    Several years ago I purchased a Universal Firearms "Vulcan" pump-action .44 Magnum carbine at a gun show. I understand it was manufactured by the same company that made Universal M-1 carbines in Florida. I have read it was made in the late 1960's for one or two years. I would like to find out more information (magazine articles, test reports, etc.) about this gun. I have only seen one or two others at gun shows I've attended.

    It may be nothing more than Urban Legend, but there were quite a number of those around this area of SC about 20 years ago, when I was heavy-into working gunshows. At that time, the story was that the guys who trained for the Cuban invasion were making these guns, as a front for them being here.

    Like I said, urban legend? Likely, but it sure makes for a good story!

    in the early days of the magazine 'gun world' (i believe 1960) they had an article titled 'cubans and carbines' the unversal vulcan was mentioned in this article along with a remodeled carbine version of the winchester 351 self-loading rifle. may be some truth to this urban legend.
