Finally going to check a book I’ve been wanting to read for a long long time off the reading list soon. “Parachute Infantry” by David Kenyon Webster was a book written by a man who served in the famed “Band of Brothers” during WWII. His book was heavily referenced during the making of the HBO miniseries. Also included is an M1 Garand, ammo, spent 30-06 casings, 101st Airborne patch, MkII fragmentation grenade w/ M1A2 grenade launching adapter, and converted M1 bayonet.

No. The overwhelming majority of M1 Garands are chambered in .30-06. Only the Navy used Garands chambered in 7.62 NATO (rechambered in the early 1960’s from 30-06 to conform to the new standardized NATO round), and even then only in somewhat limited quantities before being fully replaced by the M14.

Winchester Model 1911 Self Loading Shotgun. It was a recoil operated gun, so the barrel of this shotgun itself recoils back after a shell is fired, cycling the action. Note the serrations on the barrel midway between the magazine tube and muzzle. That is where you grab to pull the barrel back to chamber a shell.
