USGI M1 Garand Bandolier

Availability: Out of stock

- SKU: M1GB

The M1 Garand, during the time of its reign as the standard-issue service rifle for the United States Armed Forces, was a pretty big deal. In fact, the M1 Garand was the first semi-automatic rifle to enjoy widespread issuance to any infantry in the world. Oh, and General George S. Patton called it "the greatest battle implement ever devised." That lends it some credence, right? But no matter how great the M1 Garand was – and is – the rifle still had its fair share of naysayers.

Its biggest source of criticism stemmed from its dated feeding system, which required the use of an eight-round en-bloc clip. And though the en-bloc clip was once predicted to be the downfall of the rifle, it turned out to be no such thing. In fact, their cheap manufacturing costs and impressive reliability made them quite innovative. What better way is there to celebrate the legacy of the M1 Garand en-bloc clip than by carrying six of them in your new USGI M1 Garand bandolier?

The USGI M1 Garand bandolier is designed to carry six en-bloc clips, bringing your grand total of available ammunition to a modest 48 rounds. These original bandoliers are unused and in excellent condition.

The USGI M1 Garand bandolier is now available for just $7.95.

As noted, each USGI M1 Garand bandolier offered by Keepshooting.com is an authentic United States Military surplus item. These original government-manufacture bandoliers were originally designed for and used by service men in the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force while the M1 Garand served as the standard-issue service rifle from 1936 to 1957.

Each USGI M1 Garand bandolier is an unissued piece of military surplus. As such, they remain unused and in excellent condition, ready to begin their service lives. Each is free from the typical rips, tears, stains and scents that are characteristic of previously issued military surplus.

The USGI M1 Garand bandolier measures approximately 22 1/2 inches long and 4 3/4 inches wide and is constructed entirely from a lightweight, olive drab cotton material. The bandolier features six separate pouches, each of which measures approximately 3 3/4 inches by 4 3/4 inches and is designed to carry one en-bloc clip each. This provides for a total of 48 rounds. Additionally, each pouch contains a cardboard insert designed to accept the en-bloc clip so that is may be safely stored inside the bandolier.

Each bandolier may also feature USGI markings. The bandolier pictured is marked with "CAL. 30 BALL M2, 8 RD CLIPS, LC 39454" though the markings on the bandolier you receive may vary.
