Deactivated M1 Carbine. Rare, Japanese Howa production in very good, original deactivated condition, with Thai Police Crest, with moving cocking handle (under spring pressure), trigger, and safety. These were supplied to the Thais between 1967 and 1976. The M1 Carbine was designed by Winchester and after successful trials entered service in late 1941. Everyone seems to like this small weapon, but everyone talks about its lack of stopping power. Let’s be clear; the .30 carbine round has the same stopping power as a 357 magnum. It is more powerful than a .45 ACP, but people tend to overlook this. It also has much greater range and they were quite accurate. Nevertheless, it is one of the all-time classics from WWII and they were still being issued to LRRP teams in Vietnam. Deactivated with full working action, cocks, and dry fires. All deactivated weapons sold by Colchester Militaria are deactivated in the United Kingdom and hold London or Birmingham proof marks and a certificate stating that the weapon has been deactivated correctly.
This particular one pictured has now sold but we have others still in stock and available. DEACTIVATED to current EU 2018/337 Specification, with moving parts but non dry-firing, complete with EU/UK Certificate.
Note: SLING NOT INCLUDED
