Inland reciever
SA on sight
lever type safety
mag button has letter M on it
flat bolt

Re: Newb with USGI

You have a typical rebuilt carbine with parts from mixed manufacturers.

"...typical rebuilt carbine..." Commonly known as a 'mixmaster'. S'ok. 99.99% of all carbines went through an arsenal rebuild after W.W. II. Doesn't make 'em any less fun or accurate to shoot. Or less desirable.

Re: Newb with USGI

although I don't post here much as I used to....let me offer some words of
wisdom.....original all correct carbines are RARE.....95% or more orignals
are mixmasters.

If you have a carbine that is all correct, you either have an incredible find or
a "phoney" put together.

ww2 Carbine production was so good, that the parts are completely interchangeable.

Anyone can buy up 50 carbines and make 50 perfect as issued rifles....and sell them
at premium prices....I have three right now....all are mixmasters and I wouldn't have
it any other way.

Over the years and years, they got all mixed up....just talk to any armorer who was
around form 1940-1970....M1911's are the same....strip 50 and then put them back
together any way any how......anyone today who spends big bucks to buy an all
"original" M1 carbine is either a fool or an expert. I am neither

Years ago, when I worked at the gunshop, we would get them by the crate just hosed down with Cosmoline, if you were careful and took the time it was not unusual to find the mixin's to make complete "originals", and it was likewise just a common to find enough bits to make M2's if you know what I mean, not saying, mind you, but if you were careful, one could find stuff. you know "stuff"
