One of the first things we put in the Vault some time ago were photos of many of the M1 Carbine development program prototype designs. Well, there were a couple guns missing, and I’ve got one of them to add today. The rifle submitted to the program by H&R (and designed by Eugene Reising) was basically a Reising submachinegun rechambered for .30 carbine. It was light, accurate, simple…and had big problems feeding and extracting.
As always, you can fine the complete set of photos at the Harrington & Richardson Light Rifle page in the Vault.
