NEW Inland M1 Carbine coming!

MKS Supply

The Inland name is coming back. It has nothing to do with the General Motors Division that, during WW2, made a whole tonload of M1 carbines.
But the name is back and starting soon, for about $1000 we will see three versions of the carbine. The carbine with and without the bayo lug, and the M1A1 "parachutist" version with the metal folding stock.
Do we need yet another carbine repro?
I don't know. Maybe we'll see .30 carbine ammo become more popular.

These are faithful copies of the original Inland Manufacturing carbines, right down to part construction and stampings. They even include the arsenal-stamped stock markings known as cartouches!

These carbines are so precisely copied from the original specifications that the company marks the underside of the barrel and the inside of the stock to prevent potential fraudsters from passing these new carbines as mint WWII originals. These markings also prevent potential fraudsters from using these new-production parts to "upgrade" original models (these markings are not visible unless the action is removed from the stock).
More at linked article, along with photos.

What say you guys?

I just hope the quality is there. It should be doable these days. The two carbines in the photo look very nice. Staining the wood dark is a good call, gives it that old school look.

But the problem is, you can get a GI Carbine for right about a grand. I guess they're banking on those who don't know carbines and who want a "new" looking gun.

I don't like the full stock. There's something mis-shaped in the pistol grip area. Doesn't look right.

The folder looks good. Many of the repro folders don't seem to have enough drop in the folding section (i.e., they're too straight), but this one looks pretty good.

what I would do is re-bore the thing to like a 9mm/357- like an extra long 9mm - ie 30 cal carbine case, but 9/357 front end- when I used to drive big rigs cross country , I would always pick a 'enforcer" pistol at tonys gun room in havre, about 6 mags and a case of usgi ammo- I wonder if those guns are still in the weeds around there- you can't carry internationally.

I always thought the 9mm Winchester Magnum would be a good one (I'm sure someone has done it), but I personally see nothing wrong with the .30 Carbine round. If you stoke it with the Cor Bon load that has the 100 grain Barnes X bullet, it will do most anything any .357-ish cartridge would do; within reason of course. Sure I can see that the larger bullets could be "better" but I don't see any of those rounds transforming the job of the carbine. I mean, I'd take a deer out to 150 yards with the 100gr Barnes X in .30 Carbine, and I'd do the same with a 9mm Magnum. But I wouldn't actually seek out any larger game with either cartridge. And while there's a measurable difference in the two cartridges, I doubt the deer would ever know.

On the surface you'd think that the 9mm round would give you access to more bullets, but 9mm bullets aren't really created for those kinds of velocities. So while you would have more choices, I doubt you'd be real happy with their actual performance on game. In fact, I'd bet that penetration with an 1800fps 147 grain bullet out of a 9mm mag would be considerably less than the 100 grain .30 X bullet because the 147 9mm which was intended for velocities around 1000fps would probably blow up on impact, where the smaller, lighter .30 cal bullet that was created for 1950fps would hold together perfectly.

Uh, KG? Good luck finding a 1-grand Carbine some places, even with Gunbroker et al.

The Northwet in particular is known for ridiculous inflation on firearms prices... I damn near crapped myself when my local Sportsman's Warehouse quoted $350 for a Rock Island GI-look 1911.

You find RIA's retailing for under $350 somewhere else? Wholesale is over $300.00

Maybe this will bring down the cost of 30 carbine ammo. I'd love to shoot mine more but it wears a hole in my wallet when I plink away.

RIA GI .45s were going for close to $350 around these parts ten years ago.

Just gotta reload that one...In all my years I've yet to come across what I considered "cheap" .30 Carbine. It's not hard to reload...you have to lube cases even with carbide dies, so Hornady One Shot is your friend. Then pick out a suitable powder like 296/H110 (I settled on AA#9 which gave me more rounds per pound than 296/H110), and the next most important step is cartridge overall length. The Carbine likes the overall length to be pretty close to GI. Do that, and it's a joy of a round to load and you can begin to enjoy your carbine a little more.

Easiest round to reload in my opinion and being straight case many reloads and I use IMR4227.KG what how many grains on the AA#9?

I don't have my load book in front of me, but I wanna say it was in the neighborhood of 12.5grains. It gave me most of the performance of 296 or 4227 but did so with less powder, that's why I went with it; pure economics. For pure performance 4227 is the powder to go with.

So I guess that shows why a $1000 new-prod Carbine isn't necessarily such a high price for what you get where I sit... the Kahr AO para runs about $850-900 even when you use Davidson's "Gun Genie" feature (shelf prices higher still) and the norm for GI's around here as far as I've seen is considerably higher.

Of course, that also means the Inland's street price here is going to be jacked up proportionally...
