About the rifles
After WWII ended and NATO was founded, America disseminated a lot of its M1 Garand rifles to various countries around the world for military aid. In 1952, the M1 design was sold to Italy, who was designated the official NATO supplier for the M1 Garand, and the manufacturing was split between two firms, Beretta and Breda. Utilizing machinery purchased from Winchester, both companies manufactured rifles for NATO forces. A majority of these rifles were sold under an arms contract to Denmark (mostly Pietro Beretta made), while BMR (Breda Meccanica Romana Italia) produced the rest for the Italian military. Between the 1950s'-60s' these rifles went through a re-barreling process, converting them to 7.62X51 and served as a transitional rifle before the BM-59 was created. This particular SKU is for the Sniper variant, which includes the M84 Sniper scope and ships in the original crate. This adds phenomenal value to an already incredibly collectible rifle.
A Piece of History
From looking at these rifles, most show minimal signs of heavy use and will meet NRA Surplus Very Good Condition. Although used by the Italian military, the Breda M1 was more of an inter-period rifle before the Italians converted to the BM-59. While the U.S. M1 Garand rifles are not incredibly rare, (considering more than 5-million were manufactured) numbers estimate only a total of 300,000 Italian M1s were produced not only making them more unique but a significant piece of the history of the firearm and the absolute "Pièce de Résistance" to any serious M1 Garand Collector. These being the Sniper variant, these were even less common, making them that more valuable. Do not miss this opportunity to own a beautiful piece of history!
