Gentlemen,
This post is for some of the new guys. The Topic speaks for itself. These are for taking a 5 rd stripper clip and then loading it into a M1 Garand Clip. Mr. John C. Garand had put in for a Patent Office on Aug. 3, 1942. If you wish email me and I can post more.
I hope you find these data of interest.

Without input from you guys no one learns anything Try to put in some info/question and we can learn more of the M1's History

A word to the WISE for CONGRESS:
"You cannot invade America. There is a rifle behind every blade of grass." Admiral Yamamoto

A Veteran, whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve, is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount of “up to and including my life.”

Thanks again for taking the time and effort to read this data. I hope you have learned a little of the history of the M1 Garand.

Was this for loading clips before packaging them for shippment?I'd imagine it was for use at the unit level. I'd think a large amount of the 30-06 the military had stocked before WWII was already loaded on five round clips for the 1903 rifle.
