Re: M1 Garand question
The Hakim is unique looking and operating and is a semi-auto that shoots 8mm Mauser. But it certainly is NOT my favorite semi-auto post WWII semi-auto military rifle. For me it does not compare all that favorably to my FN-FAL or my H&K 91 clone, the PTR-91. My CMP M1 Garand Special Grade is hard to beat out, as well. The Hakim is just unique and that is why I have it. But do stand clear of its ejection port!
