Re: M2 carbines
I've had a few M2's over the years, the last was one

Depending on whether you purchase an actual M2 or
an M2 Trigger Pack conversion is where some differences
can vary such as, usually (in my experience) an original M2
will run flawlessly, where as, conversion Trigger Packs are
fine as far as their part in running goes, if a coversion M2
Trigger Pack is installed into an M1 Carbine (with M2 Stock)
be sure to polish the feed ramp, or at least smooth it as best
you can by hand with a decent abrasive, and it should run fine.
As for the accuracy / controlability part, although it is a short
to (maximum) medium range caliber, it still will require a bit of
practice to bring it to where you're hitting your designated area.
Keep it lube'd with synthethic cleaner/lube (if possible) such as
what I've considerd the best (as have the most elite) over
the years *EEZOX Premium Synthetic Gun Care* which is a true
all in one gun care formula, I speak from personal experience as
