The M1 Carbine would have had 15 rounds (later versions, like the M2 and M3 would have larger banana clips). It would be weaker than a rifle (smaller charge), less accurate (smaller charge and shorter barrel) and would shoot exactly the same speed as the M1 Garand, but would make up for these weaknesses with it's larger clip and more flexable reload (since the M1 Garand clip had to be ejected after last slug before reloading). It would be an excellent support weapon, but it shouldn't be silent or really that deadly. Maybe as powerful as the US SMG (since that gun was pretty weak, compared to its German counterpart) but a little more accurate under sustained fire.
