*Disclaimer: Colors vary between batches. As with original military rifles, the upper handguard on the M1 Carbine varies in the dimensions and exact shape of the wood on each firearm. The groove in the top of the handguard may not be perfectly centered. As a result, when viewed in relation to the sights, it may create the appearance that the sights are not aligned straight. This is an optical illusion caused by the tilt and cut of the upper handguard. All M1 Carbine sights are properly aligned when installed at the factory.

This Auto-Ordnance M1 Carbine is very finely made. I have several WW2 Carbines and this one has super tight tolerances. Before you shoot it you must take a steel brush and scrub the feed ramp and bolt channels to smooth them out a bit. Make sure you oil the crap out of it. You still might get a few FTFs but after a break in period of about 50 rds it runs flawlessly. Because of the very tight tolerances, disassembly was tough. Hit the bolt channels again and operating slide channels with a steel brush. Oil every inch of the gun and it will run great the next time out. It is a beautiful firearm but it is old school so it needs maintenance. It will start to rust if you don't keep it oiled or keep it in an air tight safe. I always wanted one of these for my collection and now I have one. Thank you Auto-Ordnance for making this for us Gun Enthusiasts.
