Developed out of a need to arm specialized infantry (mortar crews, paratroopers, machine gun crews, tank crews, engineersetc) the M1 Carbine came into service around mid-1942 and was issued up to and including the Vietnam war. Its design was to solve an issue where a standard full size rifle proved to be too heavy and unwieldy for specialized infantry to adequately perform their assigned duty while still lugging around a heavy backup weapon. The M1 Carbine with is .30 cartridge helps to bridge the gap between a full size rifle round and pistol round.
The King Arms M1 Carbine replica is a beautiful reproduction of this classic firearm. Made with real wood and aluminum alloy, the rifle looks and feels authentic. Adding to the realism is a Co2 powered gas recoil system which helps to imitate the bolt cycling action.
