You are probably thinking about the M1 Carbine which is 30cal Carbine . I remember them for salefairly cheap in the mid 1980's, think I paid $150 for mine. They were "Blue Sky" Korean Imports
The Carbine did what they were designed to do, replace the 1911 45acp giving the behind the lines men alittle better firepower than the sidearm
The M1's in the above posts are the M1 Garand in 30.06, in no way are they underpowered
