The M17 Carbine is Rifle skill weapon in Wasteland.

Background[edit | edit source]

When rumors of a Soviet invasion of the U.S. spread through the states, survivalists demanded a weapon that could use Soviet ammo (necessary, said the survivalists, if Americans were to be able to use captured ammo). The invasion never took place, but the M19 remains a high-profile weapon.

The M17 Carbine is a lighter, short-barreled version of the M19 rifle. Its 10-shot clip of 7.62mm ammo gives it a faster fire rate than its big brother, but the barrel length makes it slightly less accurate at a maximum range.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This rifle is fictional, but is comparable to some common ten-shot semi-automatic 7.62x39mm rifles, such as the Russian SKS and its various copies.
