I just got a National Postal Meter M1 Carbine and I know very little about M1's. So if there is anything I need to know about either the general design or maker, it'll be appreciated. Thanks
Ok, thanks, is there anything else I don't need to take apart? Anything I should be careful with? Thanksc3shooter said:They cranked out tons of carbines in just a few years. Look for a book called "War Baby" by Larry Ruth (vol 1 and vol 2- see if your library can get it on interlibrary loan)
Never try to remove the gas piston. Takes special tool- does not need to come out for normal cleaning and maintenance.
I'm looking to get a Garand soon also. I went to the gunshow looking for a SKS but got drawn in to the cheapest M1 carbine I've ever seen. But ammo is $18/50robocop10mm said:More of the carbines were produced than the M1 Garands. Handy little rifles, but ammo is a little high.
Define an assault rifle. My definition of the worlds first assault rifle is the first rifle that assaulted someone. Probably a blackpowder smoothbore.303tom said:It was the worlds first Assault Rifle............
