The Advisor: Inland Mfg ‘s M1 Carbine Pistol

    New for 2016 from Inland Manufacturing is the M1 Carbine Pistol the company is calling the Advisor model. The Advisor is based on a model that actually harkens back to the Vietnam era. At that time many in the military were customizing their M1 carbines by cutting the barrels down closer to pistol length. When possible they took bringing the gun down to size a step further with a folding stock, although that was a more difficult step to take at the time. Not only did those modifications make carrying the guns easier but it also made it far simpler to navigate the tunnel systems and engage in close quarter battles.

    The Advisor is a 12″ pistol with a parkerized finish, a modified “Paratrooper” stock, and a 1/2×28 tpi threaded barrel with a conical flash hider. This gun is chambered in .30 cal and comes with a 15-round magazine. MSRP $1150.
