Soldier Holding an M1 Garand MemorablePlaces Proudly Presents: The M1-Garand Rifle
An American Companion in Three Wars
Nomenclature (Part Names) For
The M1 Garand Rifle

It sure makes it easier to talk about something when everyone is on the same page as far as the name of any given item.

This page used to link the name of each part of the M1 Garand to a page devoted to that part. On that page you could have found a photograph of the part and a description of it along with any other special notes that are available.

This section of The M1Garand An American Companion In Three Wars Website has been removed!
(But that is a GOOD THING!)

MemorablePlaces is very proud to announce that the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) has recently acquired this section of our CMPwebsite. designs and builds websites including this very site which was our offering to the M1 Garand Community. In 2002 the CMP expressed interest in acquiring about 100 pages worth of this site which included the Nomenclature section and the Accessories section.

In late March of 2002 we completed the job of repackaging those areas of the M1 Garand, An American Companion In Three Wars website and we transferred them to the CMP where they are now a permanent part of the CMP website. Terms of the deal are not being disclosed.

Please click here for a direct link to the Nomenclature Section of the CMP website. If this link does not work in the future please select either this link or this link. Failing that of course you can look on the CMP main page.
