First Happy Bird Day
Point of interest I think.
A Ordnance report dated March 2, 1937 shows the following:
Model 1903 901,548 of which 306,514 are in the hands of troops
Model 1917 2,174,855 of which only a small amount are in the hands of troops.
I wonder why so many 1917's as to Model 1903's ?
Just seems odd to me.
My sites with data and books and CD for sale. These are commercial sites. They also have Ordnance Data files posted there. http://www.users.fast.net/~eclancy http://www.garandm1rifle.com
