That’s one fast .30 cal carbine: The giggle switch enabled M2 (VIDEO)

The Wound Channel rips through correct “pot-bellied” M2 Carbine with its selector switch set to Freedom.

While millions of “war baby” M1 Carbines were produced during and immediately after WWII, a much smaller number of select-fire M2s were made by General Motors’ Inland Division starting in 1944, though many regular M1s were later converted.

TWC has an early M2 and, while few saw combat against the Germans and Japanese, they did prove really popular in close-in fighting against Chinese/Norks in Korea as well as with U.S. advisors in the early stages of the Vietnam conflict. You can probably guess why.
