I don't pretend to be a military/M1 Carbine Historian.

But I'll make a generalized statement. If you job was "Infantry Rifleman" most of the time you could do your job best with the full sized battle rifle,such as the Garand.
But it might be that if you are a Platoon Leader,or RTO, or a number of other serious combat jobs,you are most effective focusing on another roll besides rifleman.
You still need an effective weapon to fight with.

Somehow the folks doing the fighting have a good idea of what will serve best.

Sometimes that was the M1 or M2 carbine.
