This World War II-era carbine is a copy of the original Inland Manufacturing carbines, featuring the same construction and stampings of the original — including arsenal-stamped stock markings. Three models are available: M1 1944 wood-stocked original without bayonet lug, the M1 1945 wood-stocked original with bayonet lug and M1A1 Paratrooper.
The AUG A3 M1 is available in a Short-Rail version, a High-Rail version and an Integrated-Optic version with either a 1.5X or 3X scope. The M1 optics version has a traditional AUG scope tube, with three Picatinny rail sections to accommodate accessories. The AUG A3 M1 includes one translucent polymer 30-round magazine, and 10- and 42-round magazine versions are available.
Aimpoint introduces the Aimpoint Carbine Optic (ACO) — designed for use on the modern sporting rifle platform. The entry-priced ACO features a 30mm aluminum alloy sight tube with a fixed height mount, to provide co-witness with MSR backup iron sights. A 2-MOA red-dot is used to allow for fast target acquisition speed and accuracy. The ACO is completely waterproof and includes front and rear flip covers and an anti-reflection filter.
The Micro T-2 features changes from the existing Micro T-1, including a new sight housing to allow for front and rear protective flip covers and anti-reflective devices, additional protection for adjustment turrets and increased durability for internal electronic components. It also features an upgraded front lens for increased clarity. It can be used on existing mounts that fit the Micro T-1.
