Not Just for the ‘Jungle’: Inland’s New Carbine

Inland Manufacturing recently released the American-made Jungle Carbine, which brings back the looks of the original 1944 and 1945 WWII combat carbine with some modern features.

Inland’s .30-caliber Jungle Carbine is a faithful replica fitted with a military-style conical flash hider, correct military model sights, original-type low American walnut wood stock with fittings. It takes 10-, 20-, and 30-round military magazines, and it is sold with one 15-round magazine (except in California and other round-restricted states.

The 5.5-pound carbine has an 18″ long (including flash hider) barrel threaded 1/2″x28 so the flash hider may be removed to fit an aftermarket sound suppressor. Overall length is 34 inches.

When the original purchaser’s warranty coupon is received by Inland within 60 days of purchase, a military-style cloth sling will be sent to the purchaser at no charge as receipt confirmation for the warranty coupon.

MSRP is $1,079.

  1. Looks great, although not an original which are hard to come by these days, it would be a great alternative addition to someone’s collection. I’d like to have one.

  2. have always loved the M1 carbine, and owned at one time several of them, all original GIs.. but alas, I was stupid enough to trade them in for other weapons which I don;’t even have any more either. I did get one recently from Auto Ordinance which is a very good looking duplicate and very accurate and reliable functionally. And it was only about $800.

  3. I agree with Phillip. M1 carbines were mediocre battle rifles from the beginning. M1 carbines were fun plinkers back when you could pick one up for a couple hundred and there was cheap surplus ammo. There are a lot better rifles in my opinion for 1k now a days.

  4. I’ve never fired an M1 Carbine that was very accurate. Well
    above MOA, that is for sure. And, given the 30-cal cartridge,
    I wouldn’t expect anything smaller than 4-5 inches at 50 yds,

    All that for just under $1100., what a deal!

    A new/used lever gun chambered in an 1800 pistol cartridge
    would be more accurate and have more killing power for a lot
    less $$$.

  5. My M1 Carbine was purchased through the NRA program years ago for $19 and still is in my collection. Nice looking gun but not very practical for anything than plunking with reloads. But I do not think I would sell it even if I could get anything near what the replica is selling for.

  6. I’ve always liked the M1 Carbine. Thought they were a nice lightweight handy little carbine. However, as many have stated, $1000+/- is a hard pill to swallow. Obviously many AR’s can be had for less, Mini-14’s for a retro look/feel, etc.. Bring the price to $500-600 (with walnut stock) and I’d be a buyer)

  7. The original purpose of the M1 Carbine was to provide non infantry troops with a lite portable weapon for personal defense and officers and NCOs the same. It was to be used for personnel defense not offensive action. As such it generally replaced the handgun. Long range accuracy and lethalaty were not important. As combat evolved in WWII it was used more and more in offensive operations due to the lightness and high magazine capacity despite it’s shortcomings. At close range it was not handycaped as much by it’s lack of power and accuracy. They are fun to shoot, accurate enough at close range, and more easily managed than a service pistol. Still the price for this weapon seems excessive compared to a rack grade AR15.

  8. Personally, I think it’s a great gun to play with. Shooting cans to see how far you can roll them on the ground is a fun challenge. the further away they roll the more difficult it is to roll them. I bought mine when it still had cosmoline on it from a friend who bought it thru the Civilian Marksmanship program for military surplus.
    In a Ruger Blackhawk, it essentially shoots at the same velocities as the 357, 41 & 44 magnum cartridges. In my mind it’s a 30 caliber magnum in a revolver. The case length is identical to the 357, 41 & 44 magnums. The recoil is much more pleasant & it shoots quite accurately in the Blackhawk. Still need ear protection tho. I always shot 100 grain Speer plinker bullets in mine.

  9. Love it, a little pricey though. I have an original m-1 carbine made by rock-ola all part’s are stamped an numbered,great for varmints and just messing around. Traded a box of 1 inch sockets for it great condition dated 5/45 on the barrel .if only it could talk
