WE M1 Carbine

Recommended Posts

Does WE do plastic wood?

 

Here is it for sale, not in Europe.

Brand is "Air Venturi", upon examination of their other products it looks to be KWC.   Though on the receiver it shows to be made in China, not Taiwan.

But then again, it could just be rebranded King Arms, as King Arms are the only manufacturer that makes the M1 Carbine.

Just my initial thoughts without doing any research, that just seems like a type-o or misrepresentation of the product. I know WE's product catalog pretty well and have never seen or heard of them doing an M1 Carbine.

Marushin M1 carbine isn't that bad really.  Sure mags don't fit modern pouches and doesn't click on empty, but its plenty accurate and more than skirmishable if you use ALICE webbing.

It’s not WE for sure, my bet is also KWC thanks to both versions... should study the one at IWA a bit more.

But wish it was WE, just for the click and right sized mags.

Please someone tell them to remove the flipping bayonet lugs. They didn't exist until well after WWII.

BTW this looks exactly the same as the ASG which was a copy of the Marushin. Both were very fragile in my experience - unless you could track down some (rare as hens teeth) steel parts.

Mine was fitted into a gorgeous 1943 Springfield marked genuine wood stock but was only really usable in milsim WWII games.

Just hacksaw the front off and you get a perfectly fine type 2 barrel band. It's the rear sight that's a harder operation needing to grind and file a dovetail to take a real one.

Which parts would break?

 

Seen the bolt on the 8mm version crack but doesn't seem to have the same issue on the 6mm.

Bolt - pot metal and we had a couple crack back in the day.
