You are correct to do research for the widow.

From what I see, of the pictures above, the M1A1 stock is a reproduction. Also the stock is an "M2 potbelly" which appears to be an Israeli return (the stamped serial on the stock).

As stated above, carbines are very easy to break down into their basic groups. I would encourage you to download and fill out the "data sheet" used by the Carbine Club. (No, I am not a member.) They allow the use of the sheet and it is the standard by which carbines parts are identified and recorded. Having the sheets filled out will make appraising value and selling the carbines easier.

I am curious about the carbine which is crated up. Remember the group here loves pictures, even of "regular" carbines, so please feel free to post and share.

Hope that helps...
