Buy 300 Blackout Online Adopte by the military at the beginning of World War II the Unit States Carbine Caliber .30 M1 better known as the M1 Carbine was intend for use by Soldiers such as truck drivers radio operators forward observers and mortar crewmen (just to name a few) for whom it was impractical to carry and use the larger and heavier M1 Garand rifle.
With a 15 (and later 30) round detachable magazine the semi-automatic M1 Carbine gave the Soldier using it a considerable amount of firepower especially compare to other military weapons at the time.
Along with the M1 Carbine Winchester design the new.30 Carbine cartridge by modifying the old.32 Winchester Self-Loading cartridge (read more about the .32 SL here). Though the .30 Carbine was certainly no slouch it was much less powerful than the .30-06 Springfield round fire by the M1 Garand.
The fact that the M1 Carbine was nearly 8″ shorter and about 4 pounds lighter than the M1 Garand and much more powerful and with a significantly longer effective range than the M1911 pistol made it a great choice for support troops paratroopers vehicle crewmen etc. However many Soldiers complain about the lack of stopping power in the .30 Carbine cartridge.
Towards the end of World War II the M1 Carbine was modifying to be capable of select fire operation and the resulting firearm (the M2 Carbine) was very popular during the Korean War. Until the introduction of the M-14 and the M-16 many years later the M2 Carbine was the only firearm in the Unit States Military’s inventory that had capabilities anywhere close to assault rifles such as the German StG 44 and the Soviet AK-47 (though the 7.92x33mm and 7.62x39mm cartridges use in those rifles were significantly more powerful than the .30 Carbine cartridge).
