A REAL M-1 Carbine!

My buddy Chief surprised me with a wonderful gifty this weekend, an M-1 Carbine! He knew I had one or two Universal carbines from our days in West Texas a decade or three ago and picked up a little war-era Saginaw M-1 Carbine in a private sale. Since he already had an IBM carbine of comparable quality, he decided to spread the hoplo-happiness to me, rather than start an M-1 menagerie (he is shopping for another gun safe though, so who knows?).






What did Santa bring you?

    Awesome! That pic is just like old times... only you guys are a little grayer (just like me). Damn. I wish I were there and we were playing Six-gun Shootout or Cosmic Balance, eating some of Chief's grilled potatos and onions

    VERY nice! That's about as cool as a gift gets!

    I've always loved the M1, and i consider it a much-maligned little weapon.

    Fine system, less than optimum round. It will work, however.

    I got curious a couple of years back and tried loading .30 Carbine using a Sierra Varminter 110-grain HP; worked out pretty well.
