actual m1 carbines can and do fire modern and surplus carbine ammo.

the only non military carbine look alikes are made by universal. they arent very good guns. best just to get a surplus one from any number of sources.

I know that Auto Ordnance makes replicas of the M1 Carbine.

I've handled them in the gunshop side by side with a few WWII M1 Carbines before and they seem to be very well built, and on par with the WWII M1 Carbines. I would love to get my hands on one of their Thompson replicas sometime too.

I would imagine that their Thompsons are good quality since Auto Ordnance was the original manufacturer of the Thompsons. I find the history of the Thompson with the Gangsters very interesting.

I believe both, replicas and surplus rifles are around the same price tag, but I could be wrong. Personally I would rather have a surplus one, because it's been there and done that so to speak.
