Dayton OH – -(Ammoland.com)- Inland Manufacturing’s new highly functional and cool-looking .30 caliber Inland Manufacturing M1 Scout Carbine is being marketed by MKS Supply, LLC.
This new, all-American-made carbine incorporates design elements and benefits of the popular scout rifle popularized by Jeff Cooper in the 1980s.
Inland’s .30 caliber Scout Carbine is fitted with a military-style conical flash hider. The barrel thread is 1/2-half-inch x 28 so the flash hider may be removed to fit a (legally registered) aftermarket sound suppressor or silencer if desired.
Here is what is functionally cool! The Inland Scout Carbine has a black anodized aluminum upper handguard with Picatinny rail for mounting long eye-relief scopes such as a pistol scope or long eye relief scope and provides the quick target acquisition generic to scout-type firearms. The Inland Scout Carbine also has military-type iron sights.
Inland’s Picatinny rail also makes it possible to mount red dots, lasers, lights and other accessories. The rail/handguard is attached to the barrel, which provides additional barrel stiffening resulting in some additional accuracy.
The American Walnut stock is sprayed with a special proprietary industrial textured polymer that gives it a tough, good-looking covert black finish.
Inland’s Scout Carbine will accommodate 10-, 20-, and 30-round military magazines, and it is sold with one 15-round magazine in all states except California, where it is sold with one 10-round magazine.

they need a 7.62×39 model
Very nice—just not at that whopping price !!!! DMD
LOL That black polymer is a built in Picatinny Rail for mounting scopes, special optics laser sights, etc. Very functional for serious shooting. LOL
I have a small collection of M-1 Carbines and I can make a soda can dance at 150 yards all day long. They were not made to be super accurate – didn’t have to be. Now, if these new ones have a real American Black Walnut stock and Inland is coating them with Stealth Black Polymer, SHAME on you Inland. Black Polymer coating is for plastic and fiberglass stocks.
I am going to get the Jungle Model if anything above the M1 Carbine as it has a Suppressor and I can have the Non Coated Walnut Stock. Any other upgrades I can have done on my own. I may even go for the repro of the original Carbine at this point. Inland can do what they want with the Polymer Coating. It does not work for me.
Ok, don’t laugh too hard. This sounds like a protection or bug out rifle. Here is the don’t laugh too hard part. I wonder if they can leave the Stealth Black Polymer off? If it comes down to SHTF time I know how to conceal my own armor. WP
The originals are very inaccurate, and the cartridge is weak, but they are fun to shoot. How accurate is this M-1 carbine at 100 yards?
I carried a M1 Carbine in Korea, and there was NO accuracy issue with them out to 200 yards. Beyond that, not so great. Carried a cut down M2 Carbine in Vietnam for CQC, and it was Fantastic!
Fulton Armory makes and sells them seperately.
Wonder if the upper hand guard will fit other M1 Carbines and perhaps will be made available separately..
