Editor’s Note:

The Auto-Ordnance M1 Carbine is a modern reproduction gun that gives consumers a chance to experience the sweet-shooting WWII classic chambered in .30 carbine without having to chase down an original copy.

Produced by Kahr Arms in Greely, PA, each Auto-Ordnance M1 Carbine is made to be a faithful reproduction of the gun that served the United States from World War II through the Vietnam War. A parkerized receiver, walnut stock, 18-inch barrel, and standard capacity 15-round magazine complete the authentic look and feel of the original.

By The Numbers - Auto Ordnance M1 Carbine

Accuracy was impressive with the iron sights and standard 110 grain ammuntion.
Our M1 carbine went 500 rounds, suffering only a single user-induced malfunction.
Most of the aftermarket is centered around stocks and optics mounts, not much else.
For a fighting carbine of the 1940s, this rifle is very ergonomic and quick to deploy, which was a shift in weaponry of the time.

final verdict

“The reproduction M1 Carbine from Auto-Ordnance is a winner in my book. Whether used as a hunting rifle, plinker, defensive carbine or truck gun, this light-weight accurate weapon will serve just about anyone well. Paired with the history and nostalgia of the weapon, any gun collection will do well having it among the ranks.” – Ken Whitmore
