    I haven't had a chance to shoot my M1A1icon as yet....
    To get back on the original topic... My first carbine I owned in 1982 was an unmolested, early featured Winchester with flip sights. It easily bounced a pop can with every shot at 100 yards. That was the best shooting carbine I ever owned. My 1943 Correct inland I got back in about 2012/2013 was a solid 2.5 to 3 MOA shooter from the bench. Of the dozen or so I have had, 4 MOA would be average. My 68 year old eyes are a limiting factor, though. I used to enjoy shooting empty 12 gauge hulls off the cross bar of the 25 yard target frame with my carbines!

    Many thanks for that. I 'finally' got to shoot the Carbine on Tuesday, my local outdoor range finally reopened with appropriate Covid restrictions.



    So, booked in, just me and my Carbine and the wildlife.

    Tested the NOS M2 outfit too.

    What a lovely rifle to shoot, I tied a cloth around the leather pad on M1A1icon to protect the now fragile leather before slipping on the twin mag pouch.

    It had the effect of making a great cheek pad. The rifle shot very well, I could only go back to 50 yards, but it was printing two inch groups and I am very happy with that.

    I remembered to aim low, following the group advance...

    What a lovely mild mannered rifle and cartridge to shoot, very light kick with more of a muzzle flip than anything.

    Very, very enjoyable and I have to say, I actually found the M1A1 stock more comfortable than the M2 stock.

    Back to the range this evening guys....
