M1 Garand Instructional Resources

On his Firearm User Network website, our friend John Buol has published a series of resources for M1 Garand shooters. Buol says these informational articles and videos should benefit all Garand shooters: “Some are appropriate for pure beginners, while some a bit more advanced. None are very advanced.” The links were compiled with the help of John Tate.

Rifle Marksmanship with the M1 Garand Rifle

The film was made in 1942/43 for the War Department. It shows shooting positions and holding techniques for the M1 Garand. This informative video will help both novice Garand shooters as well as experts seeking a “refresher course”. The film focuses on the M1 Garand but the techniques can be applied to any rifle. The narration sounds a bit “corny” by today’s standards, but focus on the techniques shown and you’ll learn plenty.

Recommended M1 Garand Manual
Among the many M1 Garand manuals available, we recommend the CMP’s U.S. Rifle, Caliber .30, M1: ‘Read This First’ Manual. This booklet covers take-down, reassembly, cleaning, lubrication, and operation. The manual is included with CMP rifles and is also available for just $3.00 from the CMP eStore. The author of Garand Tips & Tricks says: “It’s one of the best firearms manuals I’ve seen and I highly recommend it.”
