I actually committed to this purchase on June 6th

Saginaw made M1 Carbine (.30 caliber). Iím pretty sure itís been through an Armory for the Korea era (maybe Vietnam as well), but it is GI correct, just not WWII correct. SN has it made in 1943 (maybe the summer)

Beautiful, I just helped my friend purchase an inland carbine. RRA marking on the stock and a 44 barrel. Looking forward to see how his shoots. Having never handled an m1 before, I love how small and maneuverable they are. Congrats on the purchase!

Yep, i reload. So it's going to be another $100 in a die set and shell plate. Then I can reload 100 for under $20. It's a pistol round, so I don't have to resize and lube the cases

I think you will. It's a tapered case, and even if it wasn't you'd have to resize otherwise the bullet will fall out.

M1 Carbines are the perfect CA rifle. 30 carbine isn't that bad its about the same as 223. Out of all my toys my "War Baby" gets the most "nice rifle" remarks at the range especially from the old folks.

i have a saginaw as well and the thing shoots great. Only thing i had to do was tear the bolt down and get the rest of the cosmoline cleaned out. Enjoy it, i sure do

Of the WWII era long guns that are not NFA, it is the one I most lust after the most.

The M1 is an awesome rifle but its not even close to a .223.

I meant length wise, the dies will compress it back down to correct diameter.

I think he meant the price of ammunition.

How about a $50 Saginaw S'G' M1 Carbine with correct Carry case. Bought this back in 1971. Hasn't been shot in at least 30 years. Once I found out what the I-P marked parts meant in this carbine (it's a "transition" carbine) went into retiremement. Irwin-Peterson couldn't fullfill it's WW2 Carbine contract so General Motors took it over. That's why it has the mixed parts,
Saginaw S'G' (Saginaw Gear) finished using the I-P parts when they started thier run of Carbines OR so I've been told anyway. I shoot my Inland though, it has the adjustible sights, fun and handy little carbine.
