Re: Dress up carbine

Here's what I did with the Ultimak and a Eotech 512.

Re: Dress up carbine

This is my CMP Underwood M1 with a Choate Synthetic folder stock and the Ultimak handguard rail. Some USGI stocks will have to be modified for the Ultimak to fit, which is why I got the Choate stock(fits without modifying).If you can make out the bottom pic, you can see the difference in the older USGI(top)which require no modification for the Ultimak rail and the replacement USGI(bottom)which require some modification for the Ultimak.

Re: Dress up carbine

I like it
I think I am going to get the full syth. stock
Do you know any sites that sell them
The folder stock you have Looks nice is it the same overall length as the wood stock

Re: Dress up carbine

Tiger General Store sells both types and they are approximately the same overall length as a USGI stock(mine is slightly longer), but you will have to buy either the Ultimak rail or a metal handguard seperately http://www.tjgeneralstore.com/new_page_7.htm. They also sell the Ultimak Rail system http://www.tjgeneralstore.com/ultimak_mounts.htm. I do not know if the non-folding stock requires modification for the Ultimak or not. These stocks are a very tight fit, so you will need a ruber mallet and a lot of patience. You will also need the barrel band spring and the recoil plate off of your old stock.

cb1000h,
I don't think you should buy either. The M1 carbine looks fine and sexy just the way it is. MHO

Re: Dress up carbine

I'm a purist......There is something about "dressing up" a carbine that ruins its character in my eyes.

Re: Dress up carbine

That's why you have to have at least two carbines; one to "dress up" and one to keep "pure". After all, you can always put it back in the wood/fiberglass of you choice.[attachment=0:3r5qk8st]Carbine1.jpg[/attachment:3r5qk8st]

Re: Dress up carbine

finally I haveto say I have handled a tacky-cool carbine that handled better than a stocker. It falls in the same class as a 94 wichester as darn near perfect as a carry along rifle.
