Here are some
typical American WWII weapons on display at the Fort Snelling Military
Expo in May 2007: an number of M1 Garand rifles, two .30 machine
guns, two Broawning Automatic Rifles, and a few styles of rifle
grenades fired from Garands.
The first photo
shows a lone .30 M1 carbine. To the left of the Garands in the second
photo is an M1 Thompson submachine gun. The next photo shows the
large box which delivered .30 ammo clips to the front lines. Then
we get a couple nice shots of the .30 machine gun.
In the sixth
photo, the rifle closest to the edge of the blanket is a bolt-action
M-1903 Springfield .030-06, typically used as a sniper rifle.
The tenth photo
shows two types of launchers for the MkII fragmentation grenade.
The longer grenade is an M9 A1 antitank round. Next to the BAR bipod
leg is what appears to be an M21A1 amber star signal flare. Another
BAR and .30 machine gun were on display next to a refurbished M5A1
The final two
photos show a paratrooper armed with the M-1911 Colt .45 and M3
trench knife tucked into the jump boot.
