Inland Teasing Micro-EBR M1-Based .30 Carbine Pistol

Inland Manufacturing is showing off their next big pistol — a mini Enhanced Battle Rifle. Called the M30-P, the gun is an M1 pistol with a Sage EBR chassis and Gear Head Tailhook arm brace assembly.

Inland is one of the first companies to release a product with Gear Head’s upcoming Tailhook Mod 2 pistol brace. The brace isn’t the only new hotness with this kit; the M30-P also comes with a custom .30 Carbine EBR chassis by Sage International.

Sage put together an updated, lighter weight EBR chassis for Inland. Unlike their original M1 EBR chassis, the Inland model does not extend over the top of the action. This lets shooters use the standard M1 rear sight and it doesn’t cover the ejection port which makes clearing malfunctions that much easier.

The chassis has a rail for accessories including red dot sights and long eye relief scopes for longer-range shooting. Combined with the brace it should make putting lead down range a breeze.

Right now Inland is just showing off their new product. Expect to see these in 2018, hopefully at the top of the year. The real wait is for the highly-anticipated Tailhook Mod 2 brace.

Head Down uses an innovative stiff polymer brace that folds open to form a hook. You put your forearm over the hook for supported one-hand shooting. The hook folds shut and locks in place when not needed.

The main difference between the Tailhook Mod 1 and Mod 2 brace is that the Mod 2 uses a special pistol buffer tube and telescopes like a stock. This makes it adjustable in the field and gives it the look of a real buttstock without the NFA hassle.

The M30-P has a 12-inch barrel and an overall length of 30 inches. With the EBR chassis and brace this M1 is still fairly light at 5.5 pounds. The brace assembly is removable and without it, it measures in at just over 20 inches and weighs a pound less.

The barrel has 1/2×28 threads for use with a wide range of muzzle accessories. Bear in mind that it can’t be used with .22-caliber muzzle devices. Make sure you only install muzzle devices that are safe to use with the .30 Carbine’s 7.62mm bullets.

To make things simple the M30-1 ships with a compact 10-round magazine. It does accept all standard and higher-capacity M1 Carbine magazines.

The suggested retail price for the M30-P is $1,699 — which is actually pretty good. By itself, the Sage chassis runs $795 and the MSRP on the Tailhook Mod 2 assembly is $199. Real-world prices will probably be under $1,500 for the complete package.

    I don’t see much use unless your just into tactical. The pistol weighs as much as the carbine, 30 cal pistol are notorious for extreme flash and bang. With modern soft point or defense ammo the M1 carbine will get the job done. It also like having a wood stock, back in the day I stopped a deadly force encounter with the butt of a shotgun, saved a lot of paperwork. My M1 carbine is much more fun to shoot then my AR. The only problem is finding the brass and it is a little more demanding to reload, due to how it head spaces.
