Introduction: M1 Carbine

Picture of M1 Carbine

Well,I've been working on this for a while and decided that it was ready to be posted =) It shoots grey connectors and averages 40 ft. If I ever find a way to change the trigger mech that will be the first thing that I update in this as it isn't exactly sturdy. On my m1 carbine I put type one sights(Google it) and has an area for my standard red dot sight just for fun =P The reason there are no orange connectors on the bottom of the barrel is because it will reduce range and make it look unrealistic. Please comment below and leave some ideas for improvements =)

Also check out some of my other instructables.

Best M1 Carbine on the site. Could indeed use a bit of work in the chamber area, but it looks great!

Where is the pin? is it internal?

The pin is not internal,I just removed it for the pics =)

Oh ok that sort of makes sense but where would it be normally?

in the second to last pic there is a green rod that is towards the top of the grip. It is located under that =)

Oh ok I see it, but it looks as if it would interfere with your hand

sometimes it can but it generally doesn't.

Ok whatever works for ya ;)

Johnhall14 (author)Vaetheon2013-08-29

So far it shoots well,jams are mainly user error and is standard pin fired. Thanks =)

Johnhall14 (author)2013-08-29


Really not bad. It could use some small amount of work on the chamber area, but the rest is pretty boss. =D

Thanks =D

You are very much welcome.

mother of god
the best gun i've ever seen

Johnhall14 (author)Kona-chan2013-08-29

Thanks =)

Johnhall14 (author)2013-08-29

It is kinda,there are some differences in the the action and a few other places.

Johnhall14 (author)2013-08-28

Still deciding,a yugo m48 is still an option,it would take a long time to build but it is possible. The only problem with building a yugo m48 is that it is quite close to the k98 =/ Trying to come up with some other ideas =)
