Selective Fire magazine fed M-1 Garand

Pretty innovative by Winchester.

Is called an M-14. Mind you, the innovative types during W.W. II were reputed to have made a regular M1 Rifle FA.
JC's first design had a 20 round box mag. Ordnance Board and the Army didn't want it.
Spelling and grammar count!

Springfield and Remington developed box magazine full auto Garands, too, T20 and T22 series. The Winchester seems to have been an in house project, not type classified. (T21 was a tank.)
All in anticipation of the invasion of the Japanese home islands, along with the T26 "Tanker."

You can find mention (and a couple pictures) of some of the prototype rifles that developed into the M14 in Small Arms of the World (Smith&Smith)

Good to see a couple of them made it to the Cody Museum.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.

Thus a man should endeavor to reach this high place of courage with all his heart, and, so trying, never be backward in war.
