If anybody knows better or more, I would be happy to be corrected. I have 2 each made-from-scratch new short handguards and stocks but never ( personaly ) seen a purpose built Tipo 2 op rod or barrel.

Water Spray Test: The water spray test is an accelerated test to determine the effect of a heavy rainfall on the performance of the weapon.

On my search for an IHC M1 Garand I found these and was wondering how common they are? So now I'm thinking there are actually two more M1 Garands I need / want! I've seen a few, so they have been re-exported to the US, but not in the numbers of other Garands. It has a Barretta conversion block and different barrel so it shoots 7.62x51 (.308). Typically , that means that the barrel , stock ,rear handguard , and operating rod are about a half inch shorter than the standard 30'06 parts.

A few pictures I Found, --- --- I'm not a Garand guy, but I know that the Beretta Garands were made in large quantities (so they aren't rare in absolute terms, but maybe relatively uncommon in the US) and were used by the Italians as well as exported to other NATO countries like Holland and Denmark, and perhaps others. Looks like a Tipo 2 conversion put together on a nice reciever by Springfield Inc.

The Marlin M1 barrels are certainly not known for best accuracy.....

“We hope to see them in the future.” The CMP is a federally chartered non-profit corporation tasked with promoting firearms safety training and rifle practice. Army under the Clinton-administration in 1996, it still conducts training courses and holds shooting competitions nationwide but draws its primary source of funding through the sale of surplus firearms to qualifying members of the public which were donated to the organization by the Army.
