Iver Johnson M1 Carbine
Had a class with a young man tonight who brought an Iver M1 carbine, matte stainless finish with a black plastic folding stock. Got it from a relative who bought it some 30 years ago, apparently never fired. Does anyone have experience with this weapon? I couldn't figure out if it was reconditioned or a full-on repro. He didn't know too much about it. It was in perfect shape and functioned flawless until the magazine baseplate slid out of the bottom. We put it back together and it carried on without a hitch. Very accurate too. He was shooting 5 inch groups at 25 yards with the stock ghost rings. I've come across plenty of carbines, but none like this. Any insight on this carbine would be appreciated, take care guys.
