I have a commercial M1 Carbine (not a USGI) and I would like to put a new stock on it. I bought it used with an aftermarket polymer folding stock and would like to make it look and feel like a USGI Carbine.

Boyd's makes the appropriate stock and handgaurds, but what else do I need in the way of hardware and where do I get it?

You'll need:
A buttplate and screw.
A recoil plate, a screw, and the plate screw nut that fits in the hole just behind the trigger guard.
A barrel band spring.

This assumes your carbine has a band installed around the barrel that holds both the stock and hand guard in place.

Here's some places to get them:

The parts you'll need are listed here as:
1. Butt plate screw.
2. Butt plate.
7. Recoil Plate Screw.
8. Recoil Plate.
24. Band Spring
42. Stock Escutcheon (Recoil plate screw nut).

It also depends if your carbine is a later made Universal carbine. Newer Universal carbines have a non GI trigger group that needs a larger opening on the stock. plainfield and other aftermarket guns use GI stocks.
