New from Inland Manufacturing, manufacturers of various M1 Carbine and M1911 reproductions, is an M1 “Carbine” that’s most certainly anything but historically-accurate. An even larger departure from tradition than suppressor-ready M1 Scout we recently reviewed. This legally-a-pistol .30 Carbine sports an AR grip, Sage EBR chassis, threaded 12″ barrel, and a Gear Head Works Tailhook brace. Press release follows . . .
New .30 Caliber Pistol for 2018
MKS Supply, Inc., Dayton, OH, October, 2017 – Inland Manufacturing, makers of the incredibly popular Inland series of M1Carbines, debuts its new .30 caliber carbine pistol.
Inland’s new M30-P pistol with Gear Head Mod II Tail Hook Arm Brace is a highly modified version of Inland’s popular full size .30 caliber carbine. It is fitted into a special Sage Enhanced Battle Rifle tactical carbine stock, and comes with a Gear Head Works Mod II Arm Brace, Ergo Sure Grip pistol grip, and handy (1/2×28 tpi threaded) 12-inch barrel.
The Sage EBR M30-P chassis*1 is specially designed for this Inland pistol and when combined with the Mod II Tail Hook Arm Brace (fits the forearm, it is not a shoulder stock) makes effective one-hand shooting a breeze. The easily removable arm brace is incredibly quick to employ for a firm, positive fit for either right or left hand use.
Inland’s 12-inch barrel delivers excellent ballistics, especially with today’s modern ammunition. Each M30-P is shipped with one 10-round magazine and, like all Inland .30 caliber carbines and pistols, the magazine catch fits higher-capacity military and civilian magazines.*2
These features combine to make the Inland M30-P pistol a highly efficient, compact, robust, and accurate system.
