Designed in 1940 as an alternative to the M1 Garand and issued to anyone who needed a smaller, lighter service weapon. The M1 Carbine served the US Military in WW2 and Korea until it was replaced by the select fire M2 version. I take out my Quality Hardware M1 carbine manufactured in July/August 1943 for a little exercise.
