PostSubject: M1 carbine   Sun Mar 14, 2010 12:43 pm

Went to a gun show in Illinois yesterday, and what do to you know, I ended up dropping $974 on an authentic, ww2 M1 carbine. There was a one day waiting period, and now I'm on my way to pick it up....any thoughts? After field stripping it and cleaning it, I should be shooting it by the end of the day today.
I'll share my experiences when I get back in town, I don't have Internet connection at my ranch.
Any thoughts?

Mine had a lot of jamming issues which i couldn't get anyone to fix so i traded it in for a SKS. When it fired though it was a really fun and nice gun to shoot, wouldn't mind buying one again if the price was right.

@Wolf

Standard mag is detachable and holds 15 .30 cal Carbine rounds. There is a 30 round mag out there as well that the M2/M3 Carbines used since they were selective fire.

Congrats, my friend! I've always liked the M1 Carbine, it's an excellent rifle. Somebody remind me; does the M1 Carbine fire .45 or 30-06?

Yeah. The other two aren't rifle rounds, they're other carbine rounds.

It seemed like you were shocked at how big the .30 carbine cartridge was, so I clarified by saying it isn't the same size as a rifle round. The two rounds next to the silver one are other carbine rounds, not like a 5.56 or something.

Not the size but the different style of bullet it was....I figured it would shoot the regular .30 cal round to cut down on cost to manufacture.

Unrelated, but do you realize the M3 "Grease Gun" was built using parts found in a plumbing shop and could be manufactured for under $5?

I know, I hope they run to every plumbing shop in the US and seize every pipe and welder's torch.
