Hey, we've probably all heard that General Patton described the M1 Garand as the best Battle Rifle/Weapon ever designed, but how does that hold up today? Myself, I just picked up a nice SA M1, and I am thrilled to put this rifle to use again! I would think that the "Best Battle Rifle" title would be better appionted to something more advanced, in todays terms. What would you say? I love the M1 Garand, and it was right for it's time, but would vote for the M-14 due to it's simularities & common design. I'm probably stirring some old coals here, but it's still fun to discuss.
