    I did an interview with a WWII/Korean War vet who used one on Okinawa and then was handed one in Korea. he said the carbine (M3) was so heavily modified that it fired like crap and they had to work in tandem with guys carrying Garands. He said when they found out he working knowledge of them they handed him one in Korea. I was commissioned by this guy's son to make a 1/6th scale version of him for his den.

    I often wondered why the anemic carbine was used for this cutting-edge equipment, and then I found the quite simple answer... the useful effective range of the IR illuminator was only 100 to 200 yards max, which fits in perfectly with the .30 carbine round.
