Inland, think it's been rebarreled, the crown has no finish to it...I replaced the wooden stock with a Ramline a long time ago to give it that evil black rifle look...



Loaded up all my 15 and 30 rd mags about 20 in all and spent 2.5 hours cleaning it real good. Got as much of the carbon as humanly possible off the gas piston, made the gas port wasn't clogged, and went to the range. The mags were loaded with Winchester Q3132 factory ammo.

First range session I went through about 1/2 the mags, every 3rd mag I'd get a failure to feed, a round would be 1/2 in the chamber and 1/2 in the mag. Figured I have weak mag springs or something.

Today about 3 weeks later, went through another 10 mags, every one had a jam, especially the 30 rd mags, I'd have multiple failures to feed. Once a round actually got chambered it would extracted ok, but the next round wouldn't chamber. I even wiped down the feed ramp a couple of times, didn't seem to help much.

I'm about ready to give up on this gun, it's causing more agravaation than enjoyment.

Any ideas of how to make this gun enjoyable again?

Are the mags GI?? If not.. that is the cause right there....

That stock belongs on a knock off Plainfield or something.

Send the whole gun to me and I'll see what's wrong. The servivce is free but it takes about 25 years to be thorough.

You could be sent to prison for bad talking a M1 Carbine!

I think the only solution is to send the Carbine to me.

AR: Spring sets are also available from Brownells. Excellent used USGI stocks available from Reese Surplus. I kinda like that Ramline stock. Carbine so stocked looks like a Ruger 10-/22 on steroids!

Send it to me. It's not worth the frustration.

I have put a few of those Ram-line stocks on customer's rifles over the years. I have had to modify every single one to get them to work. Your operating rod is most likely rubbing the stock on the right side, and underneath the front of the op rod. In a few cases the stock tang screw was too tight and had to be backed out so the barreled action could seat correctly. Hope this helps.

My thoughts as well. On a Garand, with the recoil spring removed, the bolt and slide should cycle by gravity alone. I don't know if it applies to Carbines as well but you should be able to get a much better feel of any dragging issues with the recoil spring removed.

Check the bore and ensure the bore is not shot out on carbines and garands if the bore is opened too mush not enough gas will get to the piston causing weak cycling go to a gun smith and get the barrel gaged it takes 2 minuets
