Original U.S. WWII Modified M1 Garand Rifle Leather Jeep Scabbard With Securing Straps by Nickel & Sons - Dated 1942

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is good, service used condition M1 Garand rigid leather scabbard by Nickel and Sons, which is dated 1942. We have seen a few of these before, but never a modified one. The stitching is complete, all rivets present, and the original cocking lever guard is no longer present. The guard was removed and a piece of leather was, extending the length of the scabbard. This alteration was more than likely done by the veteran for use as a hunting rifle scabbard to be used while on horseback. Both securing straps present, complete with buckles and functional snap hooks. The leather itself is nice, with a beautiful aged dark russet brown color. The leather is dried out in locations and there is some degradation present. The markings are unfortunately very hard to read due to the leather addition.

These scabbards were used to attach to Jeeps, motorcycles, horses and other transportation equipment. This kept the rifle at the ready, while also keeping it well secured and protected. This fine example is partially marked:

M1 Garand
The M1 Garand or M1 Rifle is a semi-automatic rifle that was the United States' service rifle during World War II and the Korean War.

The rifle is chambered for the .30-06 Springfield cartridge and is named after its Canadian-American designer, John Garand. It was the first standard-issue autoloading rifle for the United States. By most accounts, the M1 rifle performed well. General George S. Patton called it "the greatest battle implement ever devised". The M1 replaced the bolt-action M1903 Springfield as the U.S.' service rifle in 1936, and was itself replaced by the selective-fire M14 rifle on March 26, 1958.
