Thanks very much for posting that video, love listening to both of those gentlemen.

The reliability of these carbines is also the most fascinating aspect to me at the moment.

What did you guys think about Hackathorn's comments on the magazines being thought of as essentially disposable by GIs? Kinda makes me want to really stock up on some, lol.

Was also surprised that Ian never had any luck with carbines. My one and only, well worn Winchester has been very reliable (though I have only put 300 some odd rounds through it myself).

Great video that confirmed that Inland made the best (most reliable) carbine and that Winchester carbines lacked the quality of Inland.

Found the video earlier today. Pretty cool interview. I’ve experienced the lackluster performance of a couple mags already and can relate.

I can understand that. The little punched out magazine locking lugs would wear out from repeated use and cause feed issues. They are the weak points on carbine magazines. I always press in the magazine release when inserting a magazine. I get zero wear on the lugs doing it that way.
