I think what Williams used was an M1 Garand. The picture I saw if it laying on the street looked to be a Garand to me. I also think a Garand was used to shoot several soldiers at Ft. Bragg one morning when they were getting ready for the morning run.

Yep, I should have specified that when I replied.

Fort Bragg- It was an AR-15.

The guy that was with Patty Hearst used an M2 carbine if I remember correctly. Supposedly he let loose a lot of lead with it from a basement window. I think it was cut down. It looks like this link shows a picture of it.

Here's the latest on the Korean Garands.

Century International Arms
236 Bryce Boulevard
Fairfax, Vermont 05454

5 June 2014

For Immediate Release

Century International Arms Recent Vermont Employee Layoffs Due to Import Denial

Century is one of the country’s largest importers of highly-collectible, historical firearms. It is also one of the largest employers in Franklin County, providing its employees and numerous vendors with high-quality manufacturing jobs.

Century had been planning on a large importation of vintage WWII, M1 Garand Rifles from the South Korean government. All the normal approvals were in place to obtain the import permits for this sale from ATF. Century had invested considerable funds in seeking the approvals and financing for this transaction. It was expected that this nearly 30 million dollar transaction would have provided a reliable revenue stream to Century even during the general downturn in firearms demand in 2014. Additionally, the sales proceeds were going to be used by the South Korean government to purchase modern firearms for their defense forces.

Unfortunately and unexpectedly, The White House intervened at the last minute and blocked this importation. This importation was denied despite our explaining that the denial would harm the company and pointing out that there is no rational, gun-control reason to block the importation of these historic, 70-year-old firearms.

As a consequence of this denial, there has been a reduction in work and Century has had to make the difficult decision to layoff 41 Vermont employees. Nevertheless, Century has modernized production in several key operations areas, developed new products, and intensified our sales efforts in various markets. We fully expect that the industry-wide downturn in demand from government, law enforcement and consumer customers will rebound in the coming months. When that rebound happens, Century will be well poised to take advantage of these future growth opportunities and expand our workforce.

Century is grateful for the support it has received so far from Senator Leahy and Governor Shumlin. And Century is still hopeful that the White House will reconsider its decision on the Korea sale and allow this important transaction to proceed, which would have a direct, positive impact on Century’s employees, Vermonters, and America’s gun collecting community.
