Chopping the M1 Carbine to Pistol Size


Firearm-supplier MKS Supply LLC is marketing a new handgun-size version of the historic .30-caliber M1 carbine.

The Inland Manufacturing ADVISOR M1 handgun is a chopped and shortened version of the company's full-size carbine, according to a press release. The latter is identical in standard to the M1 fixed- and folding-stock firearms used in World War II, Korea and Vietnam, the release states.

"The Advisor is inspired by the field-modified chopped carbines of the Vietnam War," it states.

The new pistol features military-type sights, flash hider, and walnut stock, weighs 4.5 pounds and comes with a cloth sling and 15-round magazine (though it can accommodate both 10- and 30-round magazines). It will retail for $1,239.
