Nice weapon.

Why is the trigger group bronze? Did they replace the parts or just plate them?

Wow, the non-bayonet lug barrel band and original rear flip sight! That's very unusual, usually those features disappear during the arsenal rebuild!

Looks like a nice pick up.

Good looking carbine!

And since you're so disappointed in it just box it up and send it to me. I'll give it a loving home.

The rear sight and barrel band are early features. I doubt left the factory like that and went directly to the Bavarians. More than likely, imo, is this carbine went overseas in the hands of a USGI, fought in the war and when the GI rotated home during the occupancy his carbine went to the Bavarians before it could get a post war rebuild. So you have a genuine, USGI Nazi killing machine on your hands!

You're a bad man....I've been wanting one of these but can't afford it right now.

However, the story behind these rifles is what makes it worth having


What's the story?

Nice rifle, I need one.

Very nice rifle!

The M1 Carbine is one of those I really want to get, not to shoot but to just stare at.
