Designed as a close-range defense weapon for trench fighting, the M1 Carbine has been used by militaries around the world. The M1 Carbine uses a bolt system that is very similar to that of the standard M1 rifle and a lightweight tappet-and-slide gas system. During World War II, many outside companies were contracted to produce M1's for the US government, including around 336,000 made by Quality Hardware of Chicago, Illinois.
This historical firearm has a Type 1 flip-up rear sight and no bayonet lug. The carbine has an Inland Mfg. 5-43 stamp on the barrel due to the fact that Quality Hardware did not produce their own barrels and a P proofmark is visible as well. The rifle also has an RMC Rock-Ola Mfg. Co. manufacturer stamp and a crossed cannons inspector's cartouche visible on the stock. The carbine is in NRA excellent condition and comes with a military olive drab 1" web sling.
