Straight from the pages of history... the greatest conflict of modern times, World War II... comes the new Citadel M-1 Carbine. Built to the exacting specifications of the G.I. model used by U.S. infantrymen in both WWII theaters of battle and in Korea, this reproduction rifle comes to you chambered in the fun and economical .22LR cartridge.
Used by officers as well as tankers, drivers, artillery crews, mortar crews, and other personnel in lieu of the larger heavier M-1 Garand rifle, the M-1 carbine weighed only 4.5 to 4.75 pounds. The Citadel M-1, made by Chiappa in Italy, weighs only 4.8 lbs. - nearly the exact weight of the original. Barrel length and OAL are also the same as the "United States Carbine, Caliber .30, M-1", its official military designation.
This carbine features: Semi-automatic, bolt locking blowback system; adjustable rear sight; fixed front sight; rifling: 6 grooves - rate of twist 1:16; wood stock; 18" barrel length; 35" OAL; 10 round magazine. Also available in black synthetic.
