Uncle_Sam;3749839Thats what I was gonna say. That's how I've always done it reloading my buddies garand. Obviously I'm not getting shot at and I'm not military trained so I'm not a click click boom relaoder. But I know for a fact you can do it like m1 says. The guys using the garands were BAMFs at what they did and it was nothing to reload it "combat-style". But theres that "garand thumb" thing where if you let the bolt out before taking your thumb out. And yea, that swells reallll nice. Now just casually shooting you have no real reason to load it fast like that, so longer then 4 seconds would be just fine in that situation. I have to disagree on the K98 tho, when you run out and the bolt locks back in the back position its nothing for me to slide the stripper clip in and slam the bolt back shut. I can do it faster then the garand, but I actually own/use the k98 a lot more...
I think your getting the 98 mixed up here. Its bolt action. After you fire your last round, you manually retract the bolt, ejecting the fired casing. Stripper clips foul up easily, you need to carefully align the stripper into the slot, then push STRAIGHT and HARD on the top and rear of the top round. IF all goes smoothly, then you can jam the bolt forward, and hopefully the clip will pop out without much difficulty. This takes me more time than just ramming a clip into the M1, with the bolt already opened for you, and wanting to close for you after inserting fresh enbloc. ( I also own a 98...) And yea, I'm a click click boom BAMF at that, USMC pals trained me, and I'm a future Marine. Semper Fidelis.
I JUST UPLOADED A VIDEO OF ME LOADING THE M1 AND FIRING IT TO YOUTUBE. WILL POST LINK WHEN IT BECOMES AVAILABLE.
me firing the M1, watch me load it...

I'm pretty sure im not getting it mixed up. It's all what you have more practice at. Although you are correct on the stripper clips fouling at times. But for the record I don't think they'll be coding any fouling of clips or garand thumbs. So its a moot point.
oh and you like that video, takes me 2 seconds flat to load, and shoulder the weapon. =D add another one or two second if you were to actually have to get a fresh clip handy. to me this is faster than the mauser, clip inserts easier, and once it is in, let go! In that video the bolt ran forward by itself, i was trying to hit it with my hand but it beat me to it.. hand action is fake =D lol
loved it makes me want to get one even more hey btw i am a left handed person and reloading a m1 would be impossable but some may think this is dump but what if you could make an option to switch from left to right and in my head when i think back to how you reload all the guns even my 10/22 i keep thinking that it is a left handed gun btw 10/22 great gun horable bill hope they shoot it down if they dont ALL semi-autos would be BANNED from the 10/22 to the m1 want to shoot still join the NRA today
