Harrington & Richardson Light Rifle

One of the first things we put in the Vault some time ago were photos of many of the M1 Carbine development program prototype designs. Well, there were a couple guns missing, and I’ve got one of them to add today. The rifle submitted to the program by H&R (and designed by Eugene Reising) was basically a Reising submachinegun rechambered for .30 carbine. It was light, accurate, simple…and had big problems feeding and extracting.
