Rail for M1

Post by RJC »

I want to mount an optic on my M1 carbine. Can someone recommend which one(s) to buy?

You want to put a scope on a real USGI $1200 carbine? Drill & tap and you got a $300 carbine. I pray it is an aftermarket. Very few would modify such an expensive rifle if it is USGI. Remember its like a 100yard rifle, sort of a long pistol. A scope might be a waste of big cash. I am 70 and poor eye sight, but can still hit the black even after a stroke. Heck, scope a nice 7mm mauser.
If its a Plainfield , Universal, or new Inland or Auto ordnance then see this https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?t ... ne.761323/

Rapidrob may have some better ideas. Send him a PM.
