US CARBINE M1A1 AIRBORNE NOT FIRING MODEL
Born from the specific need to equip support troops such as tank crews, mortar teams, radio operators of a less bulky and heavy weapon than the M1 Garand. In addition, the nascent airborne troops also needed a light weapon and with a precision higher than a gun they brought United States of America to bet on a rifle. It was not until October 1941 that Winchester was officially commissioned to supply the new weapon.
The M1A1 version was specially made for airborne troops providing it with a folding stock to reduce its size and facilitate its transport in launch operations. The model in use in the Second World War and in the Normandy landing operations was produced in about 150,000 by Inland and had no bayonet lock.
Replica made of metal faithful to the original, blow back, trigger, double position shutter, removable magazine, wooden body, complete with strap (not replicated) and oilier (not replicated). Made specifically for re-enactors and collectors for which no authorization or permission is required.
