Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Universal M1 Carbine -- .30 M1 Carbine Semi auto Rifle

LSB#: 120807JP01

Make: Universal Carbine

Model: M1 .30 Carbine

Serial Number: 46149

Year of Manufacture: Modern

Caliber: .30 Carbine

Action Type: Semi-Auto Carbine , Removable Magazine

Markings: The top of the receiver is stamped, “U.S. Carbine / Cal. .30 M 1. / Universal / Hialeah, Fla.”. The serial number “46149” is stamped on the rear of the receiver, under the rear sight.

Barrel Length: 18”.

Sights / Optics: This rifle is mounted with a protected blade front sight and a windage / elevation adjustable rear peep sight.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The stocks are lightly varnished wood. The wood looks almost new, with scattered dings primarily on the left side. The butt plate has rusted heavily (apparently just a storage problem) and this is the only instance of rust on the rifle. The rust has darkened the wood a bit at the buttplate. The LOP measures 13 1/4". The stocks rate in about Excellent overall condition.

Type of Finish: Blue

Finish Originality: Factory Original

Bore Condition: The bore is shiny and the rifling is sharp. There is no erosion.

Overall Condition: This rifle retains about 98% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows little, if any use. There is only the slightest bit of edge wear and scattered surface marking, primarily to the right rail of the receiver. This rifle was very rarely shot and was carefully stored (except for the buttplate). The Screw heads are sharp. The markings are clear. Overall, this rifle rates in about Fine - Excellent condition (Fine only because of the buttplate).

Mechanics: The action functions correctly; the bolt retracts easily, and the trigger trips the hammer. We did not fire this gun.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None. No magazine is provided.

Our Assessment: The M1 Carbine is one of the most widely produced and employed weapons systems since the Second World War, and with good reason! Light, handy, easy to employ, firing a cartridge with modest recoil, but sufficient to perform acceptably at modest ranges, it is easy to see why it is so popular. After WWII and the Korean conflict, thousands of soldiers developed an appreciation for this light, handy weapon, and several commercial suppliers sprang up. Among the most noteworthy of these is Universal. Produced from 1957-1987, they became a part of the army of suppliers that fielded these nifty carbines.

These retain the same delightful handling characteristics and ballistics of their military cousins. This one appears to be almost new (save the buttplate), which will make it a real find for a bidder looking for a light, handy rifle for defense, target practice, or just plunking!

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This carbine can be transferred in California.
