The 30 Carbine cartridge was a result of the US Army's light rifle project that started just prior to WWII. The purpose of this project was to create a firearm that was lighter and smaller than the M1 Garand and Thompson submachine gun that also displayed better range and capacity than the 1911A1 standard issue handgun. The M1 Carbine chambered in 30 Carbine was born and was issued to officers, paratroopers and other rear area units.
