    John Garand's Garand up for auction.

    Afraid I will just be content to admire and drool.

    "One interesting tidbit worth mentioning: Garand accepted zero royalty payments from the U.S. government, and the Rock Island listing includes a letter from one Montana resident offering to contribute to the “share of what is due…for his invention of the M1” in the form of an (uncashed) check for $1."



    Amazing man and firearm. I'm sure someone or some institution will give it a good home. Priceless..

    AS that is the grail weapon for a lot of people, most of us will have to settle for copies. Thanks for sharing

    I'd pay 'em just to let me hold it for a minute or two.
