    INLAND M1/2 CARBINE SELECT FIRE

    Saw this for sale online at a Australian gunshop, I guess their firearm laws are not as completely bad as we think if some people with the right licence can still buy and own operational select fire guns complete with full cap mags -




    INLAND M1/2 CARBINE SELECT FIRE


    WW2 US Inland M1 Carbine with select fire semi-auto/auto. In good to very good condition. Comes with original sling, oil bottle, ammo pouch, 2x 30round mags & 1x 15round magazine. Works and functions as it should. Highly collectable and you don't see these available too often. Dealers only! Buyer to pay $150 postage Australia wide, which also includes full insurance.(code: 0085). Please text or email rather than phone.

    An M2 is called a Category R/E firearm in Australia. Possession of said firearms is regulated by the assorted Australian States and territories. Same as here, if you have the licence, you're fine.
    OzGunSales.com is online only. The actual seller is in Melbourne and they want $3200 AUD for it. That's $2,910.91Cdn. Somebody needs to tell 'em the mag pouch doesn't belong on the stock.

    Says who? My 1944 Inland M1 has it on the stock. Many pictures of M1 carbine being used in WW2 with it on. Saying they're wrong?

    I'll add to those pictures. Courtesy of American Rifleman. Ironically they just covered this in the August issue https://www.americanrifleman.org/art...rbine-pouches/



    Q: I recently started collecting U.S. M1 carbines and accessories and have a question regarding a magazine stock pouch I purchased at a gun show. The pouch has a metal snap inside of the portion that fits over the stock. The snap seems to have no purpose and I am wondering what it was for.

    A: Actually, the pouch to which you refer was not originally designed, nor intended, to be attached to the stock. The M1 carbine was conceived and designed to give military personnel, who would otherwise be armed with handguns, an arm with greater range and accuracy than a pistol. Since it was envisioned that the carbine would take the place of the .45-cal. pistol in such instances, the magazine pouch designed for the new gun was to be carried on the standard pistol belt. The metal snap on back of the pouch would mate with the fastener on the pistol belt that was intended for use with the pistol magazine pouch. It was soon discovered by enterprising G.I.s that the pouch could be attached to the stock and provided a ready means to carry two extra 15-round magazines on the carbine at all times. This became a rather common practice, as evidenced by numerous World War II-era photos depicting the use of such pouches in all theaters of the war. A similar pouch, having two narrow belt loops rather than the single wide loop and pistol belt snap, began to be issued later in the war. This pouch would not fit on the carbine stock, but large numbers of the earlier pouches remained in use through the end of the conflict. --Bruce N. Canfield


    Early M1 carbine magazine pouches (l.) had metal snaps on their backs for fastening to a pistol belt. The later pouch had two narrow belt loops (ctr.).

    I have a olongapo outfitters made one on mine, one of their last snap button ones, great quality but they stopped shipping to Canada.
