M1 Carbine

Last year I picked up a mint condition M1 carbine made by Inland Division of General Motors in 1944. Today my neighbor and I ran 70 rounds of reloads through it at a local gun club. The rear sight elevation was set at 100 yards and the windage was at the center zero. We chewed up an SR-1 100 yard target. My neighbor is a recent addict to military arms and frequently asks when we can shoot some more of the old warhorses. All the best...
