There is NO difference in the receiver other than the stamp of M2 vs. M1.

You cannot replace the receiver of your M2, you'll have to fix it. So what's wrong with it that is "worn excessively"?

Snake45,

"dfariswheel" is (as usual) 100% CORRECT. = That's WHY that what the BATFE calls "a registered m2 carbine kit" is SO STUPID. ======> "an M2 kit" is just "a handful of ordinary carbine parts" with NO serial-numbered items. - There are NO IDENTIFING MARKS on a "M2 kit" and, if a "registered owner" wanted to do so, he/she could have dozens of parts-kits for one 200.oo tax payment, provided that they were kept in different places so that they couldn't be "inventoried" by BATFE.
(In point of fact, some of the NRA carbines, which were sold to members in the 1950s & 1960s were M2 & would fire FA. = Like I said, the !@#$%^& federal government is STUPID & requiring the registration of "carbine kits" is a "sign of low IQ" and/or just DISHONESTY.)

yours, sw

I never heard of the DCM actually selling full auto capable Carbines, but a lot of M1 Carbines they sold had some M2 parts in them.
Having an M2 trigger guard, sear, disconnecter, and operating rod was common.

It looked like when the Army prepared full-auto M1 Carbines for DCM sales they just pulled the trip, selector, and spring out and called it good.

dfariswheel,

Fyi, I know (of personal observation) that the carbine, delivered by the USPO by DCM in about 1960, was FA when delivered, as my childhood friend's father (a WWII Darby's Ranger, btw) went to town, bought FMJ ammo & we went out to the city lake to shoot that day. = Surprize, surprize, it fired FA "quite nicely, thank you".

Btw, Mr. Burn's carbine was an "as new condition" RIA re-build.

yours, sw
