    The 100 yard sighting target is huge, with an acceptable area 16" wide x 12' high. The aiming point is at the centerline on the lower edge of this area. With the rear sight on '1-1.5', and aiming at...

    '100 magazines for each carbine. That would be like 260,000,000 magazines.'

    100 magazines each for 6 million M1 Carbines is 600,000,000. Either way its a lot of magazines, of which maybe...

    Yes, the SN in the barrel channel was done in Israel. All it means is, that's the stock it wore when they got it and it was good enough to use, so they marked it to stay with the carbine. It could be...

    I guess you meant 'auto-loading' because the M2 is select-fire. Otherwise one would have to think you are confused by the terms semi-auto and auto.
    The carbine struck me as typical of today's...

    I don't know. I have gotten confused. All I can say is you're shooting low so you need to lower the sight blade to get that muzzle up. If you do this with the rear sight on 1, everything will be...

    Oops. Okay, I'd say it had the 'wrong' sight on it after the rebuild and somebody 'corrected' it but didn't bother to sight it in. Yes, I agree, its not really a 'new' sight because they have really...

    There it is. I can't believe the discussion continues as if the question were not answered. Look in your carbine ordnance manuals to see exactly how to trim the sight blade at a slight angle. You...

    I don't think that's a lot for a nice striped wood set, as long as it wasn't done with a torch or stain last year.

    If 7.62x39 did not replace the .30 Carbine, neither will .300BLK, which is most useful with a suppressor in the subsonic loading. As a full-speed rifle round, .300 and 7.62x39 are ballistically very...

    All the pistol calibers are fine but with the small .30 Carbine you get magnum pistol power (or greater - 1990 FPS and 950 ft lbs) plus higher magazine capacity. I was going to try to make the AR but...

    In Case You Forgot Why We Love The Carbine

    Now that's a new one on me - some kind of 'field-expedient' bayonet on a Carbine? I'm guessing the armorer would remove the front sight, slide the rear band on, replace the sight, slide the assembly...
