M1 garand with scope - M1C or M1D
« on: 11-07-2010, 16:07:52 »
Was nibbling through the Garand history and I though 2 myself : "Why don't Garands have scopes? They must have thought about it back then" - so I searched about it and found those 2 babies. Plus Paavopusieni mentioned them in a post.

I just have 1 question : Possible (rare pickup kit, maybe instead of a M1903 Springfield in some places)
                                Not Possible  ??

There were scoped garands littered to couple of places back in FH. Maybe they'll make their appearance in FH2 too in later on.

The M1C garand was introduced late in 1944 but didn't really appear until 1945 (and then only in limited numbers)

Well I WAS shooting for the M1D. it's got a nicer scope and is basically an M1 with a scope on top, no difference with the origigi rifle.

In a 1945 map, maybe as a rare pickup kit. It was more widely issued in Korean war.
I'd rather play Kimble with my ass!

Thats why Hslan should allow baseraping as infantry ;D. Thats why I still play vanilla sometimes. Its so awesome to take M95 and go to US carrier and start sniping people from choppers and planes. You get kicked from almost every server though :'(.

I just realized that the germans have 5 (5!!!) scoped versions of guns. K98 ZF, ZF41, Stg44 ZF, G43 ZF and FG42 ZF.
But Americans have only the Springfield Sniper, and British have only Pattern 14 and Lee Enfield No4 sniper.
I want the Garand scoped and I want it now!

Please.  ;D
