      Its kinda weird how this gun isnt in every American household, you'd think a punchy little carbine, easy to use, cheap, reliable and mass produced would be everyone's door gun.

        it's called an AR-15 now.
        They are liked for a lot of the same reasons.

        It's pretty much been supplanted by the AR-15 family and modern PCCs. It's a very cozy gun but .30 carbine isn't terribly cheap unless you reload and even today the M1 has mag/feeding issues.

        you literally just described an AR-15

        That said, I love the thing

        It is super comfy and fun as hell to shoot. And incredibly accurate. Basically a beefed up 10/22. Is the AR a modern replacement? Sure. But the carbine is noticeably smaller, lighter, and less recoil. A very nice little rifle to toss around for any situation. So far I’ve been surviving off a big case of .30 my uncle gave me. Once that runs out it’s going to a sad day paying out the ass for more ammo.

        They were for a time. Basically got supplanted by the AR-15. It happens to everything when the factories eventually stop making them and starts making something else.

    It's a handy little thing. Maybe 6 pounds soaking wet, fires a 7.62mm round with half the energy of a 7.62x39mm, and has a full wooden stock.

      >7.62x39mm
      >7.62x33mm
      Probably 70-80%, definitely not "half" 7.62x39

        The muzzle energy of 30 carbine is about the same as .357 magnum.

          This is false.
          30 carbine has about much energy at 100 yards as a 357 magnum has at the muzzle.

    It was basically the AR-15 of its time and remained very popular through the '80s, but ARs replaced it. Lots of guerillas and insurgents used them. Still an excellent carbine, and given how many exist, it baffles me that businesses aren't making more ammo, magazines, etc. for these. It's still a very practical home defence weapon, truck gun, ranch rifle, and so on.

      they were on their way out in civilian hands well before the ar/ak got mainstream popularity.
      just cause supply was limited and it was already running out

    if .30 carbine wasn't almost a dollar a round I'd own one. I've been thinking real hard about taking the chance on a Chiappa M1-9. Older reviews say they're shit but newer reviews say they've improved the QC.

      the Chiappa is essentially a blowback 9mm in a body kit, not even close to an M1's light recoiling tappet-piston.

        well obviously. a 10/22 also has a different mechanism to an M1 too but it's still similar ergos. I'm thinking of an M1-9 because:
        >I don't really want a 9mm upper
        >I don't want to pay for an MP5 knockoff
        >9mm AKs beat themselves to shit
        >Marlin Camp 9s take S&W mags
        >PC 9s are kinda ugly to me and don't take 92 mags
        >I eventually want a 92

          It has a lot of qc issues. The 10/22 replica kit is the gold standard if you want ergos and a decent firearm.
          Unfortunately Beretta killing the cx4 killer their only 16in 92 mag pcc.

            The 10/22 kit fricks
            Its the best thing to happen to the 10/22. Also, the 10 round mags fit in the m1 pouches

    random historical observation: they were really fricking popular in the Pacific in ww2. take a look at footage from that theater, some squads are carrying 50%+ of carbines.

    meanwhile in europe you'll see tons of BARs in squads instead.

    I got one and I can confirm that it’s a supremely comfy gun.
    Yes, a short AR does most things better but no AR can beat the M1 in being comfy.

    What is the best new production M1 carbine?

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      Auto ordinance. Though you can still find surplus ones pretty easily and relatively cheap. I have a new production one and it's decent, but I beat myself up for not just waiting for the one from RTI. I would have gotten the surplus one if RTI customer service wasn't so shit and hadn't called me back three months later about the shipping issue.
