I have an M1 carbine, and I have recently been looking for books on it.
I'm not really looking for historical books, more technical manuals.
If you guys could help - I'd be in your debt.
email Jay, he will likely have what you need
The absolute BEST technical book ever written on the M1 Carbine is Jerry Kuhnhausen's book "The US .30 Caliber Gas Operated Carbines: A Shop Manual.
This is a book written for gunsmiths and covers EVERYTHING known about the mechanics of the carbine, including:
Parts check out, and dimensions.
Gas cylinder work.
Price is around $30.00 from Brownell's, MidwayUSA, and can be ordered from most online or local book sellers.
This is the best money a carbine owner can spend.
thank you guys
this will be a huge help, and hopefully it will answer all the questions i have
Thanks RAF i was hoping you would chime in.
I think that book suits my needs better but in true ARFCOM fashion I'm going to get both.
