I like shooting this rifle, so far I have I have put through about 600 rounds. Only had one miss feed. It is easy to shot and is accurate. Now the negative, the workmanship of the stock is poor. I had to re-attach the tang on the upper cover as the cover fell off while firing. The pop rivets used were ground down so much that they could not hold the metal clip in place. The stock is chipped where the receiver is secured to it. It looks like when they assembled the rifle a piece of the stock chipped and they just glued it back in and now it is a little higher than the rest of the stock. The front sight is loose, it twists side to side not much but it should not move at all. It looks they used a straight pin rather a tapered pin like the original. The bolt on occasion will jam when pulling it back manually and you have to force it forward. Being that this carbine is about half the cost of other manufacturers it is not a bad deal. If they paid a bit more attention to the easy stuff I would have given the rifle a higher rating.

I have wanted an M1 carbine for quite a while now. I did a lot of research into more expensive reproductions out there, but I couldn't find enough good reviews on them to justify the higher price. The Auto Ordnance M1 that I received is a beautiful rifle. The rifle is more than accurate enough for shooting steel plates off hand at 50 - 100 yards. The only knock I have on the rifle is that I typically have one failure to feed per magazine. I have this issue with the included magazine and two Korean 15 round magazines that I have purchased. I simply pull back on the charging handle a little and then the round goes into battery. This isn't a big issue as this isn't a defensive rifle for me, but it is a little annoying.

Sweet little gun. Both wood and steel were better than expected and it just feels good when you hold it and pull it up. Stock would be short for a lanky fella but it's easy to add a recoil pad. I'm more than satisfied.

Awesome looking and feeling gun. Auto Ordnance has done a great job. Ran some steel ammo throughout it with the occasional hiccup. Ran a box of brass through it, them more steel with no more issues what so ever. Over all great gun, Buds was great as always. Definitely recommend.

I've actually had this for a couple years now and just saw I never reviewed it. The biggest thing to realize with this rifle is it requires a break in period. I had issues in the first 2-300 rounds with the case getting stuck in the chamber. It didn't matter what brand of ammo was used. I did contact Auto-Ordnance on the issue and they offered to have it shipped back to them to look at. I decided to try it a few more times. Now, I haven't had any issues with it since those first few. I'm actually really surprised with how accurate the rifle is.
