VIETNAM-ERA PARATROOPER M1 .30 Carb. (FREE SHIPPING)  Guns > Rifles > A Misc Rifles
Description: This comes with FREE ground shipping to the 48 states.

This carbine was manufactured by Plainfield Machine Co. of Dunelien, New Jersey, during the Vietnam war but was not sold to the US military. Instead, Plainfield sold to the Army of South Vietnam. American soldiers got these from South Vietnamese military and brought them back. They are great shooters.

The photograph below shows an American advisor to the Army of South Vietnam in the 1960s. This firearm is distinct and unique as shown by its forward grip. No other M1 carbine from the Vietnam-era had this grip.

Chambered in .30 Carbine, this firearm comes with two 30-round magazines. It is in good working order and the barrel is crisp and bright. The shoulder strap is manufacture-dated September 1962. The exact manufacture date of the weapon is not known.

Plainfield also manufactured full-size M1 rifles. This is different in that, instead of a stock, it is fitted with a sliding steel brace. The furniture is refinished American walnut.

Additional magazines in other sizes, including 10-round, are available.

NOTE: This weapon is NOT a copy or knock-off of the classic US M1Carbine that debuted during WWII. It is made with true US government-issued parts. Mechanically, it is the same as a GI issued M1. This carbine should not be confused with recent-issue M1 weapons that are made from stamped metal. The walnut stock and sliding steel shoulder brace are not government issue.
