    You can't miss with this!!
    I am in LOVE with this gun. As another reviewer mentioned, this is a sexy little gun, but I hit the target on the first shot "out of the box"! My eye sight and old man hands don't let me sit there and measure a... 3,4,or 5 inch grouping, so for me the sound of a metal target "ping" is my reward and I heard it almost every time I pulled the trigger. more

    What's The fuss About?
    So I bought this Carbine a while ago (almost a year ago) and can say that it shoots fine despite the reveiws. It does use a lot of lube to keep the slider moving without hesitation but everything about it is worth it. Fr...om how the stock feels to the point you release the slider and hear that Clunk of the gun your having fun. This is really enjoyable to shoot and wouldn't trade it in for the world more

    Sling Fit
    After buying my M-1 Carbine, I couldn't attach the sling because both the oiler with sling were too thick to fit in the slot in the stock. I bought a black tension pin, 1/4" wide and 2 1/2" long to replace the ...oiler. I don't have an oiler in the stock now, but the sling fits great. more

    My New M1 Carbine from Auto-Ordnance
    I ordered the Auto-Ordnance M1 Carbine online on Thursday night. Cabelas notified me on Friday the rifle was ready for pick-up. Great Job Cabelas! The rifle has a beautiflul medium colored walnut stock and very nice fit ...and trim. I field stripped the rifle and found it to be clean but a little dry. I wiped in a thin coat of oil and applied a dab or two of moly grease on a few places on the bolt and rails. I noticed the feed ramp was highly polished. The rifle's action was much smoother after lubricating. The rifle performed flawlessly at the range. No jams, no failures to feed, no stoppages of any kind. Well done Auto-Ordnance! This rifle is FUN to shoot! more

    Oiler and sling issue
    The opening for the oiler in the stock is 1/16 smaller than on my GI M1 Carbine and the sling that came with the rifle was much thicker than the one on my GI M1 Carbine so the oiler would not fit. I ordered a sling and o...iler that matched the one on the GI M1 Carbine. This did not fit either but then I noticed the oiler that came with the Auto-Ordnance was about 1/32 smaller than the GI issue. so by using it along with the thinner sling I was able to make the oiler and sling fit even if it snugger than it should be I can live with it. Since I got it on sale for $250 less than list price I guess I am satisfied even though I'm disappointed that they didn't use more care in selecting parts and matching measurements. more

    Few bugs, easy fix
    Like most who have purchased this firearm I ran into numerous feed issues from the outset. I figured I'd run around 150 rounds through it and see what happened. By the time I got through the 150 the feed problems were cu...t in half. Encouraged by these results I simply field stripped the rifle and did a bit of judicious polishing of internals with a dremel tool and some fine lapping compound. Next trip to range zero problems , one factory mag, one after market non-GI mag, two separate brands ammunition. I'll give this thing 4 stars simply because it really shouldn't be necessary for the end user to do much if anything to make a brand new rifle at this price point run. I also had difficulty getting the oiler and sling inserted in its slot in butt stock. Again, a bit of judicious inletting by dremel tool and sanding drum solved the issue and if done properly is pretty much invisible. more

    Auto Ord. M-1 Carbine
    I don't put blame on Cabela's for this disaster called a firearm.5 different ammo, 4 different magazines, gun would not feed, extract, or eject reliably, and it was firing out of battery, slide not fully locked. In addit...ion to that, there was damage,(cosmetic) on the wood stock. I accepted the damage on the stock for some ammo, thank you Cabela's.I find it hard to believe in today's world, a company can put something on the market like this.Cabela's was kind enough to refund me my money, rather than me having to deal with manufacturer.I had lots of video and pictures, which I gave to Cabela's to send to Auto Ord.. more

    GOTTA GET TO KNOW IT BETTER...
    I have this rifle now for about 7 months and have put thru it about 600 rds...At first it would fail to feed properly about every other rd. but after about 150 rds. it works excellent with all FACTORY loads. If there are... any failures it is now with my reloads. The mag it comes with works great. And I had a few GI mags 15 & 30 rds. which work well too. Also, the parts are not always interchangeable with GI parts. I managed to update/replace the rear sight with the later GI adjustable one & add on a bayonet lug to barrel- both involved much effort in pounding in the new sight and heavy sanding down of the front handguard to accept the new bayonet lug on barrel. But it was worth the effort, now the gun is a beauty and quite reliable if fed factory ammo, even soft points. A keeper. more

    why 3 stars? Average***
    first off... it is a sexy gun do not get me wrong, but the oiler it came with did not fit the gun with the sling. I literally had to make my own piece to fit in for the sling. When i went to shoot the gun the first time ...it was perfect but as i used a variety of ammo it did not wanna work so well so the gun is sorta picky on the ammo you use but, other than that very nice gun i love it hope to get more magazines for it and ammo more

