Dragged the M1 carbine out to the range the other day, after I found some .30 carbine ammo - hadn't shot it in years. I had forgotten how much fun shooting that little gun is... I thought we could do a "share your M1 Carbine" thread... Fire away!





Inland M1 Carbine (purchased in the 70's by my Grandfather for $20, still have the receipt)












50 yds, iron sights, still accurate!









M1 Carbine thumb, anyone?










with its little brother, 10/22 carbine model - looks like Ruger took a few design cues from the M1...



let's see yours!

If NJ has issues with low Tax Revenues - they need to understand I took my Tax Payments somewhere else because of their asshattery.

That is really cool and interesting. Do you know the story behind why they modified the stock and blued it? Where they thinking about marketing the M1 Carbine commercially, or was it some executives personal hunting rifle?

The '43 Underwood is what I use for a truck gun when my family takes a long trip.  I use Remington 110 grain JSPs.

Most of the M! contractors made experimental and presentation guns. They are easily identified by the EX or X and a number on the receiver. Most all were blued. Some were made for presentation to company officials and some were possible prototypes for later commercial sale. This gun is all correct with all the parts having the correct manufacture codes including the magazine. It came into the local shop where I bought it for 250.00 a few months ago. They had no idea!

Mine is an Inland made in 1944 and was serviced in Italy as indicated by the FAT 82 cartouche on the stock.  This is one of the oft bemoaned Blue Sky Specials, and 100yd accuracy is around 4".  I have the magazine pouch on the "wrong" side of the stock because I'm a lefty and it doesn't interfere this way.

This little guy took me about 8mon to get running properly.  I'd all but given up when a member from the armory forums suggested that I try using high speed recoil springs.  I coupled that with some nickle plated brass that was loaded with 14.5gr W296 and it's just about 100% reliable now!

This thread is reminding me of the time I saw a Johnson rifle for sale for a good price a few years back, and didn't buy it.

Now I have to kick myself in the ass some more.

Oh well, at least I saw that nice Tanker Garand awhile back and...

...oh shit, I passed on that one too.

Universal Arms M1 Carbine. Low serial number, very accurate, very fun. I wasn't looking for an M1 carbine on the day I found it, but I couldn't pass it up once I found it.

There's my '44 IBM along with my '44 Colt M1911A1. Apart from the usual upgrades (bayo lug barrel band, rotary safety, late mag catch) and the front sight (RIA), it's completely IBM.

great posts so far! where are you guys getting your .30 carbine ammo? I got lucky and my WalMart gets it occasionally, but it's $25.97 / 50





I know that's still a decent price though...

I bought 5000 g.i. pulled down cases before the CMP got the carbines in a couple of years ago.  As long as remington keeps making the little 110 fmj, I'm sitting pretty with ammo.

I can roll my own, although more recently, I have bought it when I find it. My local True Value had some WWB .30 Carbine in stock, back in late '07, at $19 or so a box. I bought all they had. The prices went up to $29/box the very next week.




Since then, I've been shooting a lot of pistol and .22 LR, so I haven't even dented my stash.

That 1943 Underwood in the repro paratrooper stock in my first post in this thread was bought in the late '80s by my dad for $169 at Woolworth's in the Plymouth Meeting Mall (PA).  He gave it to me several years ago and I paid $175 + S&H for the stock.

hmm, I don't really want to invest in reloading right now, but I only have 1 box of 50rds on hand right now... I will try to stock up soon, but I've been spending my shooting funds on other purchases lately...
