Development of the Service Rifle


John C. Garand himself discussing the history of American service rifles, originally aired on the US Army syndicated TV program "The Big Picture". Of particular note is the rack of rifles to Garand's right - they are the various early prototype version of his rifle. Unfortunately, he doesn't discuss them at all (perhaps more of this lecture still exists on video somewhere?). Also, xenophobes beware: he has a surprisingly thick French-Canadian accent. garand-on-us-weapons-development-video/
