Gentlemen,

...the guy with the M1 Garand with the old Gas Trap. Notice color between that and the Model 1903.

I wonder how it would look on a moonlit night ?

Hmmmmm

The guy on the right has the M1? ? ? ? ? :D :D

I sort of very vaguely remember my late Dad telling me something about using paint/shoe polish on the shiny parts, some guys tried the candle flame carbon black method.

Clancy,

How do you tell its a gas trap model? Isn't the difference exclusively at the barrel end?

Thanks,

John

Well, seeing as how the guy on the left is using a bolt-action, I'm guessing that the M1 must be with the guy on the right! :neener:

johnmcl,
You can tell by the front end setup. But I cheat the photo is from my book showing the M1 against the Model 1903. You should really get the CD with the 1940 film footage. It shows receivers being made and other parts as well as testing in the field.
Thanks again guys
Clancy
