The M1 Garand was the first semi-automatic rifle to be generally issued to the U.S. Army. When its integral eight-round box magazine is emptied and the clip is ejected, a "ping" sound can be heard. Due to its features and distinguished service, it was called "The Greatest Battle Implement Ever Devised" by General George S. Patton. It was phased out of U.S. military service after the adoption of the M14 rifle in 1957, though it is still used for ceremonial purposes.
Surplus and post-war copies are found in North America and in some of the armories of the country's allies.
