U.S. M1 Garand Rifle Production

Below is a list of serial numbers for the M1 Garand noting the year and month it was produced. The serial number listed is the last one produced in the month; all given serial numbers are approximate. Serial numbers are credited to Scott A. Duff, The M1 Garand: World War II.

Note whether the arm was produced by
Springfield Armory or Winchester Repeating Arms Company before looking at serial numbers. Other companies including Rock Island Arsenal, International Harvester, and Harrington and Richardson also produced M1s but we do not have the breakdown for these firearms.
