My M-1 Carbine
 
Greetings. I picked up my carbine a couple of weeks ago at the C&E Gun Show in Hickory, NC. It is stamped Inland on both the receiver and the barrel along with a date of 1-44. The serial # prefix is 493. The stock is from an M-2.

The below picture shows the result of my first trip to the range with my carbine. As you can see I ran 5 strings of ten through it. The max distance at the indoor range is 25 yds which is what I took the target out to. I obviously have work to do but I guess it's not bad for a first time shooting an M-1 carbine. I did have 3 or 4 FTF (each time it was either the last or next to last round)and I'm pretty sure it was due to a weak magazine spring. I plan on getting a couple of new magazines soon so I hope that the issue will be corrected.

I actually traded for it but the price on it was $625. I would have worked the guy down had I used cash.

CMP has bunch of service grade M1 carbines for sale for under $600.

See odcmp.com

Very nice groups. Try one click left on the rear sight. You should be dead on.

I've owned carbines since the early 60's, and they're still my favorite.

Get a 30 rounder mag for it.

Not to be a troll, but most of the reviews I read said the 30 rounders were cheap POS that are jamomatics. Can you recommend specific ones to buy and where to buy them?

The information you have received about 30 round magazines for M1 carbines would be correct. MOST of them are junk.

Lately, I have been using aftermarket/commercial made 20 round magazines with reliability as good as 15 round USGI magazines.
