War Baby! Comes Home The U.S. Calibre .30 Carbine. Vol 2

War Baby Comes Home continues the story of the U.S. Carbine. According to the Director of Military Training, eighty five percent of the troops in U.S. tactical and operational units were armed with M1 carbines by early 1945. The popularity of the carbine is further attested to by the large number of official military accessories and ancillaries which were produced in its support, as well as the numerous types of .30 cartridges developed for the carbine. The first release of surplus U.S. military carbines was not sanctioned until 1963, thus arose the phenomenon of the carbine ‘aftermarket’ The suitability of the light handy carbine for plinking and small game hunting was undeniable and popular among returning G.I.s and civilian shooters alike. Numerous entrepreneurs quickly exploited the situation by producing their own receivers, and assembling them into complete carbines using surplus G.I parts.
