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.

Final clues. A carbine size weapon firing the M2 ball rifle cartridge(30-06) for use in the Pacific during WWII but never adopted.

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?

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.

The boys antitank rifle is British, but if it was U.S. it wouldn't be the longest U.S. rifle barrel used in WWII.

No, Quietus, the M1917 rifle does not have the longest rifle barrel used in WWII.

Good guess, W5USMC, but there's one rifle barrel that's longer.

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."
