Ping! by NDTwoFives Ping! by NDTwoFives
The infamous sound of an empty M1 Garand rifle.

Seems that I can bypass the inking process for my drawings now. :meow:

EDIT: Played around with the levels to bring the lineart out.

I don't know if anybody knows this but back in world war 2 the soldiers used to ping empty M1 mags on there helmets to make the PING and when German soldiers piped there heads up, BAM!

Great work! The M1 Garand is the first semi-automatic service rifle in the world. The rifle makes that distinctive "bling" sound when it eject an empty clip. Yep, it's easily distinguishable for the enemy to hear the sound that it makes. A Service Grade Garand is much cheaper at $595 compare to the Colt LE6920 average price tag at $1000. However, I own both of them and love them both.

The famous sound ever made by a infamous rifle of WWII.

Not good on stealth missions,though. XD.

Oh and besides, the only downside of a silenced M1 Garand is also the "PING" sound. All goes well until they hear the PING sound. XD

Heck yeah! I've got a Springfield from WWI, and let me tell you it kicks like a mule! The Garand is easier. It has less of a kick. Less likely to blast me into the next state.

If in multiplayer you were playing german, it was good because: "Aha! reloading! Time to attack!" When playing US.American, it was good because: "Aha! That ping sounds nice, after emptying the whole clip in an unsuspecting german player" XD

It was indeed one of the Garand's major weaknesses. Good if you're engaging with individual riflemen, not so when you take on a full squad. Mind you there are other Garand users, plus Thompson gunners, BAR gunners, M1 carabiners, and the .30 cal MG operating in the background.

Worse if you're Japanese and there's a shotgunner behind the rifleman.

But you know what Japs fear most? The Gurkhas of the British Army. Who needs a katana when you have a handy-dandy kukri? During the China-Burma-India campaign, Japanese would find they're comrades on sentry duty with their heads missing the next morning.

Katana's longer. :-)
But more cumbersome in confined spaces, for sure.

Gurhkas elevated kukri from obscurity to popularity: it became an alternative to the machete, especially for tank crews.

And of course, there's always the knife and the handy-dandy entrenching tool, especially if you sharpened the blades on the latter. Favorite melee weapon of soldiers of the Western Front during the First World War.

And I remember that many M1 carbine users made modifications on their weapons that allow full-auto or select fire use.

Aye. This was the USM2, used from 1945 until the early years of the Vietnam War.

I've got a Garand and it's a comfortable rifle to shoot. The standard ammo is loaded with a 147 gr. bullet and less of a powder charge to lessen the strain on the operating rod which had a tendency to bend or break with heavier loads.
The "ping" is noticable close up, but probably not so much in the noise of battle. With practice, a soldier could insert a fresh clip pretty quickly.

Thanks for the info mate. yeah, I think that in open environments, the sound would dissipate much faster.
