Gentlemen,


In Oct 1937 Winchester wrote a letter to Ordnance about the M1 Garand Rifle. It seems that Winchester wanted data from Ordnance about the operation of this rifle. Winchester also wanted one for testing at Winchester.
What was the reason for this request ? What was the reply from Ordnance about this request?
Remember I need two answers for these question
