The M1 is an air-cooled, gas-operated, clip-fed, semi-automatic, shoulder-fired weapon. This means that the air cools the barrel, that the power to cock the rifle and chamber the succeeding round comes from the expanding gas of the round fired previously, that it is loaded by inserting an en-bloc metal clip into the receiver, and that the rifle fires one round each time the trigger is pulled. After the eight rounds have been shot, the empty clip automatically ejects with an audible "ping" noise. Garand had gas-operated action, 8-round en-block clip magazine for .30-06 Springfield ammo (bullet diameter 7.8 mm). Used by snipers at long distances (great aiming) but very effective on middle distance cause its fast ? it is a semi-automatic weapon. Often equipped with scope and bayonet. The muzzle velocity is 853 m/s.
