The first standard issue semi-automatic rifle issued to the US Armed Forces, the M1 Garand was referred to as "the greatest battle implement ever devised" by General George S. Patton. Replacing the venerable Springfield M1903 in 1936, the M1 Garand quickly displayed its huge advantage on the battlefield. During World War II, the M1 Garand saw extensive use and gave US forces a major advantage in firefights against Axis soldiers who were usually issued slower bolt-action rifles. The M1 Garand remained in service throughout the Korean War and even had limited deployment in the early years of the Vietnam War. The rifle still continues to be used even in the modern day by drill teams and military honor guards as well as in the civilian market long after it was retired from active service.
A&K has faithfully reproduced the venerable M1 Garand in an AEG that everyone can afford. Striving to offer the most realism and reliability for your dollar, the A&K M1 Garand features a stained wood stock and a metal alloy receiver and barrel assembly giving this M1 a realistic look and feel that will have you believing you are pushing through the hedgerows in the south of France. Internally the A&K M1Garand is powered by a version 7 gearbox allowing a level of customization and upgradeability not found in other M1 AEG replicas on the market. While all the major features of a good M1 Garand replica are there, A&K did not skimp on the details including a period correct safety, bayonet lug, sling rings stacking swivel and an authentic sight picture. Whether you are a WWII re-enactor or an Airsofter looking to field a unique rifle, the A&K M1 Garand delivers on looks, performance, realism and usability that puts it at the front of the pack.

"It's a beautiful gun. I'm very satisfied with the look and the size of it.
"I am kind of an M1 Garand enthusiast as I have owned the Marushin gas blow back, a 2ndBat M14 conversion and an ICS AEG. I have not owned a GnG Garand although I have handled and fired them. The A & K is about 100 less and offers spare magazines that are far less expensive to buy. Appearance wise the GnG is the most correct. Had there been reasonable priced and available clips I probably would purchase it as well. One complaint on the GnG is how awkwardly it reloads. Since all 3 of the AEG Garands have right around 30 round clips, fast reloads is a skirmishing consideration. The ICs is somewhat off in shape ( a bit more bulbous through the stock and with significantly oversized sling hardware. The A & K conversely is a bit too thin through the stock and as mentioned overly rounded through the stock neck grip area. (No doubt to facilitate the AEG motor). The A & K and ICS shoot .20 gram BBs at around 420 fps so pleanty of power. The A &K has a selector switch for full auto (weird for a Garand which was semi auto only. The wood is a bit nicer on the ICS. The 2ndBat is a conversion that combines a CYMA M14 and real Garand furniture and gas assembly. The ICS gas assembly is stubbier and thicker than a real Garand hence a bayonet won't fit as it does on the other 3 replicas. The magazines with the A &K feed (both loading and unloading) seamlessly which makes it the best skirmisher. The wiring in the A & K seems a bit flimsy compared to the other 3 so care what I'll be taken when changing batteries.
There are upsides to each of these replicas which are all unique designs. I have been thrilled with all of them. The price point for the A & K gives it something of an edge (especially with the 10.00 spare clips although the G n G comes with two clips.
I will do what I can to cosmetically improve the stock shape on the A & K and refinish the stain. Assuming it proves as robust as the ICS which I have easily put 10,000 rounds through it will become my favorite. One curious aspect of the A & K is it came with no owners manual. Since I now have a Thompson a Grease gun, a S & T Springer M1903 Springfield, a BAR and a nice group of German WW2 guns all I need now is a well done M1 carbine AEG. The hokey WELL carbine being too weak a shooter and too far off in appearance to be acceptable.
So thrilled to see WW2 rifles and sub machine guns being replicated.
"I am very pleased with the A&K Garand! It probably won't see much use in airsoft matches, but it performed well in the limited shooting tests I did with it when it arrived yesterday.
The aesthetics of this rifle are great! There are a couple of relatively minor deviations from an authentic Garand (e.g., the magazine baseplate is not flush with the the stock and the grip is more contoured/defined than it is on a real Garand), but neither take much away from the rifle's overall appearance.
Other points to note regarding the rifle's "authenticity": I really appreciate that the safety works like it does on a real Garand; that the rear sight elevation/windage adjustments look and function like they should; that what would be the bolt release on a real rifle is used as the magazine release on the airsoft version; and that the compartment in the buttstock where the cleaning kit would go on a real rifle is used as the battery compartment.
The wood stock looks really nice. I'm sure it will get dinged up pretty quick (which tends to happen to the wood furniture on most inexpensive airsoft guns), but that's to be expected and gives the gun character.
The only thing that really sticks out and takes away from the gun's authenticity is that the operating rod can only be pulled back far enough to access the hop-up unit (about one-third of the distance it would travel on a real Garand) and does not lock back. This is my only real criticism of the rifle, but I knew about it before I made the purchase, and it's not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things. It would be pretty awesome if the op rod traveled its full distance and the bolt locked open, though.
Overall, I think this is a great buy, especially considering how much it costs. There are other airsoft Garands out there that are better quality and more authentic, but $300 is more than fair for what you get with this rifle.
