NEW VIDEOS ADDED - M1 Carbine Assembley & Disassembly Videos
Happy New Year!

New Video added

Complete Trigger Housing Disassembly / Reassembly Video:


I finally followed through on an idea I had to make videos of assembly and disassembly of the M1 Carbine after people writing about using the trigger spring tool to put the trigger in. I have a way without using it saving you $. Also there are a few more videos people get stuck on.

If the videos help you please leave a comment on the video website.

Thanks, Rob

List of Videos:

(With your feedback I might do more, let me know, I wouldn't do barrels and receiver jobs due to liability but I could do something on like how to inspect these areas if you considering a purchase.)

Use the hammer to push back the sear, I learned something. My fingers thank you.
I have to watch the trigger spring again, I'm not sure you didn't use mirrors on that one.

nice,very nice the older i get the easier is better.on the trigger spring and hammer,line it up like you have it.maybe the trigger spring not as down as you have it take your right thumb push the spring down at the same time with your left thumb snap the the trigger your find the trigger and spring seated.might take a few times catch and anybody on board will catch right on. keep videos up great job.

Nice. In the past, I've fashioned a hook from a paperclip to draw the trigger spring into that hole, but this seems to be a better way ...

Here's the HOWTO I want to see, the way they did it at Standard Products

Very well done!
Thank you for your effort, very impressive vidios.

Those video's are excellent, they are so good for a old man like me. I would enjoy more. Guy's like you are what make CMP forums the best place to spend time.
Thank You very much.

Sounds good folks. I was thinking for the next round:

Front sight removal & installation

Gas Piston & Nut removal & installation

Rear sight removal & installation

Barrel band spring removal & installation

Recoil plate trick (for getting the gun closer to the stock when sliding the barrel band over)

And thanks for the positive responses, Rob

Yeah, the picture quality is great and from what I watched you covered the steps necessary to perform the task. Well done.

I place the camera from the same perspective as I see things (and the viewer too) because it just makes more sense.

Accidentally shot the video in High Definition (what a pain in the 4th point of contact to upload, it took me 2 days to do it.)

Thanks USAR6, Dan Mac, meplat, funcun1, 6 Ring, and tenOC for your comments.

Excellent videos--very well done. Concise and to the point. I think they are all helpful, but I really enjoyed the video showing how to take the bolt out without taking the rifle down completely. I can see a lot of situations where that is going to be extremely useful....Thanks for sharing....JKL
