Craddock Auxiliary Carbine Mk.1 by Wolohan2011 Craddock Auxiliary Carbine Mk.1 by Wolohan2011
Here's the Craddock Auxiliary Carbine. A cheap tube gun chambered in 5.56x30mm. Originally developed for the Yeomanry, an auxiliary paramilitary force that patrols rural areas on horseback. 
Despite being very obsolete, it's still in widespread use within the Yeomanry and the Armed forces. Section leaders, AT troops, and weapon/vehicle crews are still very likely to be issued these, especially in reserve divisions.

Uh, the 5.56 MINSAS didn't exist until the 1980's (I think), but overall, I would like a carbine like this over the M1A1 Carbine as it has a better sight profile and cheek rest
