FG42 vs M1 Garand: 2-Gun Action Match

Cool Forgotten Weapons Merch!

For this month’s 2-Gun Action Challenge Match, we had a loaner .308 FG-42 from SMG Guns, which I handed off to my friend Karl to shoot. I went up against him with an M1 Garand, to see if e could get an idea of how these two rifles would have fared against each other in WWII. The match had a good mix of situations, from 200-yard targets down to 1-yard targets, and it tested a wide array of shooting skills. For handguns, Karl an I stuck to the WWII theme – he used a Walther P38 and I used my Ballester Molina (for all practical purposes, a 1911A1).
