    According to our Sec. of State all these weapons are “assault rifles”.

    At one time or another, everything was an assault weapon.

    True but she use the title “Assault Rifle” to prohibit the importation to the US of M1 Garand’s from the ROK.

    Actually, it was likely that Hitler coined the term 'assault rifle' ['sturm gewehr'] to describe his [AK 47-like] StG 44- but really, it does not apply to the Garand. Indeed, it took the M1 another ~15 years development to enter service as the M14,- with a decent sized, detachable magazine & selective auto-fire - to qualify as such.

    I might be wrong, but I thought the importation of the ROK M1 Garand rifles were allowed, but the M1 Carbines were denied. Things may have changed since I last checked, it's difficult to keep up on such things anymore.

    okay so I an't out of high school yet so my income is pretty low and my knowledge to find these weapons aren't to high either. Is it possible if anyone can help me with this?

    This all assumes that you are a Citizen of the United States. For starters, the minimum legal age for purchasing a long arm, (rifles, or shotguns) is 18. Parents may also purchase a firearm in their name for their children. This all assuming there is no disqualifying history, Criminal record, that sort of thing. Next there is price to consider, an M-1 Garand will be expensive depending on maker, condition etc. Prices will range between 600-2,000 USD service grade being at the lowest end of the scale. It would be prudent to research them online, gun brokers, gunsamerica, there are a number of sellers who showcase the different offerings much like Ebay. Even though you might make a deal online, the transfer must still take place at a licensed dealer near you. The seller will ship it to the local shop of your choice, and you do the paperwork, and Nics check there. :Take particular notice : Do not buy any such firearm from a Chinese manufacturer. The quality is horrific, and not to be trusted.. Same goes for Chinese ammunition.
    One reason the M-1 Carbines were barred from import is that they have a detachable magazine, where the Garand has a fixed internal magazine. (A truly B.S. reason, but thats why)
    Attend gun shows, talk to people who are selling what you are interested in, research on line, and you will be able to learn all you might want to know about any firearm.

    If this is correct I damn sure haven't seen any ROK M-1 Garand's on the market here! I'd like to have one, and one chambered for 7.62mm too.

    I remember reading a a book about some F (fox) company of marines fighting in Korea during the Korean war and with the m-1 carbine they would have to aim at the heads. Since the Chinese had body armor on the them. Quite interesting I say.

    It wasn't body armor, I think. It was the thick, quilted Chinese PLA "Volunteers" winter uniforms. The relative low velocity of the carbine round lessened its effectiveness at ranges beyond 50m, IIRC. In open terrain of much of Korea and against often much greater numbers, that was a problem. Incidentally, it was the M-2 Carbine, that was effectively a sub-machine-gun....

    The cartridge used by the M1 carbine can be classed as a pistol cartridge, and was based on the .32 Winchester case. It was 1.6" / 42mm long and used a .30 cal (7.62mm) 110 grain FMJ bullet driven to a velocity of 1,995 FPS / 606.5 MS giving an energy of 967 Ft. Lbs. / 1,311 J . This performance exceeds that of the .357 Magnum cartridge using the same weight of bullet. The one problem is the very short,and light 110 gr bullet. It lacks the mass to carry the energy to a more distant target. 200 yards 1,236 FPS/ 373 Ft.Lb. 300 yards 1,035 FPS/ 262 Ft. Lb. Bullet drop from line of sight at 200 yds is 13 inches, and at 300 yards 48 inches.
    The M2 selective fire was the better of the two, even though it had no better performance at distance, it was a bullet hose, and very controllable.
