These days, when products are manufactured in the United States, the companies responsible for the production of said products like to make sure that they highlight that little tidbit of information in order to let consumers know that it provides the high quality and craftsmanship expected of American-made goods. In the past, it was never such a big deal – unless, of course, we are talking military service rifles.
The M1 Garand is an American icon, even though it was developed by a Canadian-American. Designed in the early 20th century by John Garand, the M1 was the first standard issue service rifle to boast semi-automatic fire. But did you know that the official designation of the M1 Garand is the United States Rifle, Caliber .30, M1? The Military had to let everyone know that the M1 Garand was an American rifle.
Similarly, we here at Keepshooting.com want everyone to know that our new M1 Garand sling was made right here in America. Would the M1 Garand accept anything less? Probably not. So if you have an M1 Garand and you are looking for a sling, look no further than Keepshooting.com's new American-made M1 Garand sling.
The M1 Garand sling is now available for $19.95.
Spare parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly. In general, if a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement becomes necessary immediately. Though a sling holds no bearing on the functionality of a firearm, it aids in building a firearm that is not only complete, but correct – a consideration that, for some, is almost equally as important as spare parts.
It is also important to consider availability. At this time, Keepshooting.com is seeking to provide our customers with a wide selection of replacement parts and accessories for the iconic M1 Garand. Several parts and accessories are now readily available on our website at an affordable price, including the M1 Garand gas plug wrench, which is paramount for access to the gas cylinder. If you have any need for spare parts and accessories, now would be a good time to take advantage of this offering.
All M1 Garand slings offered by Keepshooting.com are reproductions of the original olive drab canvas sling issued alongside Korean War-era M1 Garands. These slings are khaki in color. As such, they are all in brand new condition, which means they are free of any wear and tear. And even though the appeal of an original sling, outside of being correct, is its historical curiosity, the condition of our M1 Garand slings makes them much more suitable for both display and actual use.
The M1 Garand sling measures approximately 1 1/4 inch wide and is adjustable to 45 inches in total length. The sling, which is presented in an olive drab coloring, is constructed from a durable canvas material. As noted, all features of the original are present and accounted for, including the necessary metal fittings needed for mounting, which have been fully heat treated and finished with black oxide coatings.
