How the Garand Operates Video - Amazing Design and Engineering

I spent a good deal of time on Sunday downloading and working on improving/enhancing the audio, video and transitions in this old Army training film which, in my opinion, is still one of the very finest detailed explanations of how the Garand operates. I tweaked the audio to bring the volume and tone up and the video to make the contrast a bit better. Unfortunately, I know of no way to remaster the video to get an HD version of it. I also wanted to swap the cheesy music with something a bit more current and a strike a sort of "memorial tone" with it, in honor of the men who defended our nation with this marvelous rifle.

The more I watch this, the more amazed I am by John Garand's engineering genius and both the complexity of the Garand itself and the testament to America's industrial skill and might that something this complex was able to be mass produced to efficiently and effectively.

I hope you enjoy it and I welcome, as usual, any/all constructive criticism.

Here's the video:

Thank you for your work sir. As a "student of the Garand" I appreciate it.

As a side note. I have considered creating some videos, first one being on the Remington 51, to remind people that, as great as he was, John Moses Browning wasn't the ONLY brilliant designer of his era. Garand, Petterson, Johnson, Newton, and others were actively contributing to the firearms industry. Even take a look at Duidonne Saive who made his own design contributions and finished JMBs "P-35", and made his own contributions to other FN designs.
