Quarrel splashed out of the mangroves. He was carrying a rifle. He said apologetically. "No havin' gun, . Looks like us may need hit."Dr No – Chapter 10.
Bond took it. It was a U.S. Army Remington Carbine, .300. These people certainly had the right equipment. He handed it back.
As James Bond, Quarrel and Honey Rider head up the river to the former camp of the Audubon Society men, they are forced to hide from No's men who are looking for them. One man is lingering behind, and Bond kills him. Quarrel takes the man's gun – a U.S. Army Remington Carbine, .300.
This was likely the M1 carbine, which was the standard firearm for the U.S. military during World War II, the Korean War and well into the Vietnam War. A lightweight, easy to use 30 caliber (7.62 mm) semi-automatic carbine, this rifle was also very popular with military and police forces around the world.
No equipped his security team with them, showing, as Bond noted, that he gave his people the right equipment.
