"It used to be (for rifles), but then the powers that be decided a few million M1 carbines with 16 in. barrels were worth more to the government as cash after being sold to the public, and that that would be much easier if they weren't NFA items, so they changed the law."

I have heard this for 35 years, but I have never seen GI carbine with less than a 16" barrel. LukeA, can you shed any light?
