I have a early Universal M1 carbine. It has never failed to function.
I am not sure that they do. The biggest failure of the m1 is the mags. They were meant to be disposeable in the field. There is a great forgotten weapons vid with ken hackathorn that goes into this aspect.
I see a fair number of folks, and have made the mistake myself, of running my m1 lubed like a moderen sporting rifle. They are meant to be well oiled.
So in those two issues you have 2 of the 3 things that can cause 90% of the issues in a gun. The third being ammo.
My best guess is that folks are applying modern oiling amounts (do you run your ar15 sopping wet)? To the M1 and after a magazine it starts to induce failures.
When I want your opinion I'll beat it out of you.

Over the years I have had a National Ordnance and a Plainfield. The former one was a beater, given to me as for helping to clean and catalog a friend's share of his father's estate guns, about a hundred and fifty rifles and maybe 50-60 handguns.(Don't get excited, this was in the mid 1980's) He and I argued, I did not want to take anything for helping him, he insisted so I took what was appeared to be the nastiest and cheapest rifle from the bunch. First experience firing a Carbine, I was hooked.
Latter one, the Plainfield was never fired. I heard those were supposed to be good though.
