M1 Carbine Picture Thread
 
Why should the Garand folks have all the fun?!?! I think we need our own Carbine Picture Thread!!! :D

I'll start.

Quality Products Rack Grade (picked up from the South Store in Dec '09)
Configured exactly (ok, close enough) like the Carbine my Granddad carried during the war.

The little kid in front of my Granddad has his Carbine.

Left to right in the order received:
Standard Products w/Underwood barrel, really nice WRA stock, maybe DCM gun, nice parkerized finish, private purchase (saw this being picked up when I dropped my first carbine, also a SP, at gunsmith, now it is mine and sold the other).
IBM w/IBM barrel, mixmaster came in a M2 Potbelly, now wearing a JL-B stock, rack grade via CMP, dark finish maybe Greek? MW of 4 but surprisingly good shooter.
Underwood w/Underwood barrel, many Underwood parts, came with above mentioned JL-B stock, now in MU stock, Inland trigger housing stamped LGK 00, service grade via CMP is my main shooter and the only one with a round bolt. I recently put together an Underwood trigger group with all Underwood parts correct to manufacture date. I kept the previous Inland trigger housing & post-war guts so I can slap it back in if so desired.
Rock-ola w/Rock barrel, service grade via CMP, late war replacement WRA stock, heavily "Austrianized" mixmaster w/LGKI stamp and plum trigger housing. Leaving as received.
Inland w/Inland barrel, Bavarian Rural Police w/flip, German highwood stock, mixmaster with LGK 00 stamped Underwood trigger housing, Type A band, CMP service grade. Leaving as received. Asked for anything other than an Inland, so naturally CMP sent me an Inland.
Standard Products w/Underwood barrel, completely correct except for a four rivet replacement handguard (now replaced with correct one), stock is S-HB, flip & Type A band, private purchase pretty sure a "duffel-bag" gun. The carbine I'm most proud of.

A SG Winchester will soon join the platoon.

Here's my cache - all SG except for the fake M1A1 - stock was cracked in two places so I got a repo folder for it, but, rest of the rifle was SG+ (SS grab). Sent in order for SG S'G', but, sounds like I missed the cut. :cry:

Some nice looking carbines here. Be careful if you are storing your carbines, or any rifle, with a canvas muzzle cover on them. The canvas can attract moisture and may cause rust to form on the barrel. Just be sure to oil and check on occasion.
