The M1 Garand, surnamed "the greatest battle implement ever devised," was created in 1936 by John Cantius Garand and was the first semi-automatic rifle to be generally issued into the U.S. Army. It is a .30-06 gas-operated, semi-automatic, 8 shot clip-fed rifle. It provides good accuracy up to 100 yards and begins to decline sharply from 330 yards. It has a respectable rate of fire and is also easy to disassemble and clean.
The M1 Garand has an aiming bonus when used at long ranges. This, however, comes with a close range aiming penalty which is bigger than the standard penalty of other ranged weapons. This limits the Garand to being most effective as a long range sniping weapon.
