    I picked up a few 30-round magazines for a '43 Inland M1 Carbine... the mags are commercially produced, marked 'M2'. I ran them and found that 1 out of every five or so rounds would fail to feed... getting hung up under the chamber, stopping the bolt. After some close examination, I noticed...

    An warning for all you M1 Carbine shooters! If you run across surplus ammo marked "LC 52" avoid it like the plague. Its actually Chinese berdan primed corrosive ammo make during the Vietnam war to resupply VC fielding captured M1/M2 Carbines, and is even now making the rounds of the gunshow...

    The M1 carbine, was developed as a weapon to be issued to support troops. Truck drivers, heavy equipment operators, medics and such... It was designed to be more powerful than the handgun cartridges of the day, compact, lightweight and useful to those who also needed to be armed and yet have...
