    Hi all,
    What other company besides Winchester was Ordnance looking at to build the M1 Garand during WW2?
    No it was not Remington.
    Have fun
    Thanks again

    I believe a number of them were made by International Harvester.

    Probably H&R, they came on board during the '50's and IIRC helped IHC with their production.

    AFAIK, it was Springfield, International Harvester, Harrington and Richardson, and Winchester who built Garands during Double-ya Double-ya Two. Marlin made some barrels but I think they were after the war. Was there somebody else?

    Hi guys,
    You are correct that IHC and H&R made M1 Garands, but not during WW2 only SA and Winchester made them. There was another company that Ordnance was looking at to make them during WW2 and it was not Remington.
    Keep trying
    Thanks again

    Second vote for Smith Corona. Wasn't there a serial number gap for them? Or at least their educational order?

    Hi guys,
    Standard Products Co. at no less a place then Port Clinton, Oh. was the company in the running. Ordnance however, dropped the idea of another company. The reason was that SA and Win had rebuilt their lines to higher production and this is why Standard lost out.
    I hope you had fun
    Have a Happy New Year to you and yours
    Thanks again
