Fulton Armory Service Grade M1 Carbine 30 US Carbine

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Our test crew liked the Fulton Armory carbine the best, and some of us would have put up the extra money to get one that didn't need any extras. Others of our staff were taken aback by its cost and would take their chances with the CMP surplus guns.

The Fulton Armory had this milled-base sight. Note the serrated adjustment knob and also the adjustable plate for zeroing the windage.
We tested with three types of ball ammo, all 110 grain FMJ, which gave slightly differing results in accuracy. We really liked the Fulton carbine shown. It was the slickest, with all original G.I. parts, well matched, well fitted, and newly finished. It had no compromises other than its high cost.
