    The M1 Carbine I Cherry Picked

    Most of y'all know I was moving some M1 Carbines. I cherry picked the second nicest of the bunch for me (the nicest one was an unissued carbine northward of 3k).

    Here's the Saginaw 1942/43 receiver with matching barrel. It's obviously been rearsenaled due to the bayo lug and safety. But she's mine.

    Nice, that's why I could never work in a gun shop. My whole paycheck would be spent before I got it.

    Yea, it sucks when the boss hands you a "DUE BILL" instead of a paycheck.

    Very nice. They had been phased out of service when I joined the Corps. Many ended up with the South Vietnam Army. When I was in country I had the opportunity to try one on a combined practice exercise. I loved the rifle. It is a nice combination of form and function. Too bad they just did not perfect the ammo for it to increase its lethality instead of abandoning the gun. But that is beyond my expertise so I mourn its loss without being judge mental. I still think it is a beautiful rifle.

    There was also an AMT semi auto and Ruger Super Blackhawk both chambered in 30 Carbine.

    She's a beauty. I'm surprised I never did buy one after I got home.

    That's what I was issued my first year. Sure wish those bayonets had been more available. They'd have made a nice carry knife. I had a claymore bag full of 30 rounders. After they issued us M16s, I later bought a folding stock M2. I loved that one. Killed a ton of rats with it along the river bunkers. We'd pull the bullets and dump some of the powder to make them quieter. Sometimes I'd load shot from shells I'd scrounge from the gate guards. Many years later, I read in a loading manual that the powder used was probably H110 and it specifally warns against using reduced charges. I guess that's why I always carried a cleaning rod when I was shooting rats. Once in a while a bullet wouldn't make it out the barrel.

    They are so light and handy, with the right bullets, they would be perfect for the little women at home.

    With a friend browsing a Pawn Shop, watched a customer bring in two M1 Carbines! We put our names on the counter. After the right wait time, for $500? each, we still have them. They had sat in a German Government armoury for years.

    1943 Inland has been my companion for about 45 years. Rode with me in a patrol car, rode with me in an unmarked unit, usually goes with me on road trips, the rest of the time is spent at home with a Seymour 30-round mag inserted and two Inland 15-round mags in the stock pouch.

    Not all that accurate, maybe 5" groups at 100 yards on a good day. Not all that powerful, probably equivalent to a .32-20, nowhere near what is needed for serious hunting. The strong points are absolute reliability (with good ammo & mags), 36" overall length, about 5 lbs. empty weight, very easy to carry and handle in just about any situation, and able to provide much greater range with accuracy than any handgun (which was the original concept back in the day).

    I have an Inland which saw service in Israel and was returned to the US without an import stamp. It has become my primary HD weapon loaded with Hornady Critical Defense 110ís.

    In one of bis books Jim Cirillo speaks highly of the .30 Carbineís street performance. His word carries a lot of weight with me.
