess.

    .22 on roids? 30-06 is like ten .22 rounds on roids all rolled into one bullet with a rocket motor attached to them.

    I think he meant the carbine, which is not 30-06 but .30 cal.
    Nice rifle, I've fired one a bunch but don't own one....yet.

    Here's a picture of my Garand.
