My dad was working a payroll job - "finance" - when he was in Japan after the war, but he had in his office, at various times, a Thompson SMG, and one of the Carbines equipped with an infrared night scope.

The Carbine I have today came to me from my dad, who bought it from Uncle Sam in the early '60s. I still have the shipping papers.
My parents lived in Tacoma, WA, at the time, and the gun bears a Mt, Rainier Arsenal rebuild stamp, so the Carbine had sort of "come home".

I shot it a bit in USPSA 3-gun competition, including nationals in '06.
Fun gun.
