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 m and begins to decline sharply from 300 m. It has a respectable rate of fire and is also easy to disassemble and clean.
This weapon along with 3 other weapons(Laser rifle, Gauss rifle, Hunting rifle) has an aiming bonus when used on long ranges. Sniper rifle gets a similar but an even bigger long range aiming bonus. These bonuses come with an close range aiming penalty which is bigger than the standard penalty other ranged weapons have. This means that if one wants a weapon for long range sniping, than one of the mentioned 5 weapons should be used.
