A:Yes, there are scope mounts out there.Answered on 1/6/2011 by fur trapper from minnesota
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.Answered on 2/17/2011 by Redkelt from Bullard, TX
Q:hw big of an animal can i take with this gun? how small of an animal can i take?Asked on 1/8/2010 by Anonymous
A:You can use this rifle on deer and wild boar without any problem up to 150 yds. !00 yds would be your better distance.Answered on 1/7/2011 by guitar woodrat from Cumberland Gap, Tn
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.Answered on 2/7/2011 by Scott from Kansas
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.Answered on 2/17/2011 by Redkelt from Bullard, TX
Q:what type of ammo should i use for this gun. and how much should the bullet weigh?Asked on 1/8/2010 by Anonymous
A:.30 cal. carbine ammo
110 GR. FMJ
any brand that is your favorite or any affordable brand.Answered on 5/8/2010 by Dano from Indiana
A:110 grn. FMJ Only.
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.Answered on 2/17/2011 by Redkelt from Bullard, TX
Q:is this carbine based on the original specs of the m1 .30 carbine?Asked on 12/19/2009 by Anonymous
A: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.Answered on 2/17/2011 by redkelt from Bullard, TX
Q:can i use this on varmint at 100yards or less/Asked on 12/15/2009 by Anonymous
A:Yes this gun works well on varmints at that rangeAnswered on 12/31/2009 by rigetop from Missouri
Q:what is the range of this weapon?Asked on 12/12/2009 by George from NJ
A:This is a real good brush gun for ranges 100 yards and under I have taken several deer with this gun Now I use it for training youth hunters during youth hunths because of the lite recoilAnswered on 12/31/2009 by rigetop from MIssouri
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.Answered on 2/17/2011 by redkelt from Bullard, TX
