M1 Garand Nomenclature

It sure makes it easier to talk about something when everyone is on the same page as far as the name of any given item.

This page links the name of each part of the M1 Garand to a page devoted to that part. On that page you will find a photograph of the part and a description of it along with any other special notes that are available.

Special Note: When photographing the M1 Garand parts, we placed other items of significant historical interest with them when we could. This was done partly to add a relative item size reference and partly to make the nomenclature pages more entertaining and maybe even historically interesting. We have also written a short description of the items appearing with the M1 parts for your enjoyment.

To use these pages, simply click the part name below and you will be sent to a webpage devoted to that part or sub-assembly.
