It is Parris Island. And it is still there. It is an island. And you couldn't hack it.

Those are M1 parade rifles. Chances are they have been deactivated for a generation or better. I am more concerned with those 8th and I Marines sloppy carriage of the rifles. There isn't a parallel line among those muzzles and the Color Guard in the photo looks like he has his rifle wrapped around his neck. That level of drill proficiency would not have been tolerated when I was in Corps and the Gunny would have had some extra practice for those Marines.
Uhh yeah, not so much. No such thing as a parade rifle. A rifle is a rifle. Those M1s are actually mil surplus. The firing pins are ususally out of them, but can always be replaced making the weapon operational. Its not the first time ever that the bolts were removed from the rifles. I think I can remember once were we did this when I was in.

As for the "sloppy carriage" of those rifles, dude please. This is not the parade deck. Those Marines were probably a good half mile or mile into the march, cold as balls, having been on their feet for 4 hours already by the time that pic was snapped. YOU want to hop out there and critique minor alignment variations? You have to be realisitic.
