M1 Garand at 1200 Frames Per Second

Here is a chance to see what actually happens when you pull the trigger on an M1. Be sure to compare these with the last one down which is shown in real time.

Seen that a few days ago. You can see the delay in the op-rod allowing the cartridge case to retract before the unlocking phase begins.

Awesome... first I've seen this. The AR / M-1 comparison was very eye-opening.

Awesome to watch. John Garand was a genius of the first order...he not designed the rifle but the tooling to properly manufacture it. US Rifle M1...the most magnificent rifle ever made. It may be obsolete in today's military world but that takes nothing from it in design, performance and history.
