There's even a Pistol that uses a .30 Calibre Round, I think its made by AMT and is classed as an 'Auto Magnum'

You can get brand new ones (well, if you weren't in the UK). They're being reissued! Fulton Armory makes them. Also, Auto Ordinance (the makers of Tompson Center and Kahr firearms) has also re-issued them. They're about $600 U.S. Sweet rifles, and a magnificently utilitarian cartridge. BTW, Ruger still makes their Blackhawk revolver in .30 Carbine.

The m1 is a good reliable weapon, but I think that no army uses them any more. They are similarly priced to the AK-47, and I think they would chose the AK-47 over the m1, especially due to the m1's .30 round.

Correct. I can't think of any military that uses the M1 Carbine any longer. The M1 Carbine is a much lighter weapon than the AK and due to its almost collectors-status, is quite a bit more expensive than your average AK (I've seen like-new surplus M1 Carbines go for $900 and the new manufactures from Auto Ord are about $600. BTW the AK (7.62x39) is also "a .30 round", just more peppy then the .30 Carbine. 7.62x39 typically fires a 120 gr bullet at ~2330 ft/s while the .30 Carbine a 110 gr bullet at ~1500 ft/s.
