    actually i was inquiring if the internal parts are original, action etc? Stock was obvious! Have the parts been replaced, parkerized or reblued? what is original to the firearm?
    thanks

    yes I believe internal parts are original. I got it from a guy who said he owned it the last 20 years and he got it exactly like this

    M1 carbine parts never match, the manner in which they were produced utilized a logistics board that moved excess parts from one maker to another that required them. Very, very few have not been refinished at one time or another. That being said, this one appears all right, can't really tell from the pictures. A replacement rear sight and a stock would put it back to correct, probably.

    If you want to research there are a few definitive books out, one by Craig Reisch is invaluable. The M1 carbine was updated at the orginizational level constantly while others were built with the updates as they became required, it becomes tricky to figure out if a carbine is in an "as issued" or a "as manufactured" condition. When you start restoring one you have to figure out which way you want to go.

    IIRC this should have (as manufactured incorporated all of the changes because of the manufacturing date of this particular gun)
    3rd type barrel band
    4th type bolt
    3rd type rear sight
    2nd type sear
    3rd type action slide
    3rd type trigger housing
    3rd type hammer and sear
    2nd type safety
    2nd type recoil spring
    Original stock was "low wood"
    4 rivet handguard

    I think I realize what you might have there.
    In fact someone loved this rifle to fit it with a handle such as the one in the picture supplied.
    Most often a weapon like this was cherished and admired and then shot or fired only to satisfy the owners confidence in the killing ability and accuracy at the range desired.
    I would bet the barrel and action are tighter than the stock.
    Strange but very - very - NICE

    Need Ammo?

    I have 300 rounds for this type of gun that I got as part of a trade. They are reloads by some small company out by Creswell / Oakland / Eugene area, near there. This came together with AK 47 rounds reloaded by the same company. Those worked great. I have not popped any of the 30 cal because I don't have this type of gun. Let me now if you are interested. I am always looking to trade for 9mm, 22lr, 38 Special and 357.