    The gun has been 100% reliable, once I tossed the magazine they gave me in the garbage and use military mags. Light recoil so my wife likes shooting it. Anyone who is thinking about interchanging parts from WW2 M1 Carbin...es on this will be disappointed. Most parts do NOT fit. Small parts like sights probably will, though. more

    The gun is beautiful. The wood has a very beautiful grain in the walnut stock. I fired a few rounds without any problems. Hoping to sight it in soon. Thanks SG

    After buying an Auto Ordinance 1927A1 Thompson and being very pleased, I thought I would try the M1 carbine. Glad I did. It looks like it could have been built in 1943 and never issued. After market mags fit and work fin...e. If you intend to hunt with it, look for the PPU SP ammo. more

    Ordered this carbine from the guide and received at my FFL in less than 5 days. Went to the club on Sunday and fired it with 3 different types of ammo, UMC Ball, Win. HP and PPU soft points, functioned well with all 3, s...ome failures to eject fully with the UMC. Excellent fit and finish, I was really pleased with the quality of the wood and metal finishes on this rifle. Accuracy at 50ft, 25 and 50 yds was very good, even with open sights and aging eyes. Overall an excellent product and service from SG. more

    I am very happy to purchase this carbine. I have compared it to my WWII M1 and the finish is very similar. Functions great. I replaced the rear sight right away as this old style version is a bit of a pain. There are ple...nty of aftermarkets that tap right on. As stated in other review, the picture (currently) is not the same as the one you get. But if you want the vented handguard they are available for cheap. I never buy a gun based on the pics on retailer's website. Always look up the model number on manufacturer's website. No other way to verify. more

    Ordered this carbine on a Sunday evening and it was at my FFL Wednesday morning!!!!! Does not come with a sling/oiler. Arrived with one 15 round magazine. Make sure you watch the type of magazines you buy. Taiwan militar...y .30 round magazines DO NOT FIT! Magazine release is very stiff and difficult to work but should work itself out over time. Carbine is very light but seems to be put together well. Fantastic service from the Guide!!!!! more

    I wrote an earlier review stating what SG had pictured was not the weapon they were selling and, it was not. However, they have corrected that now and the picture does reflect the actual rifle SG is selling. Since I post...ed the negative review on SG showing one thing and selling another it is only right for me to post a review that reflects on the actual weapon that is pictured and being sold. I am still sick over not receiving what I thought I was buying but it is what it is. As far as this actual weapon goes I have a mixed review with it being mostly positive. AO is not known for the greatest fit and finish and you should not expect the kind of fit and finish you would receive on a Springfield, M1A (which is awesome) for example. The barrel on my carbine is off cant of the fore grip. But it is in line with the receiver so while esthetically off some the actual site picture and firing are right on and fine. If you buy a sling with oiler you will find the oiler does not fit very well as the slot is too small. I was able to take care of this using a small armorers rubber mallet and got it into place. Getting it out? Who knows but, I think with time it may all loosen up some. The receiver is cast and you will see casting marks on close inspection. That about ends all the bad. AO claims you can strip this weapon with only a screwdriver. That is not 100% correct. If you want to take down the trigger housing (and you will for proper cleaning) you will need a small punch. That is not a really big deal and the fact is with the screwdriver and punch, you have it done. Function is where it gets better. I read quite a few (positive) reviews that warned this weapon requited some break -in and if you had failure to feed and or eject problems this would work itself out after a couple hundred rounds. I could live with this because I have owned many high dollar semi's that took 200 - 250 round of ball before they broke-in and ran smoothly. This is where I was most pleased.When I first got the weapon I purchase a few hundred rounds of Armscor ball ammo to go with it. I have had problems with this particular ammo in other weapons (especially lower costing weapons) in the past. So, when I went to the range with 100 rounds of this ammo, in a brand new weapon with brand new magazines I was expecting a failure now and then. It did not happen! This carbine ate, fired, and spit out every single round with no issues. Bottom line is the weapon functions as it should and is very enjoyable to fire. Accuracy (at 50 yards) was acceptable especially o this low cost ammo through a brand new weapon. I expect that accuracy to improve after a couple hundred more rounds and with better ammo. All in all this is a good weapon all around as long as you are not expecting the fit and finish of a finer gun maker. I find it a little pricy considering the level of fit and finish and I would place the as better in the $500 range. However, if you want a new M1 Carbine that works, this one does. more
