Kahr Arms Shipping Auto-Ordnance M1 Carbines
PEARL RIVER, NEW YORK – "The AOM160 Auto-Ordnance M1 Carbine is a .30 caliber rifle with a black polymer folding stock and metal perforated handguard. The overall length is 36 ½ inches and a compact 27 ½ inches when folded. The AOM160 has a post front sight, flip style rear sight and includes one 15 round shot stick magazine. The Auto-Ordnance AOM160 is durable, light; weighing only five pounds and easy to shoot.
The Auto-Ordnance M1 .30 Caliber Carbine is produced at Kahr Arms state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Worcester, Massachusetts. The Auto-Ordnance carbines are produced using newly manufactured parts on high precision computerized machinery. Markings include the following: Auto-Ordnance, Worcester, MA behind the rear sight; U.S. Carbine, Cal. 30 ML on the receiver in front of the bolt and the serial number is engraved on the left side of the receiver.
Since 1999, Kahr Arms has been proud to support the legacy of the Auto-Ordnance Corporation. The Auto-Ordnance division of Kahr Arms began production of an M1 Carbine replica in 2005. The Auto-Ordnance AOM160 retails for $792.00 and is shipping now. The M1 Carbine came into popularity during WWII offering troops a better defensive weapon than a pistol or submachine gun, with great accuracy and range but without the recoil or weight of a full-power infantry rifle. Find out how it feels to carry a piece of history before legislature and politics put this design back on the shelf."

Okay, the carbine is ugly and a tad too expensive but lets see what the real price will work out to be. Not a big fan of anything Kahr, but for maybe $600 out-the-door the carbine might be a keeper if it can also shoot, too.
Yes, the attractive young lady is holding her pistol properly, unlike, oh, say Clint Smith in each and every last issue of American Handgunner where he points a gun at the camera with his finger wrapped tightly around the trigger. Perhaps she could contact him and offer some pointers.
Finally, it is interesting that Kahr believes that "legislature" will soon put this design back on the shelf, now isn't it?
Wouldn't care to stick up for our rights, or pass along information to those who can't figure out how to, hell no. BUY THIS NOW BEFORE IT BECOMES ILLEGAL is the clarion call from Kahr, and that's just sooooooo special.
Purchase as many Kahr products as you so desire. Lobby your local politicians to assure that this remains possible. But never, ever act the sheep and acquire something because some gun maker is trying to scare you into buying it because the liberals will soon be making it illegal.
Sweet geez but I may dislike these asshats almost as much as S&W.
