No, not the M1 carbine. The trivia question has to do with a rifle not a carbine.

No, not the '03 Springfield rifle which was originally designed for another cartridge, the 30-03 cartridge. Even the M1 rifle would be an incorrect answer as it was originally designed for the .276 cartridge.

1917 Eddystone.  Just a guess but it was built around the 1903 M2 round if I recall correctly.

The M1917 rifle would be incorrect as it is a copy of the British Pattern 1914 rifle originally chambered for the .303 British cartridge.

The .30-40 Government cartridge was developed for the Norwegian Krag Jorgensen Model 1898 rifle that was originally chambered for the 6.5 cartridge, so it would be an incorrect answer if the trivia question included rifles developed in the 19th century.

No, the AR10 rifle was never adopted by the U.S. Ordnance Department nor procured by branches of the military. Select fire AR15 rifles were procured, not adopted, until the M16(same rifle) was adopted by the U.S. Ordnance Department.

This can be confusing but if you can remember that beginning on July 1, 1925 the U.S. Ordnance Department began using the M designation with a number, not a year, for newly adopted items, all beginning with M1. What is confusing is there are pre-1925 items with a year designation that were not adopted by the U.S. Ordnance Department that are thought to be adopted. One example is the Model 1921 Thompson submachine gun. It is a commercial, not military, designation. Post 1925 examples are the Model 1928 Thompson submachine gun and Model 1942 Johnson rifle which would have had an M designation with a number, not a year, had they been adopted by the U. S. Ordnance Department. These are commercial designations. Yes, both the Thompson and the Johnson were used in WWII but they were procured, or adopted, by individual branches of the military.

In WWII, the T29 was a project to produce the .45 M3 submachine gun with a more powerful cartridge, the .30 carbine cartridge. The project ended with the more advanced development of what would eventually be adopted as the M2 carbine.

Posted By: Quietus

Could it be a semi-automatic in .50 BMG?   There was a thread and a Forgotten Weapons video over on the CMP Carbine Forum a couple days back.  Didn't watch it.  Thrust of the OP was that it shared some features with the M1 Carbine, and that David Williams had something to do with the design, and that our brothers in the frozen North had tested it as an anti-tank rifle.  Other commenters disagreed on the shared features.  

This is a long shot, indeed.

No, Smokpole, not a short stroke piston. A clue to the answer is "the long-standing dissatisfaction with the range, lethality and foliage penetration of the M1 carbine." To develop a carbine length weapon with none of the M1 carbine's disadvantages. Most will be familiar with the answer, but not having equated it to the M1 carbine.

Trivia Question.
The M1 carbine's barrel length is 18", which classifies it as a carbine. Identify the U.S. rifle with the longest barrel length used in WWII?


Posted By: Smokpole
Date Posted: Feb 28 2022 at 12:25pm
I have to disagree with the proposition that the tanker was the first. The T3 carbine was developed before the tanker. Both were variants of the parent firearm utilizing modified parts. The T3 actually had a change to the receiver as well as other parts, while the tanker used the same receiver with modified parts. The T3 was developed in 44 while the tanker was developed in 45. The T3 WAS standardized as the M3.

You are correct Smokepole. Iowa class battleships have 16 inch guns and their 66 foot long barrels are rifles.
"After the guns were fired, each rifle barrel had to be cleaned. Unlike small caliber guns which can be field-stripped, the guns aboard an Iowa-class battleship could not be disassembled, so the gunners mates assigned the job of cleaning the rifles required a full day or more to ensure that the barrels were correctly and adequately cleaned. To clean the rifles, a bore brush was lifted by two sailors and inserted into the gun barrel, where it was pulled through the rifle with the same equipment used to load the shells. Within the turret, crewmen checked to ensure that the breech fittings were properly cleaned and lubricated, while sailors outside the turret scraped off soot, and painted over flash burns left from the explosive expulsion of the 16-inch shells from the gun barrels."

Many books when published were believed to have accurate information, but at times new information comes to light.
So back in 1993 Larry though this to be accurate. I will check Larry's list of corrections to see if he was planning on updating this information, as he did in WB 3 for anything he found needing a correction.

This device was reported to the club by Bill Ricca and published in CCNL 14 Dec 1977. Bill points out that the M6 should not be used with the Dutch device.

Then in 2013 there were internet sales  advertising them as "Original WW2 or later M1 Carbine Brass Case Deflectors" CCNL 378 reports of these sales. The author of that report quips "it is indeed 'or later' "
More information was added in CCNL 384, by the same person, who happens to be the OP of this thread.

What is interesting is if you look at WB page 793 you will learn this device was used with plastic blank bullets that just had a brass base. If it was a deflector, then it would be a Plastic Case Deflector.
CCNL 231-3, 283-7, and 352-2 reports the NMW ammo.

For anyone interested in how this Breech Shield fits on a carbine, take a look at the following link.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/295458321038" rel="nofollow - https://www.ebay.com/itm/295458321038

So clearly this is a case where the incorrect information sticks in peoples minds.
Thanks to Louis for bringing it up for us to discuss.

I will take a picture of the blanks and upload later.

That short butt plate screw was used on many weapons. I believe the Thompson, M1917 and others. When I searched the part number it was even used on a tank. Seem it was a standard  type screw used by ordnance in many applications.

"... have in common?"   The carbine's type 2 rear sight and the rear sight on the M1903A3 are similar but not the same.   Both have a dovetail (reverse execution, one to the other), similar protective wings, a windage knob, and an aperture that slides up a ramp (the M1903A3 ramp goes to 800y or past, the carbine's ramp goes to 300y).

Clue to answering the trivia question. This is a picture of the M1 carbine oiler issued with the still unidentified weapon. There is one other item the M1 carbine has in common with this weapon. What is the other item and the weapon.

Correct. The M1 carbine and the M3 submachine gun share the M1 carbine's oiler and sling. The M3A1 submachine gun has it's own oiler built into the grip and only uses the M1 carbine sling.

Correct, flats were milled on the barrel nut, so with the stock removed, squeezing the stock legs against the barrel nut flats gave the leverage to remove the barrel nut which secures the barrel in place. What two other uses are there for the M3/M3A1 stock?

Answer to trivia question. In addition to being a butt stock are three other uses. The first use, removing the barrel nut, was previously answered. Te second use is a cleaning rod, the ends of the stock are internally threaded to accomodate a bore cleaning brush. The third use is a magazine loader. Two pictures demonstrate barrel removal and magazine loading.
