Dayton, Ohio – -( Inland Manufacturing, LLC is proud to introduce the Advisor M1 Pistol that will be available in March, 2016.

The new “Advisor”, Inland’s M1 pistol features many of the same characteristics of the original Inland Carbines and are manufactured in the USA!

The “Advisor” M1 pistol is modeled after the modified M1 carbines that was a popular conversion made by US Military Advisors during the Vietnam Era .

These “Military Advisors” found that the compact and reliable M1 carbine could be made even more suitable for their specific missions by cutting the barrels down to pistol lengths and utilizing either a cut down standard stock or the M1A1 folding stock, the folder was the stock of choice if they could get their hands on one.

These modified M1 carbines, like the Inland Manufacturing M1 Advisor Pistol, were favored by the US Military Advisors as well as the Tunnel Rats tasked with clearing the matrix of tunnels and engaging in extreme close quarters.

The new for 2016 Inland Advisor, chambered in .30 carbine, features a 12” barrel with type 2 barrel band, adjustable rearsights, push button safety, round bolt, and a “low wood” walnut stock modified M1A1 stock minus the wire portion of the stock making the “Advisor” a legal pistol. The Advisor includes a 15 round magazine and utilizes a 30 rd mag catch to allow high capacity magazines. The barrel flash hider is a conical flashider and is threaded 1/2” x 28 tpi allowing the use of your favorite accessories with the same threads!

The modifications to the Inland Manufacturing M1 Advisor Pistol’s M1A1 Stock does allow for the re-attachment of the wire portion of the stock, however NFA rules do apply.

I have shot an advisor pistol. It is useless without using the stock.

Clumsy pointing . Not an improvement over the carbine and not that much easier to carry. Serves no purpose but “neat”.

Put the folding stock on and you have a weapon.. This is a noise device.


Talking about a gun that still seems to be unreleased. Maybe they changed their minds?


I carried one of the Vietnam Advisor while in Nam, and it did its job very well. I nicknamed mine “Sweet Thing”, since it never let me down. I am waiting on these to be available, and will get one. I will put it in a cut down M1 Carbine stock to replicate Sweet Thing. It looks like it has a early push button safety, which will be changed out 1st thing. None of the ones in Nam had the push button ones.


Haven’t had to trust my life with my Hi Point 9mm Carbine yet, but I have never had a malfunction of any type with ANY ammo, new or reman. I wouldn’t be uncomfortable in any situation using it.

Project Pete: You must be a very young man. Not only have you no sense of history, but do not understand that neither a 9mm Luger, nor the .45 ACP operate at the 38,500 psi of the .30 Carbine. This is a “light rifle” cartridge designed in initially in 1938 to be used in an 18 inch barrel. The relatively short barreled handgunschambered for the cartridge have been around since the 1960’s. Quit whining about “ammunition availability” and start hand loading your own. Ron Norton of Inland Manufacturing has built a folding stock machine gun (not a submachine gun, as… Read more »

Hey CPT O, Project Pete has not whined since 20 Dec. 2015. He could be dead by now!
Project Pete, this is Sierra Seven Bravo 01, have you got comms? Answer up is you are still alive, dam_ it! over.

Captain O

I’ll tell you one thing, if he wants an inexpensive pistol-caliber Carbine, tell him that he can always buy a Hi-Point 9mm Luger, or .45 ACP. His “itch will be scratched”. I wouldn’t trust my life to a Hi-Point, but if he would, he’s welcome to do so.

It’s his funeral.


it’s the end of march. i can’t find a seller online.

Captain O

Evidently Project Pete You Tube and Internautas have no concept of either history or the .30 Carbine and how effective it can be. As a Vietnam-era veteran I have seen how well both the .30 Carbine and .30 Carbine “Adviser” versions are not only viable for personal defense, but the 18″ barreled carbine can also serve as a short range (50 yard) whitetail deer and varmint rifle. The .30 Carbine is VERY efficient when it comes to personal defense in either guise. The 12″ barreled pistol version is going to yield velocities in the vicinity of those generated by the… Read more »


Right on! Way more foot pounds downrange than a 9mm MP5 .

I wonder if a BATF registered M2 trigger group could drop into it with some internal stock work for the selector switch. Now that would be bad ass!


I have experienced terrorism twice. Yes I have a CCW. As a bug out gun or home defense. Why not? Not stupid in a critical situation. Easy to hide under the seat of your vehicle, along with some mags. Heck driving with it , you could leave it beside you and discharge it quickly if need be. Only my opinion. Nice plinker too.


Why on Earth would you need it? What is it good for??

Steve Honaker

Love this concept, would like to SBR one with addition of wire para stock and suppress it. I think it would make a great home defense, shtf gun for urban use. Might be a bit expensive but with the Hornady Critical Defense round or soft points it would be versatile and effective. Any idea on which “can” would best quiet the .30 m1 and mask the fireball?


hard to get where do you live Mars? This is not my idea of a hand gun anyway. it’s a cut down M1 Carbine. stupid design!

Glenn Palmer

Used one similar but the M-2, full auto capable, in Vietnam very effectively.. Great piece for a convoy driver too.

Why on EARTH would they chamber this in such a terribly expensive and difficult to get caliber without also making one chambered in say….9mm or .45 or something more common? I would literally RUN out to buy one of these if it were in a caliber I could get cheap surplus.

Gary Hutchins

The early M1 Carbines had the push button safety but was changed because the soldiers would push the magazine release instead of the safety. can the safety be changed to the rotating safety to prevent the accidental dropping of the magazine (a bad situation in Law Enforcement or the military)?


I’ve got a Military issue M1 Carbine in very good shape. I have always sought a Folding stock or pistol sized M1. I would like to chat. Thanx John
