Wikipedia is good but one that really goes in depth is Hatcher's Book of the Garand. The 276 was almost adopted. But Gen MacArthur office scotched it. It matters little at this point in time but Winchester's entry in the Marine rifle test did pretty well for a shop built one of a kind and if the it's bolt hadn't failed we may have had two m1's with the same gas system.
