Tactical M1 Carbine? The Inland M30-P Pistol and Brace

In this episode of TFBTV, James Reeves looks at the Inland Manufacturing M30P – a “Tactical M1 Carbine”. While the M1 Carbine is roughly 90 years old, the M30P takes the proven M1 Carbine design and wraps it in the invincible Sage EBR chassis, which allows for easy optic and accessory mounting while free-floating the barrel. This version – the M30P – is legally a pistol as it uses a 12″ barrel (which is threaded in 1/2″x28″) and it is equipped with a Gearhead Works Tailhook.

The folks at Silencer Shop and Bowers were kind enough to send along a Bowers VERS 9S for use as a suppressor in this video, and it performed perfectly in that role.

So while this design is well thought out and very attractive, with an MSRP of over $1,700, is it worth it? See for yourself today on TFBTV.

Details From Inland:

“The new Inland M30 Series is a collaboration between Inland Manufacturing and Sage International, Ltd. best known for their innovative EBR (Enhanced Battle Rifle) systems that are being used by military forces worldwide. Sage Enhanced Battle Rifle stock systems are precision machined from a solid billet of high strength aircraft grade aluminum and are finished with mil-spec hard anodizing.

The EBR system increases accuracy and reliability, reduces perceived recoil, provides ambidextrous sling mounts and multiple Picatinny rails for mounting optics and accessories.

The M30-P is the Pistol variant of the new M30 series that includes the Gearhead Mod-2 Pistol Arm Brace”

    Can I get the rails and wood? I'm a terribly simple man.

    working mechanism of this rifle was so simple.

      @La Bicicleta At least the video uses the period-accurate-for-WW2 original and not the anachronism-filled post-WW2 version.
