A brief history of the M1 Carbine
US Carbine, Caliber .30, M1 served as a lightweight semi-automatic carbine for
the US Military from July 1942 ~ the 1960’s. The M2 (selective fire and fully
automatic) and the M3 (active infrared scope system) are not covered in this
Guide. In 1941, the Ordnance Department requested that US firearm companies and
designers compete to develop a smaller and handier weapon for service troops
such as truck drivers, medics, and paratroopers. The new .30 M1 cartridge was
designed for an effective range of 300 yards using a round-nose 110 grain bullet.
Most agree that the effective combat range is about 200 yards.
Winchester was awarded the initial contract in September 1941, the Inland Division
of General Motors turned out to be the largest producer of M1 Carbines. A total
of over 6 million M1 Carbines were produced by several contractors such as IBM,
Underwood Typewriter Company, and the Rock-Ola Jukebox Company. The rarest are
the Irwin-Peterson models with just over 4,000 produced.
first glance, the M1 Carbine appears to be smaller version of the US M1 Garand
rifle. The M1 Carbine has a different gas system, trigger mechanism design, and
is fed by a detachable magazine.
