Having a long gun that accepts the same cartridge as your handgun has made good sense for 150 years, but some of today’s modern pistol-caliber carbines take the idea a step further by sharing the same magazine.
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?
As the British military modernized its arsenal in the mid-19th century, the Pattern 1856 Cavalry Carbine joined the iconic Pattern 1853 Enfield in frontline service.
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?
