Default I have a World war 2 style M1 .30 carbine

I have a, well, a wwII style M1 .30 carbine that u use to hunt with, its a nice weapon, good bush whacking rifle, small for my size, and good for deer, but where i hunt i have a little more range then id like, its accurate up to 100 yards but i shoot a little further then that. i was wondering if there was any way that i might be able to attach a medium range scope/sight for it, im not really comfortable with the peep sight that it has on it, is there anyone who may be able to help me out?

Just my opinion, but if you are shooting at ranges needing a scope, you may be caliber challenged with the .30 carbine.

that is very true BUT, at the moment its all i have and i like this weapon very much, im just looking for something that might help but not ruin the integrity of the WWII style, something i can attach without destroying it

It is certainly possible to scope an M1 Carbine. However, in the end, you still have a fairly hot pistol cartridge, and a scope really does not increase the energy of the .30 carbine cartridge.

If money is a challenge right now, you can get a decent Moisin- Nagant for what you will spend on a scope mount, rings and a scope for the carbine.

Default Your M1 carbine

I love mine too. It is just a fun gun to shoot and you can be accurate out to 300 yards on iron sights I will list a scope mount and some scopes. Just remember it does not hit that hard over 150 yards.

Check out the rest of the sight you might find some other things.

What c3shooter said. The M1 carbine is a super cool little gun, and I know several people who have taken many deer with them, but beyond 100 yards or so, I think I would have to say go with a more powerful round. And, like c3 said, a Mosin Nagant will be cheaper (even with ammo) than a scope set up for the M1 carbine. Plus, it's a beautiful rifle in a kind of rugged, russian, good for a rifle or a club, kind of way.
