Nice M-1! I wish my DCM rifle was that nice of condition.
Great pic. One of the beautiful and hard hitting weapons of all time.
Just my humble opinion, but I cannot possibly fathom a home defense scenario against any conceivable hostile attack that would need me to resort to a magazine-fed rifle in 308 Winchester.
I recently acquired a Hi Point carbine chambered in 10mm. I put the original stock in the gun safe; and installed the action in a High Tower Arms bullpup stock. So far, it has eaten everything without a hiccup. The barrel is 17 1/2 inches with an overall length of 27 1/2 inches. That length doesn't seem excessive for indoor use. Ten round magazines are the only choice right now; but a twenty rounder is said to be in the works.
I don't know that it is the best rifle for home defense; but I certainly wouldn't feel undergunned with it.
Hard body armored soviet invaders...

4595TS in an HTA stock.
I'll still go for the 870, though.
I mean it wouldn’t be my first choice, but either of my AR-10’s would work in a pinch.
I’d much rather have one of my various AR-15’s, ideally either my 12.5 300 BO, 8.5 6.8, or 11.5 6.8, or 14.5 5.56. But I’d even take my 20 inch A4 over a -10.
Modern military body armor stops 7.62, even AP cold, so why would that be the choice?
It should be good for about a 300 meter sternum shot. If you are a little high or low it is ok. Put on a nice 1-6x scope with a bdc reticle and you are good for maybe 200 meters more range. a cheap laser range finder adds even more range.
Because soviets are probably too cheap to provide hard body armor to their troops.
Same thing with the Red Chinese.
Ok, feel free not to continue proving yourself uneducated.
Uneducated? And here I thought that my mastery of the English language is better than the average American; native born or naturalized.
Did you watch that video that went around last week? Multiple suspects entered back door that was kicked in. The home owner owned a check cashing type business. I think there were four suspects. Appeared to be wearing body armor and armed with rifles, one with a pistol. A .308 or Shotgun (00/slug) would have been very appropriate.
I love my Hi Point 4595TS. It would make a very good home defense weapon in 45ACP. Mine's reliable as hell and was very affordable. Planning on getting a suppressor for it.
What is your budget?
BCM is pretty good for around $1200. If you don't care how much you spend, there is LWRC. You might also look at FN SCAR.
I liked the scar 16 more than any ar I've ever shot.
Meh. LMT is where it’s at.
I also have a High Point 4595TS, great rifle but a bit heavy. Saying that, I have 4 magazines always loaded though the rifle is in a cabinet.
For house defense I have a Rossi Circuit Judge filled with .410 PDX. I use this rifle as self defense so my wife can operate it in an emergency. She has a difficult time racking a slide on a pistol and a Circuit Judge is pretty light with a decent trigger press.
Its use becomes... pull the trigger until it stops and then it becomes a fairly light weight club. Also, its a nice looking rifle.
Certainly improves the looks of the Hipoint, but I wouldn't want my face that close to where a kaboom would happen. It's my hangup with bullpups, especially with a modified hipoint.
