I got this in a trade a few years back and really dont use it as I have many M1's. It is a Standard Products M1 Carbine serial# puts it in late 1944. Has flip sight, all stamps are correct on wood according to info on line. The only draw back is someone at some point braized a homemade flash hider on end of barell which I have not gotten around to taking to a smith to have removed. I have a few original mags and butt pouch that will go with it as well. Not wanting shotguns,old bolt military or SKS. EDIT: Feel free to PM what you may think this is worth, I have an idea but not possitive.
