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?
I recently purchased an M1 carbine manufactured by Quality Hardware that has a bayonet lug. Is this part original to the gun or was it added later?
Although the M1911A1 was the standard U.S military sidearm during World War II, more than 350,000 S&W Victory Model revolvers were produced, and they accompanied many U.S. Navy and Marine Corps aviators during pivotal battles of the Pacific Theater.
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.
The guns being brought in from Ethiopia by Royal Tiger Imports represent one of the most important military-surplus finds in decades.
