.30M1 Carabine KTW please help!


#1

Hello I am looking for a box of .30M1 carbine KTW ammo.
I just have one round and missing the box
30 KTW


#2

Boxes for this caliber seem to be rare. I have never come across one in person in my 15 years of collecting KTW. The cartridges seem easy enough to locate.


#3

I second what Matt says. Good luck finding a box.
Put a want ad in the IAA journal.

I thought I had seen “blister packs” also.

My box isn’t in mint shape (far right of the last three drawer cuts)


#5

Very nice Pepper! I would not expect any less of you, Ha-ha…

Here is my .30 carbine KTW box. Magnetic bullet.

I had (and fired) some of those .30 Carbine KTW rounds back in the late 1960s, but they were loose rounds when I got them. What headstamp do they have? I clearly remember once seeing some KTWs in .35 Remington. Were any in that caliber ever sold commercially?

While the .35 Remington certainly was a popular auto-loading rifle caliber for police agencies in the U.S., I was unaware of the .350 Remington Magnum being typically chambered in anything other than bolt action rifles and pistols. The old thread this is from does not indicate the source of this information that I could see and may well be incomplete. Does anyone have further information on a .350 Rem. Mag. used by police in an auto-loader?

Thanks,
Dave

I, personally, have never heard of a police agency using the .350
Remington Magnum. I firmly believe that the Remington Models
8 and 81 were popular, including with the FBI who used the Remington
rifle, because they were semi-auto. Overall, in that rifle, the .35 was
certainly the best cartridge it was chambered for. Another thing that
made they popular was the 15-shot magazine conversion offering by
the Peace Officer Equipment Corporation (might have details of that
name wrong). These guns were obtained by them from Remington, and
then converted, including the stamping on the left side of the rounded top
of the receiver, as I recall, "POLICE GUN - (name of organization). We
had, in our store, the only two of these converted .35 Remingtons made
for San Quentin Prison. One we sold and one we put on our wall. Don’t
know what happened to it after the owners of the store closed it down. We
also had an empty case for one that was formerly FBI property, with room
for the rifle and several spare magazines, constructed very similar to the
famous cases for the Thompson Submachine Gun, although of course,
different in size and internal details.
