Final use date US[edit]

The article notes that the M1 Carbine saw its final use in 1973, but how correct is this?

The following picture shows the M1 Carbine in use amongst the M16, in 1985 no less. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:US_Army_infantrymen_unload_from_an_M113,_1985.jpg — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thom430 (talkcontribs) 13:43, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

  • There are no M1 Carbines present in this picture. Prehaps you should look again. From the left...first soldier is carrying an M16, second soldier is carrying an M16/M203, third soldier is carrying an M16, fourth soldier is carrying an M16/M203, fifth, sixth and seventh soldiers are carrying M16s. --RAF910 (talk) 22:07, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
