    I have an early AO M1 Carbine. When they first started making them they had to use surplus magazines and mine was pretty much disintegrating. Note that the AO M1 Carbine is made out of investment cast parts. The originals were all forged steel. You can install original, adjustable rear sights fairly easily. And you can find them on E-Bay or from various surplus dealers like Numrich or SARCO. However, the rear sights and magazines are about all that is interchangeable with original M1 Carbines. AO made changes to their Carbine that makes very little interchange with the original version.… Read more »

    Have a photo of my Dad with M1 Carbine, serving in the Pacific, 40th infantry, 164th FAB…told me these were crap. He carried a 911 in a shoulder holster also. Also, have a photo of him with that…

    “told me that these [M1 carbines] were crap.”

    Uhm, do you mean M1 carbines or M1 _rifles_ ?? They were NOT the same firearm!! I have read many say that the M1 RIFLE was, indeed, a piece of crap. Not so, the M1 carbine.

    I have a WW2 Inland. I paid $12.00 for it in 1965 at 14 years old at a real Army surplus store! That was pre ATF in 1968!
    Still shoots great!
    At that time you could buy surplus anything militaria! Tanks, jeeps, airplanes, guns of all sorts, from most all countries in WW2!
    About 7 years ago I finally got it’s big brother, the M1 Garand. Another GRRRRREAT rifle!!!!!!
    They are making Inland M1 carbines again at about $1,000.00

    I just picked up a new Chiappa M-1-9 this has a wood stock, has very good quality and take the mags from a Berreta 92, this gun out of the box even with the manual stating a break in period of 150 rounds has worked flawlessly right out of the box, also it came with the bayonet lug!

    The Bayonet lug is a separate piece that fits under and over the barrel. The front sight needs to be removed to put it on. California currently prohibits them because the people writing the laws don’t know what they are doing. Check at Sarco for the part or search for it.

    I have one of Auto Ordinance’s M1 Carbines. Bought it about a year ago. ‘Regular’ type like above, but without the graffiti and art…and without a bayonet lug either. All I have to say is that it is NOT reliable at all. It is one of the worst functioning new, out-of-the-box rifles I’ve ever owned. It constantly jammed, the bolt would lock up. The hardware didn’t work well together. I switched ammo brands about four times; it didn’t make much of a difference. I didn’t get reasonable performance out of it until after about 500-600 rnds were fired. I kept… Read more »

    About 52 yrs ago, I went to an NRA convention in Chicago. There was a table with brochures on it. I picked up one and added it to others I had picked up. Later when I got home, I read the brochure on receiving an M1 Carbine fully serviceable. I filled out the application, sent it to Rock Island IL. Got a reply to send them $17.50, $2.50 s&h, $20.00. Back in those days, ammo was very affordable, not like today. My carbine was manufactured in 1943, by Winchester. It is now my family heirloom to be handed down to… Read more »

    In Vietnam we armed our “little people” {rhades} with the little guns. Worked great.

    I arrived in VN mid-1963 and was issued one of the little guns, although I wasn’t one of the “little people”. I was also issued a pair of WWII Jungle Boots which I dearly loved; still have them although in sad shape now (brown with green canvas sides and two buckles at top). Refused the black boots w/green canvas when they came out. Was later (about 6 mos) issued a M14. Liked the carbine better but had to accept the M14. I now have my own carbine.

    I have an m-1 Carbine with a scope on it, and an m-1 Inland advisor pistol, both are nice guns and shoot well, I wasn’t looking for an original piece I wanted one to shoot. Had a little fun getting to get the advisor to cycle but once I got a couple of 100 rounds through it and the magazines and it loosened up it works just fine for a truck gun and boy is it fun to shoot!!!!!!

    All I want is an ORIGINAL M1CARBINE at a discount price/ it says 30 carbine, did you forget how to adjust a peep sight? If you want a black gun build one or buy one! I haven’t heard squat about a bayonet lug on a black gun I guess they don’t rate for one!

    I have an original M1 carbine that I prefer not to shoot. I don’t want another M1 carbine to hang on the wall. I would buy a reasonably priced copy of the original to shoot. I would also like a shooter in a cartridge that is a little better ballistically than a 70 to 80 year old cartridge. Having said that a reproduction shooter with more advanced sights would be nice. In case you haven’t noticed they have made some significant advances in even peep sights in the last 100+ years. I have nothing against peep sights. I have tang… Read more »

    Hunters have used the M1 Carbine in .30 cal since the end of WW2 for deer. Like the AR, veterans adopted the firearms they had used in battle. I have mine as one of the firearms I carried during my career. It still has the armory number painted on the butt. I carried the M2 Carbine at the start of my career. I found it easier to carry than the M-16. The M1 is a rifle I can take into the brush and not worry about it getting scratched or dinged. If it does, it’s very easy to fix.

    Hunting? Ya gotta be kidding me. I was fresh from Nam with little money. J.M. Fields had wooden barrels of M1 carbines for $50 each. that was before I got into hand loading and the only ammo you could get was surplus RNFMG. You could do more damage with a .22 mag. Went back to Fields and bought a 8mm. Mauser for the same price . Killed many hogs and deer with it. Unless they have made VAST improvements In tho .30 ammo, I wouldn’t think about hunting with one.

    my M1 carbine has the bayonet lug on it, just like my M1 Garand does.
    haven’t shot either one in some years now.

    Every M15s and most M16s (Black Ritoofles)I encountered in the USAF (1949-1974) did indeed have a bayonet lug attached and for whatever reason,there were bayonets in the gunrooms. In SEA, I very infrequently noted bayonet equipped M15s.

    Is there a generic GI issue model? Does it only come in 30 carbine? I would love to have one in 1 mm! Maybe with better peep sights and a little nicer furniture?

    Years ago I brought a 1948 Indiian Chief home from the Philippines while in the USN. Got tired of looking for parts after each ride and traded it for a CJ5 with a 304 V8 and an NRA M1 carbine. In the 60s NRA brokered a deal with Springfield Armory for M1 Carbines, M1 Garands and 1911 A1s for $20 shipped. I have the rifle(made by IBM in NY), the box, shipping labels and NRA parts diagram, never fired. One of my heirlooms to hand down to the next generation. The first firearm I bought in the 70s is a… Read more »

    Bayonet lugs were not standard during WWII. After the war, all the MI carbines were collected, stripped and refinished from tip to tail. After reassembly the bayonet lug was added and welded to the barrel. Almost immediately after completion, the MI carbine was reissued to the troops that needed them for Korea. That’s one of the reasons it’s so difficult to find an MI with all matching numbers – parts were literally thrown into a box for refinishing; when reassembling, no attempts were made to reunite the numbers. If you do find one with matching numbers, chances are it slipped… Read more »
