if my uncle was alive today he would tell you that in the battle for the phillpines no one carried a springfield 03 or 03A3 in his squad or platoon in front line combat and often said the m-1 saved his life and those of his friends. my thoughts after remembering what he said about the battle for the phillipnes was if he had to carry a 03-03A3 he would not have been alive to shoot 15000-17000 rounds. he said his squad shot 15-20 japanese soldiers that tried to rush them several times in the streets of manila, he came home they didn,t. i own both rifles and i would take the m-1 garand every time over the 03,s. but thats just me. eastbank.
