The "U.S. Carbine Cal. .30, Ml" ended up being the U.S. military's most-produced arm ever. Used by US troops during WWII with variations seeing action through Korea and into the early years of Vietnam. Unlike with conventional carbines, which are typically just shorter versions of their parent rifles, the M1 Carbine and the M1 Garand are two completely different firearms, as the M1 Carbine fires a different bullet. This non-firing replica is true to the 1944 original. This is one of our best replicas yet. It has an authentic look and hefty feel, from the rich wood-toned stock and fore-grip to the blackened metal hardware, down even to the removable clip. This is a premier collector's replica, perfect for a historical display in your home or office.
