Editors’ Picks 2018: Inland M30-C Carbine

posted on May 14, 2018

Inland, the maker of period-faithful M1 carbines, has introduced modern variations built on a chassis-style stock made by Sage. The stock, machined from billet aluminum then hardcoat anodized, provides bilateral sling points and multiple rail-mounting options for accessories. The M30-C carbine model features a 16.25" barrel—chambered, of course, for the .30 Carbine cartridge—and has a 1/2x28 TPI threaded muzzle capped with a birdcage-style flash suppressor. Other features include a Picatinny rear sight base and Picatinny-topped fore-end, a push-button safety, a round bolt and one included straight 10-round magazine. The magazine catch also accommodates curved, 30-round examples. The M30-C’s furniture is made by Ergo and includes that company’s Suregrip pistol grip and MSR multi-position buttstock assembly. inlanddepot.com
