In many cases, the M1 Carbine was very much to be a direct replacement for the pistol.

Many individuals who, lacking the carbine would have been issued a handgun, were not. They were issued the carbine instead -- troops such as truck drivers, couriers, supply personnel, etc.

Supposedly S&W produced several N frames chambered in .30 carbine.

Not only was blast horrendous, the guns apparently showed extremely accelerated wear.
