    Question Norinco M1 carbine, is it possible?

    I was wondering recently if it was possible for Norinco to make some M1 Carbine clone in .30 cal* with a non-res barrel? Would any ppl in the CGN community be intersted?

    I'll take an M1 Carbine in 30-30. Build it and I will come for one, maybe two!

    The M1 Carbine was a short (hence Carbine) Semi-Automatic Rifle that fired the .30 Carbine (Metric 7.62x33) rimless cartridge. I believe the M1 Carbine was the only rifle ever produced that chambered this cartridge.
    The 30-30 you mention, is the 30-30 Winchester Rimmed cartridge, produced initially in the Winchester Model 94 Lever Action Rifle, and other subsequent Lever actions. There was also a Pump Action Rifle. As far as I know, no manufacturer has ever attempted to produce a Semi-Automatic Rifle that would chamber the 30-30.
    Norinco would never produce an M1 Carbine in 30-30, however they may be convinced to re-produce the M1 Carbine with a 19" barrel so it is non-restricted in Canada, and legal in certain American States.
    Perhaps one day, we can convince the "Antis", that we are the "Backbone of Canadian Society", and not the Enemy.

    No get out with your ideas! My M1 is my only retirement savings, and currently has a better interest rate going for it than my savings account!

    But if they import a ton of them, at a good price I'll buy another I guess

    Not to worry.
    I remember when the Russian capture k98 rifles "flooded" the market, everyone predicted the prices would drop. Never happened, just made everyone want one that much more
