Some former G.I.-issue M1 carbines have been seen with two serial numbers instead of the traditional one stamped at the rear of the receiver. Why?
The Civilian Marksmanship Program, a privatized entity that was formerly the Office of the Director of Civilian Marksmanship, is selling surplus M1911 and M1911A1 handguns from the U.S. Army in order to support its mission of teaching and promoting marksmanship.
American Rifleman staffers got a chance to shoot a representative example of one of the M1 Carbines brought into the U.S. by Royal Tiger Imports.
Could American civilians order ‘03 Springfields from U.S. arsenals or were they for the military only?
