    As I recall the Crossman's were a semi auto BB gun not a break barrel. I don't recall where the CO2 cartridge was stored, maybe in the mag well. I believe that the lookalike M1 Carbine magazines were also magazines for the BB's. I've seen a couple of them but, never fired or handled them.

    Interesting how the people who post pics of fake wall hanger guns, replica's and lookalike BB guns asking us to identify them, never seem to show a good photo of the guns action or any real features that would identify it as an authentic firearm

    Take a picture from the top, right behind and in front of the rear sight. Look for any stamped words like “ INLAND”.

    The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.

    Well no one needs a fully semi auto assault BB gun!

    I’m sorry I wasn’t clear. It was a real M1 Carbine and I loved it.

    Took a little digging, but it is a Crosman BB gun. See that little metal plate in front of the magazine well?
    Not a M1 Carbine feature. Here is a link to the owners manual on the crosman. Scroll down a couple of
    pages to figure 4. Interesting gun---BB's in the handguard, barrel cocking like a Winchester 1911 shotgun.

    "Lord, make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who seek to destroy me. Grant me victory over my foes and those that wish to do harm to me and mine. Let not my last thought be, if only I had a gun, and lord, if today is the day you call me home, let me die in a pile of empty brass"
