    If it's a GI carbine, yes, it should (with the magazine in place).

    After the war there were a bunch of "civilian" carbines made by various manufacturers ranging in quality from "pretty good" to "hopelessly terrible". Not sure about those.

    Thank you very much: Some times a thing ever so simple can be totally mind boggling. Tom

    Tom.....as a general rule of thumb, most military semi-auto and auto weapons were designed to "hold open" after the last round is fired....and all U.S. ones did. The M1 Carbine, M1 Rifle, M1 (Thompson) submachine gun, and the M1911 pistol all do.

    In fact, the M1 (Garand) Rifle not only holds open, it even spits out it's used clip after the last round is fired.
