This excellent video shows the unique design of the full automatic M2 Carbine and how it operates and functions. A live fire demonstration is conducted to compare the M2 with its Japanese counterpart, the Type 100 (一〇〇式機関短銃 Hyaku-shiki kikan-tanju) 8mm submachine gun. It also details the changes that were made to make the M1 fire in fully automatic mode.
