I just bought a IAI M1 Carbine a few weeks back and have been function testing it. I've run about 300 rounds through it now. Initially I had some FTF problems but I identified a bad magazine. Other than that no problems at all. I haven't mounted a scope on it to test accuracy, but off the bench with the peep sights (not the best for accuracy) it shoots about 2-3 inches at 50 yds. Indoor range. I'm going to change the stock for a synthetic from RamLine but other than that I am well satisfied with this carbine. It appears to be well built, a new manufacture GI clone. Almost forgot, it doesn't like Seller & Beloit ammo. Anyone else have experience with the IAI?
