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 Winchester Repeating arms who produced a little over 800,000 M1 Carbines total.
This historical firearm has a Type 1 rear flip sight and no bayonet lug. The carbine has a Winchester undated stamp and a PW oval proofmark on the barrel as well. The rifle also has a Winchester 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.
