    BTW does anybody else think an M1 Carbine would be an excellent survival / Bug out SHTF gun? It’s so much lighter and handier than my AR.
    I'd take a mini 14 over an m1 carbine or garand for shtf, but I don't find the AR to be heavy or cumbersome

    Depends on how much junk you put on your ar15, if you want an ar15 thats about the same weight or lighter than an m1 carbine then built a colt 723 clone especially an early style one with a pencil barrel.

    As far as an m1 carbine being a good shtf gun.... The rifle itself is fine i guess but if its a true appocoliptic event then good luck trading for or finding ammo. In my oppinion even 7.62x39 would be much easier to find or trade for than 30 carbine.

    The AR is ten time what the m1 carbine is. In a shtf situation 30 carbine will be non existent, 223/556 would be much easier to come by. Just my opinion.
    Don't be stupid!!!!!
