The beast of American small arms options used by the General Infantry of the US Armed Forces in World War II, the M1 Garand is a weapon that has become an icon of American Military power during that period in history.
This machine was made for war and this Redwolf Custom really makes it look the part. The real wood stock has been hand worn and stained to a perfected weathered finish. The metal is no longer the black shiny incarnation of the Marushin base model but now a work strained gunmetal looking assembly of industrial machined combat.
This model utilizes a cycling bolt system that allows this weapon its semi-auto shooting. Using 8mm pellets it is also very representative of the powerful rifles of real steel and it even matches the real steels capacity of 8 BBs.
The cool factor of this replica does not stop there, oh no. Although it does not use shells, the weapon does put its 8 BBs inside a faux ''en blo'' clip which sits inside an internal magazine. The clip is loaded with 8 BBs much like a small magazine and then the whole ''clip'' is pushed into the receiver from the top such that the whole assembly goes into the internal magazine.
Firing off the shots is quick and nasty, the semi-auto action delivering high accuracy out of the long barrel. On its native HFC134a / Duster gas it will clock about 160 FPS with a 0.2g BB and will only just cycle with the lower pressure gas; although not built for TOP / Green / Propane gas, using the higher pressure source will crank things up to about 300 FPS with the 6mm pellets. Overall, this means that this 6mm version is far kinder to your targets even at short range as suppose to the big grunting 8mm versions cannon like power.
Although complicated to operate and load the complex mechanism (read the manual first before using!), users cannot really complain because it reflects the limitations of the real steel. Clips cannot be topped up while in use and when it becomes empty, the last shot launches the clip out flying automatically which can alert enemies to your empty weapon. Marushin took great pains to make this gun perform and behave exactly like the real gun.
Hanging over the mantle piece it looks like a grandfathered hand-me-down rifle and yet on the field it performs like an ass kicking great big nasty shooting 8mm semi-auto gas blowback combat rifle. This machine really earns it the name of Battle Rifle. We love it with a passion and hangs in our showroom room as well!
