My CMP service grade Inland shoot great. I've never shot it off the bench except to sight it in, but offhand and out to 100 yards, I've done just as well with the M1 as I have with my AR carbines. The low recoil really helps too. Even after shooting the poodleshooter ARs, the M1 feels like a 22 in comparison.
I'm surprised about the 30 round mags giving people such problems. My Korean M2 mags have run perfectly for me.
My only complaint regarding the M1 is finding ammo for it.
