About the Gun

This pistol whose action is based on John Browning’s tilting barrel locking system is one of the first semi-autos chambered for the .30 Carbine cartridge. The magazine release button is located on the left side of the frame just behind the trigger. The slide mounted safety simply blocks the firing pin whether the gun is cocked or not and does not lock the trigger.

About the Cartridge

This cartridge was developed just prior to WWII for the military to use in its newly selected Winchester semi-automatic 30 M1 carbine. It is basically a modification of the Winchester 32 Self-Loading round of 1906. It is considered in the same class as the 32-20 WCF round with an effective range of about 150 yards.
