    Here's my Springfield Armory M1 Garand...manufactured in November 1944. She is pictured with an original M1942 16" bayonet ( very rare...most were cut down to 10" ) and a repo M7 fragmentation grenade launcher.

    The M1 Garand (officially designated as United States Rifle, Caliber .30, M1), was the first semi automatic to be generally issued to the infantry of any nation. Called "the greatest battle implement ever devised" by General George S. Patton, the Garand officially replaced the bolt action M1903 Springfield as the standard service rifle of the United States Armed Forces in 1936 and was subsequently replaced by the selective fire M14 in 1957.

    Eight rounds of .22 Long rifle...weighs in at 2.5 lbs

    The famous Henry Survival Rifle, the latest incarnation of what was originally the U.S. Air Force AR-7 survival rifle. Originally, it was designed and manufactured by Eugene Stoner and The Armalite Corporation, then bought by Charter arms in 1973, so it has been known as the Armalite AR-7, the Charter Arms AR-7, or the AR-7 Explorer.

    The Henry U.S. Survival rifle as it is now called, is currently manufactured by Henry Repeating arms in New York. It is an ultra-compact, ultra lightweight rifle that quickly dissassembles into 3 parts, and fits inside its own buttstock. The gun comes finished in camo, black, and silver. The buttstock will also accommodate two 8 round clips. No special tools are required to break down or assemble the weapon. Durability has been maximized by coating the internal parts, as well as the ABS covered steel barrel, with Teflon. The buttstock made from black polymer is marketed as waterproof and impervious to weather.

    James Bond used it in "From Russia With Love" to kill a bad guy in a helicopter who was dropping grenades on him. He shoots the guy who fumbles the grenade in the cockpit and blows up the threat.

    Yep, the M6 Scout is an almost exact copy of the Air Force M6 survival rifle, issued from the 50's to the 70's.

    The commercial model is nearly identical to the USAF version, though there are a couple of minor cosmetic differences. There is a removable trigger guard. The greatest change is that the commercial model has a barrel length of 18.25 inches (46.4 cm) instead of the 14 inches (36 cm) barrel length of the USAF version.

    I do like that 410 squirrel and rabbit thumper and with the Winchester PDX1 with three plated Defense Disc projectiles and 12 pellets of plated BB shot, a good short range defense weapon .
