The “little brother” to the Garand, they operate in fairly similar fashion but differ in how ammo is fed. Ironically South Korea also had tons of surplus M1 Carbines from the Korean War that they wanted to sell to the U.S, just like the Garands. These are permanently blocked/banned for import because of concerns that they accept high capacity magazines. Sad isn’t it? Firearms made in America can’t even come back home after serving overseas.
Civilian marksmanship program had them for a good price too.
