The Winchester M1 Garand ‘SAW’
From the Cody Firearms Museum: This M1 was modified from standard configuration by Winchester by adding a box magazine, flash hider, bipod, pistol grip, and making the gun select fire. They also made a serious effort to keep the weight down and while we don’t have the exact figure, it doesn’t feel much heavier than a standard M1. Winchester modified several M1s during WW2, but we aren’t sure if this gun was part of that or a later development program for the M14.
