[su_dropcap style=”light” size=”4″]I[/su_dropcap]nland Manufacturing has just announced their new and fascinating pistol. It’s an M1, it’s a carbine and it’s a pistol, but we will have to wait until March 2016 to have one of our very own.
The new “Advisor,” Inland’s M1 pistol, features many of the same characteristics of their original carbines and is modeled after the modified M1 carbines that were a popular conversion made by US Military advisors during the Vietnam Era. These “Military Advisors” found that the compact and reliable M1 carbine could be made even more suitable for their specific missions by cutting the barrels down to pistol lengths and using either a cut down standard stock or the M1A1 folding stock – the folder was the stock of choice if they could get their hands on one.
These modified M1 carbines were favored by the US Military Advisors as well as the Tunnel Rats tasked with clearing the matrix of tunnels and engaging in extreme close quarters.
The new 2016 Inland Advisor features a 12-inch barrel with a type two barrel band, adjustable rear sights, push-button safety, round bolt and a low-wood walnut stock modified M1A1 stock – minus the wire portion of the stock – making the Advisor a legal pistol.
This pistol includes a 15-round magazine and uses a 30-round magazine catch to allow high capacity magazines. The flash hider is conical and threaded ½ x 28 tpi allowing any accessory with he same threading. The modifications to the M1A1 stock still allows the user to reattach the wire portion of the stock, however NFA rules would then apply. ASJ
