Why the Auto-Ordnance M1 Carbine Owned the Battlefield



The M1 Carbine has a storied legacy of service, in the hands of American soldiers who carried these rifles into harm’s way. During WWII, the M1 Carbine proved its worth on battlefields from Europe to the Pacific. Millions of light, handy M1 Carbines were used by American forces to achieve victory. For many Americans, ownership of these rifles became a family tradition, symbolizing service in the defense of liberty, and the American way of life. Auto-Ordnance is proud to continue this heritage with its line of high quality, American made, reproduction M1 Carbines. Owning one truly represents the opportunity to own a piece of American history.

The Auto-Ordnance M1 .30 Caliber carbine is produced in Kahr’s state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Worcester, MA. All Auto-Ordnance carbines are produced using newly manufactured parts on high precision computerized machinery.

Each Auto-Ordnance M1 Carbine is a faithful reproduction of the famous military rifles that served American forces beginning in World War II. Each rifle has a Parkerized finish, American Walnut stock, 15 round magazine (10 rounds where required by law), 18” barrel, and flip-style rear sight. Our “Paratrooper” model has a folding metal stock, and wood pistol grip.

Markings include the following: Auto-Ordnance, Worcester, MA behind the rear sight; U.S. Carbine, Cal. 30 ML on the receiver in front of the bolt; and the serial number is engraved on the left side of the receiver. MSRP $1271-1395; visit
