    open clip

    This may have been asked already but I don’t know what to call it so don’t know how to search it. All the M1’s I’ve seen, even in the movies has that open clip under the barrel. What is it for?

    If you mean something like a loop for a sling, with part of it removed; that's a stacking swivel. The stacking swivels for three rifles would be hooked together, and the rifles placed butt down on the ground, making a sort of tripod. That kept the arms upright out of the mud etc. Stacking arms as it was called goes back to the days of the flintlock muskets. Then the bayonets would be fixed, then hooked together.
    Theres a picture of the stacking swivel and stacked Garands here, just scroll down a bit:

    The thief may possess something he stole, but he does not own it.
    The owner has a right to take his property back from the thief.
