Weapon Background[edit]

The M1 Carbine is a .30 caliber Carbine that has been used since WW2 and is still a popular weapon amongst today's Law Enforcement/Security Forces around the world, along with civilian use, it is chambered in .30 Carbine. Due to it being a carbine, it has a shorter barrel, and length, compared to rifles used in World War II (such as the M1 Garand), thus lowering power and range significantly compared to other conventional rifles. However the M1 Carbine was used much during the war. It has been favored for its mild recoil, by soldiers and collectors alike.

M1A1 is the paratrooper model with folding stock. Came with 15 round magazine. M1A1s were produced by the Inland division of General Motors. They were made side by side with full stock M1s and stocks were sometimes replaced by producers, making it hard to find an original M1A1 with folding stock. This variant was sometimes fielded with a vertical wooden foregrip.[1]

Trivia

  • The M1A1 has an infamously bad reputation, much like the L85 and early production models of the M16. During the invasion of Sicily, the weapon got a reputation for being extremely finicky and prone to jamming and misfiring. In one famous anecdote, Colonel James M. Gavin later traded his M1A1 to a wounded Army grunt for an M1 Garand, such were his problems with the weapon. If anything, the weapon's problems became more apparent during the Korean War, when the M1A1's existing reliability problems caused the whole weapon to be called into question and a full investigation was launched.
    • Interestingly, just like the L85 and M16, the bulk of the M1A1's problems were found to come from manufacturing defects and improper maintenance procedures. Later production runs of the M1A1 featured enhanced return springs and lubricants that were less prone to fouling and freezing. The Magazines for the M1A1 were also redesigned.
      • Many problems were also found in the weapon's ammunition. Korean War veterans became infamous for the claims that the M1A1's .30 carbine round could not penetrate the winter coats worn by Chinese soldiers, and similar claims during the Vietnam War claimed that the round was incapable of penetrating a human skull. Both claims were untrue, but there was a nugget of truth to both: the M1A1's .30 caliber round was especially prone to misfiring and poorly firing, resulting in less-than-optimal performance. As was the case with most of the M1A1's problems, and indeed the M16's problems with performance, the bulk were later found to be the result of manufacturing defects.
  • While later model M1A1s purportedly have satisfactory performance, the horrendous reputation of the weapon lives on to this very day, the same way it does for the L85.
  • M1A1 is Garand's little sister, sharing a similar relationship with her that MG42 has with MG34.
    • Humorously, M1A1 shares the same artist as Garand as well.
  • M1A1's outfit is a reference to the fact that the weapon she uses is a Carbine Garand variant. Appropriately, as she is Garand's sister, she shares numerous tastes in clothing, including a beret, pleated skirt, and open jacket with blouse and a tie.
