    Bound's hubby here:

    You are actually talking Garand Sniper Rifles, of which there are three versions: MC1, M1C, and the M1D.

    The MC1 Garand was a Garand sniper rifle developed by the U.S.M.C. late in WWII. If I remember correctly, it mounted a Griffin & Howe detachable scope mount on the left side of the receiver, and required the off-setting of the scope to facilitate loading the en bloc clip.

    The M1C Garand was a Garand sniper rifle developed by the US Army, that mounted a fixed scope mount on the left side of the receiver and required the off-setting of the scope to facilitate loading the en bloc clip.

    The M1D Garand was a Garand sniper rifle developed by the US Army as a replacement for the M1C. The M1D actually has a uni-block mounted to the barrel forward of the receiver, and a single thumb screw attaches the scope rings to the base. The scope is slightly off-set to facilitate loading the en bloc clip. The M1D was manufactured in greater numbers and is typically the most encountered M1 sniper rifle, whether genuine or counterfeited.

    Good luck!

    Most variants of the Garand, save the sniper variants, never saw active duty. The sniper versions were modified to accept scope mounts, and two versions (the M1C, formerly M1E7, and the M1D, formerly M1E8) were produced, but not in significant quantities during World War II.[9] The only difference between the two versions is the mounting system for the telescopic sight. In June of 1944, the M1C was adopted as a standard sniper rifle by the U.S. Army to supplement the venerable M1903A4.[10]
