Adoption of the M1 Garand/1936
While down at Aberdeen Proving Grounds in the Museum the sign for the M1 Garand Display showed it was adopted in 1942. While there I was working with Dr. Atwater, PH. D, Director at APG, he also is on the History Channel. I showed him some of my files on the M1 Garand showing it was adopted in 1936 even though NO production M1's were built until 1937. At that time we also when over the T 20 "Tanker" Garand. These files show when the M1 Garand was Standardized in Jan. 9, 1936. If you need a better copy just email me.

Some of these posted before. Others are new data files.
Warning, before you go to my sites lower your volume as the opening page contains a sound file which has a loading and firing of the M1 Garand. So if you're at work or home it may be wise to check your volume control.
