    Manually cycling the M1

    Read somewhere that you could make the M1 act like a bolt action, i.e., after each shot, manually cycle each round. It requires removing the gas cylinder plug. Has anyone attempted this process, and what are the results, positive or negative? Any damage possible to the gas cylinder? Used to prevent the damage to cases being auto ejected, and NOT having to pick up fired cases.

    I believe it can be done buy removing the gas plug guts and reinstalling the plug. The gutless plug must be installed or the gas cylinder lock will unscrew.

      Think this chap was saying that you need only remove the plug, nothing about taking anything else out?

    If you live in England and are lucky enough to own an M1 rifle or carbine it will not have a gas port. You have to manually cycle each round as semi auto is not allowed

      If you have the "poppet" type gas plug, a grenade launcher will open the valve and make it manually operated. The weight though will pull the point of impact down about 6 inches at 100 yards, and open the group up a little.
      The thief may possess something he stole, but he does not own it.
      The owner has a right to take his property back from the thief.

        Buy an adjustable plug snd open it up. Remember that if you remove the plug the cylinder lock is likely to move on it's own when you fire each round. Maybe not a problem but, in some cases could be.

          Appreciate the replies boys! Found a suggestion that makes sense. Pick up a cheap plug and run a 1/4" drill through it - manual operation only. Now to find "cheap" plug that hasn't been hardened, requiring some special drilling operation!

            Get a repro single slot plug. Don't ruin an original plug.
