Auto-Ordnance M1 Carbines Shipping

By Frank HarrisKahr Arms of Worcester, Massachusetts, is now shipping the AOM160 Auto-Ordnance M1 Carbine, a .30 caliber rifle with a black polymer folding stock and metal perforated handguard.
The Auto-Ordnance division of Kahr Arms began production of an M1 Carbine replica in 2005. The Auto-Ordnance AOM160 retails for $792.
The overall length is 36.5 inches and a compact 27.5inches when folded. The AOM160 has a post front sight, flip style rear sight and includes one 15 round shot stick magazine. The Auto-Ordnance AOM160 weighs 5 pounds.
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.
The M1 Carbine came into popularity during WWII, offering troops a better defensive weapon than a pistol or submachine gun, with great accuracy and range but without the recoil or weight of a full-power infantry rifle.

I hope their quality has improved in the last 2 years. My brother bought a new AO 2 years ago and after 3 trips back to AO for repair, our buddies at Tomball Pawn (shameless plug for a great gun store) let him have an Underwood WW2 carbine for the same price. That old girls just shoots and shoots and currently resides in my gun safe as my brother went on to an IBM carbine.

CMP has some M1 Carbines going on sale in about a week. I bought an Inland from them, and it worked well. Can't go wrong with USGI.
