New: Inland M1 Scout Carbine in .30 Carbine

Inland Manufacturing has begun making a .30-caliber Scout Carbine with a black-anodized-aluminum upper handguard and Picatinny rail, so that the shooter can mount long-eye-relief scopes on the rifle. MSRP: $1,239.

Inland’s Picatinny rail also makes it possible to mount red dots, lasers, lights and other accessories. The Inland Scout Carbine also has military-type iron sights. The rail/handguard is attached to the barrel.

The Scout Carbine is chambered in .30 Carbine and is fitted with a military-style conical flash hider. The barrel thread is 1/2×28, so the flash hider may be removed to fit a suppressor or other muzzle treatment.

The American walnut stock is sprayed with a proprietary industrial textured polymer that gives it a tough black finish.

Inland’s Scout Carbine will accommodate 10-, 20-, and 30-round military magazines, and it is sold with one 15-round magazine in all states except California, where it is sold with one 10-round magazine.

The rifle weighs 5.5 pounds (without bases, rings, and scope) and has an 18-inch barrel (including flash hider). Overall length is 35.75 inches.

Current Inland carbines are serialized starting at 9,000,000 and have a definitive barrel marking to ensure they’re not confused with original U.S. military carbines built during W.W. II.

  1. What I don’t see in any write-up on the Inland Scout Carbine is if the Iron sights are usable like the original USGI Carbine. The Original had to cut a ‘trench’ in the Top Wood hand-guard to clear the sight line. Side views of the Scout seem to indicate the sight line is blocked by the Rail component.

    1. Don – From a posting on the forum:

      . 357 Magnum Rifle M.V. 1830 fps 100 yds 1427 fps 200 yds 1138 fps
      158 gr. soft point M.E. 1175 fp 715 fp 458 fp

      .30 Carbine M.V. 1990 fps 1567 fps 1236 fps
      110 Gr soft point M.E. 967 fp 600 fp 373 fp

      The .30 Cal carbine does have a noticably flatter trajectory, but not enough to make a huge difference until you pass 200 yards

      In other words the two cartridges are more or less equivalent.
