1903 springfield vs M1
I owned a nice Garand once, issue class too, not a re man/import or pieced together from old parts. It would shoot 5" groups all day everyday and was fun up to a point(s), those being chasing the en block clips, recharging them was a pain, not to mention the guts of the rifle that forced the rounds up looked like it wanted to fly out of the rifle when it ejected the en block clip. And I'd go so far as saying if you never had your thumb busted at least once you have not shot one..very much! But Patton sure thought highly of it as I suppose did many a WWII GI/Marine.
