So I visit my Curmudgeon and we get to it with Suzi (M1 Carbine) at a super secret testing facility. I was stunned to see him take right to it with Appleseed worthy sling skills. He also took advantage of something to lean on. It seems that he has done this before! Looks like this:
We have a small problem though. Ocassionaly the bolt will be to the rear and will not feed a new round into the chamber. I dont know where the magazine came from that came with it, and magazines for active service were considered disposable I am told. Got two from the Interwebs and even with new rifle springs and a complete Bolt assembly it still does the same thing. So, try different magazines first.
This arrived today. I will get a chance to try it out either before or after my new shooter class on Saturday or at lunch during my Concealed Carry class on Sunday (Fathers Day people!)
It also appeared to be a slow news day in nearby Metropolis yesterday. Coworker today called up and said he saw me on the news last night. I don't remember any party getting out of hand here last night! Fox reran this from a year ago.
Anyone have any suggestions on the failure to feed on the M1 Carbine?
