Default How a Garand Operates - VIDEO

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:
