          Comments about Kahr Arms® Auto-Ordnance M1 Carbine Centerfire Rifle:

          This carbine is perfect for the enthusiast who appreciates the M1 Carbine but doesn't necessarily want or need a particular specimen with a history of service.

          I understand these new production carbines feature a new barrel from Green Mountain and I can attest to the astounding accuracy (atypical for GI issue carbines). A 12oz can is in great peril within 125 yards.

          These Kahr/AO Carbines are wonderful shooters and are quite pleasant on the eyes. They're also comparable in price with their genuine (and possibly war-weary) GI counterparts. Another thing to consider is the warranty should you ever need it.

            used this in the eary days in Vietnam full auto/semi AKA M2 Carbine, This is the semi auto version.Once zeroed in it is deadly accurate,never had one jam or misfire easy to clean,assemble etc. This is made by my other favorite Thompson 45 cal Sub machine gun and made buy the same Mfr. !Functions best with 3 in 1 oil, not WD40 (WD 40 seems to get stickey in cold weather. Ammo is cheap and easy to reload. excellent weapon for bad weather,none rusting features etc.. Buy this and never look back. Just a bit of early military nostagia.

KAHR ARMS IS VERY PICKY ABOUT BEING A RELIABLE WEAPON..THATS A GREAT WAY TO BE.MY .30 IS ASSIGNED AS PERSONAL DEFENSE ONLY AND IN A SURVIVAL SITUATION,YOU CAN KILL FOR FOOD UP TO A DEER. KNOW THE LIMITATIONS OF THE ROUND..DONT TAKE ON A BEAR UNLESS YOUR LIFE DEPENDED ON IT.BUY ONLY FACTORY MAGS..THIS IS A MUST!110GR.FMJ ONLY IF YOU WANT RELIABILITY. ITS HOW THE GUN WAS DESIGNED. LAKE CITY AMMO IF POSSIBLE. STORE A MINIMUM OF 1000 RDS AND KEEP A FEW HUNDRED FOR PRACTICE AND READINESS. FACE IT,IF YOU DONT HAVE AMPLE MAGS AND AMMUNITION,YOU GOT YOURSELF A EXPENSIVE PAPERWEIGHT..GREAT GUN.

                • A:

                  There are 3 ways to mount a scope.
                  #1 Get a scope mount that replaces the rear sight(fits in the dove tail the rear sight is in)
                  #2 Drill and tap the side of teh receiver for a side mount (you will also have to releive the side of the stock for clearance)
                  #3 Get one of the aftermarket handguard replacements that has a rail on is (Ultimak) and use a red/dot or scout scope.
                  However with the 110gr Round Nose FMJ 100-150 yds is max appropriate yardage though the rear sights on some M1's claim 300 yds.

                  You can use this rifle on deer and wild boar without any problem up to 150 yds. !00 yds would be your better distance.

                • A:

                  More or less; your using a .30-.30 shell, the high end is deer, perhaps a small bear if you shoot it in the head, however you might do better with a .308. On the small end, it depends how much you want left. If you shoot a prairie dog; you probably won't have much left. You would do better with a .22. As far as I am aware; the idea is to have the least amount of suffering for the animal involved. As such, you probably should not go moose hunting with this gun. It is fine to hunt deer and smaller game. Remember, if at any point before the shot, you feel uncomfortable about the caliber of your gun in relation to the animal you are hunting; call it a day. There is always tomorrow.

                • A:

                  I wouldn't shoot it at any larger than a white-tail at no farther than 150 yds. with a definate vital zome hit. However consider this as well, M1 Carbines should only be fired with full metal jacket ammo, this means no expanding bullets. The lead round nose and Jacketed soft points in M1 carbines have been known to leave lead deposits that clog the short stroke piston design of the M1 Carbine, a moderatly trained person could fix this but a special wrench is required to remove the gas piston nut that is also staked in place. This is more of a self-defense/plinker/varminter than a true hunting rifle. Very fun to shoot and collect (my favorite in my collection) but not a big game animal gun and don't shoot it at anything remotely dangerous that could charge and maul.

                  In mine the Steel Cased ammo has been just as reliable as brass cased. Definatly buy the ammo in bulk as the gun is too fun to shoot 50 round and put away for another time, I usually go through 200-300 rounds every time I get mine out.

                  Auto Ordnance claims that this is a true remake ussing modern manufacturing techniques. Most Aftermarket accessories for the M1 Carbine say for GI milspec or Auto Ordnance as well. It is a better copy than most Universal and all Iver Johnson's have ever were in the 60's-90's.

                • A:

                  MAx effective range is about 200 yds, best range for accuracy is inside 150 yds, and some sights on the M1's have a 300 yd adjustment but the bullet drop is too great to be truely accurate at those ranges.
