The 1944 U.S. M1 Carbine with Shoulder Sling is a replica of a heavily produced weapon in United States military history. It was adopted as the primary U.S. military firearm during WWII and remained in use for 31 years. Unlike with conventional carbines, which are typically just shorter versions of their parent rifles, the M1 Carbine and the M1 Garand are two completely different firearms, as the M1 Carbine fires a different bullet. In fact, the two only share one part in common, that part being a short butt-plate screw. These differences did not stop the M1 Carbine from being a popular rifle, though, and its effectiveness was such that it lasted through the Korean War and well into the Vietnam War, before it was gradually phased out and replaced by the M16 and the M16A1. This handsome replica recreates the look of this classic rifle in stunning detail, from the rich wood-toned stock and foregrip to the blackened metal hardware, down even to the removable clip. This replica is modeled after the 1944 M1 Carbine, which differed from the first 1941 model in one small way, as the 1944 variant possessed a fully automatic firing mode. This replica also features a shoulder sling, which makes carrying this rifle a breeze, as you can just slip the sling over your shoulder and go. The rifle is crafted from quality materials and measures approximately 35.5 inches long. It is easy to see why this 1944 U.S. M1 Carbine Rifle would be popular among collectors, because it offers a chance to own and enjoy a real piece of history in the comforts of your own home!
