6.1 million M1 carbines were made during WW2. I would believe most were not in combat and most were in very mundane duties. If only 1% of the above total were “acquired” through various means, that would represent 61,000 carbines. A lot of so called original carbines today are undoubtedly not real. But with such a large number available, a good many probably do exist!!
