There is actually one thing that makes the Garand better (superior has no place in this discusion anymore (imo)
): the Garand can be used for about 10 days in dusty, shallowed, difficult terrain without cleaning the interior of the rifle. (Maybe this info is wrong, I learned it form sombody else
The Karabiner is bolt action, yes, but the Garand had to be replaced in the 50's because of the 'ping'sound which betrayed his owner
. BTW: The governement siad this, we all know there is no continuous ping, many times yuou don't hear it because of the others who fire.
I only prefer he K98K because it's German and ..... it is beautifull (which is actually the same for the Garand in my opinion
