Firearms Expert Breaks Down The M1 Garand – Loadout Extended Chat

The M1 Garand has made a huge impact in the real world, and in the world of our pop culture, movies and games, and is famous for making a ringing PING sound when fired until empty. But where does this sound come from, and how does it factor into the M1 Garand’s revolutionary design? 

In this episode of Loadout, Dave Jewitt visits the Royal Armouries to talk to Keeper of Firearms & Artillery Jonathan Ferguson about the mechanical and design idiosyncrasies of one of WW2’s most iconic weapons, the M1 Garand.
