Listen up, World War 2 fans. U.S. Armament Manufacturing LLC is reviving the legendary DeLisle carbine. This rifle is a legend and one of the best-known integrally-suppressed firearms ever made. Let’s check it out!

Silencers @ TFB:

This DeLisle repro is chambered in .45 ACP, just like the originals. It has a 19-inch barrel and feeds from an 8-round magazine that started life as a 1911 mag. The overall length is 36 inches, and it weighs in at 9.5 pounds.

The original rifles were used by famous units like the British Commandos and Special Operations Executive. Wikipedia claims that 129 were made in total. This was not a high-rate production gun! Our friend Ian of Forgotten Weapons got his hands on an original gun, so head over to check out his video to see one in action.

Now for the painful part: the DeLisle Commando Carbine retails for $5,999. Ouch. That is still cheaper than existing reproductions though, with this one fetching $8,225 in a Rock Island Auction in 2023. If that is still a little too steep for your budget, U.S. Armament Manufacturing also sells licensed reproductions of the Colt 1903 Hammerless pistol in .380 and .32 Auto. Those start at $1,799, so it’s still not cheap but quite a bit less than a DeLisle. No availability date is listed on the website, but there is an email sign-up for notifications when they are in stock.
