M1 Garand/Quiz/Hard

  1. Hi all,
    Another quiz on the M1 Garand.
    What were the two (2) different things about the US M1E8?
    Have fun with this one.
    Thanks again
  2. The M1E8 used a telescopic site designed by Springfield and a Lyman scope. It was later standardized as the M1D (Sniper's) Substitute Standard in 1944. Am I close????

  3. Don,
    Well you nailed this one. The part about the cheek piece was that it was adjustable and flush with the stock. So that you could use the iron sites. The photo shows no lacing of any kind. The testing was done at APG. Dated 7/31/44. Great work. I will have to find some really hard ones.
    Thanks again
