The USM1 carbine is another improvement for the US army, after the Garand semi-automatic rifle. It came from the need to have a smaller and lighter weapon, which could even be used one handed. Our replica is the 1944 type (without bayonet holder).
The round has less energy than the basic rifle one, but the magazine is either a 15 or 30 round one, which will make a real difference.
Weight 2,2kg. 90cm long. Metal and wood. Breech can be manipulated, magazine is removable. A fine replica for a reenactment show.
