    Hi all,
    This should be an easy one. How many and when did Winchester deliver M1 Garand Rifles for the Endurance Tests?
    Have fun
    Thanks again

    Hmm, wild guess:

    The first 100 rifles by WRA were delivered on September 20, 1939.

    It was snowing, so they hired a Sleigh and some reindeer to deliver them. The Sleigh was tested in J.C. Garand's skating rink. His wife would not allow the reindeer to come in.

    Kevlarman,
    Sorry the first 100 M1 Garands from Winchester were shipped in late Dec. 27th 1940. Good try.
    Thanks again
