Semi-Automatic, Gas Operated, Air Cooled

Here is the step by step functioning of the M1 Garand. An ARMY training film from a nearly forgotten time.

 

Update: R.K. Brumbelow in the comments suggested a better quality copy of the same video. I replaced what I originally posted.

For some reason the click on link doesn't post. So if it isn't linked to Internet Archive.org
these flicks:

Am I the only one who finds the addition of the orange watermark to be both annoying and distracting? The video is free of copyright there should be no watermarks.
