Foreign Military Assistance
and the
U.S. M1 & M2 Carbines

 

What You Need to Know

The data provided within the chart is from a variety of sources usually originating from the method of funding, each indicated specifically in the right column and below the chart. Sources without first hand knowledge have been excluded from this data. The exact number of carbines provided worldwide will probably never be known, for a variety of reasons. This chart represents a minimum. When in doubt, Iíve left the data out.

Many countries sold, traded, destroyed, and/or donated these carbines to other countries and/or private gun brokers. The data in this table is restricted to the original U.S. Ordnance contract carbines the United States provided these countries.
