The Johnson rifle was a competitor with the Garand during US Marine Corps trials over adoption of a self-loading design to replace the bolt-action M1903 Springfield as their service arm. With little advantage between either design, the Garand was adopted mainly because of logistical concerns. Christened "the Model of 1941", the Johnson rifle was sold to the Dutch for use in the East Indies, but a Japanese invasion prevented their delivery. These rifles were then turned over to the US Marine Corps, who assigned them to their new paratrooper units due to the rifle's easy-to-remove barrel, making the weapon more compact for parachute drops. It was for this same quality that the Johnson rifle was assigned to OSS agents working with guerilla units.
