The M1C was a semi-automatic sniper rifle that served in World War II. It was a modified version of the M1 Garand.

Overview

The M1C was developed at Springfield Armory for the use of Marines, Infantrymen, Snipers, and first adopted as a standard for Snipers on July 27, 1944 and served in the war up to 1945. However, they were developed with limited quantities by the wars end. According to Ordinance Records for World War II, only 7,971 M1Cs were delivered by the war's end. Also, because of the world's end in August 1945, several receivers were left incomplete when development was discontinued, but the start of the Korean War restarted production. Springfield Armory also had to fix up 4,796 M1Cs that were damaged during World War II. Although most of the fixed M1Cs utilized WWII era SA or WRA barrels, or dated early 1950s barrels, some did contain LMR or HRA barrels along with other mixes of parts.

Peace Walker Incident

Main article: Peace Walker Incident

Big Boss, while investigating the supply port of Puerto del Alba to find out what activities that a mysterious militaristic force, the Peace Sentinel, were commencing in Costa Rica, managed to procure some design specs for the M1C after learning that they were transporting nukes into Costa Rica. The Militaires Sans Frontières eventually managed to upgrade the M1C to allow for three levels of zoom. While trying to search for Vladimir Zadornov in the Aldea Los Despiertos/Cafetal Aroma Encantado after he managed to escape, the MSF managed to procure design specs for a modified M1C that was able to shoot "PSYCHE recovery rounds." After developing it, they modified it even further.

Behind the scenes

"A modified version of the M1 rifle carried by U.S. infantrymen and Marines during the Second World War, adapted for use as a sniper rifle. Zoom can be adjusted.
While not nearly as accurate as a true sniper rifle, it makes up for this shortcoming with its high rate of fire.
(Rank 2) It also features a scope with three levels of zoom, which allows the user to match the magnification to the target distance and boosts the gun's potential as a sniping weapon.
