    Chinese soldiers used the types captured from the Americans later in the war. They started using American carbines that are much lighter to carry and American artillaries.

    normally they were given around 4-5 rounds before each engagement. the gov was too poor to give the nesecary equipment so it was natural to salvage what they could from the fallen foe.

    M1 grand was too big for china soldier at the time, even now. that's why chinese perfer 38 rifle and chinese 98K more. but M1 carbine has more ammo for one clip, and it shoots faster. but i guess because of the weight, more people would prefer other rifles. chinese prefer M1 carbine, we've seen those in civil war, thompson sub, M3 sub, PPSH-41/43.

    "Even now"
    Wow, M1 grand had expired from the western military about the 60s 70s. If we are still using those, then we might just give up Taiwan and let the Americans make fun of us.

    it sure sounds like the chinese army is the garbage collector. these guns were mainly used in WWII, like the thompson, sten, greasegun, k98k etc. i know they're still quite effective but other countries are already using assault rifles and china is still using old submachine guns. not to criticize, just saying it has a feeling of being a garbage collector.

    I know most of our tank, airplanes, ships are made from technology from the 50s and 60s but i don't think we are that poor at buying simple rifles. I can get better guns from ebbay than those types.

    is it the problem of my english? by even now i mean even now it is too big and heavy for chiense soldiers.

    and yes. at the time. chinese armies were like a world weaponaries. not only M1s, K98s and stuff, there are samples showing, also weapons captured by the soviet army from germany were also issued to them as well. you could find lots of rare seen weapons in the force, today in the garbage pile.....or...miliitary historical museum in beijing.....
