With only 10 rounds needed to complete the drill, practicing it can save much time and money while honing the skills necessary to be a competent close-range defender with any carbine or large-format pistol, not just the M1.
I know the M1 carbine was issued in large numbers during World War II but that it was considered to be under-powered. It seems our military would have been better served by a firearm of this type that had better performance. Why wasn’t this done?
Many M1 carbine owners would never consider such modifications to a wartime gun with significant provenance, those who have run-of-the-mill arsenal-rebuilt or commercial examples, and who are willing to experiment, are likely to find that the M1 carbine can provide service comparable to modern PDW-type platforms.
From M1 carbines to M1A1 paratrooper models, Auto-Ordnance maintains its lineup of factory-fresh repeaters with the same handling characteristics and timeless appeal as the originals carried on D-Day.
