It has the most accurate iron sights of all the weapons in NZ:P (The others shoot high, and usually to the left this one is dead on, at the top of the front sight.)
The M1 Garand can only be snagged in the 1.2 Alpha via Impulse 9. It is not in the box.
The M1 Garand in the 1.2 Alpha has a different reload than the other games.
