Here are the different types of operating slides classified using the Carbine Club system and the system used by Riesch in US M1 Carbines, Wartime Production:









I bought two slides just to make these pictures and put some time into taking and composing the shots so if you share them please give credit where credit is due. Thanks.

I have been trying to ID the slide on my carbine for a bit. I have not had it too long but it does not seem to match any picture. it has the same shape as the type 5, angled toward the end of the barrel but it does not have the groove on the side that the type VI has.

however on mine, the top part that usually has the flat piece (that goes over the bore) has no flat on it at all. it is completely curved all the way to the top. it has no markings on it anywhere. i can post a pic if i have to... just not at work!

if its anything, i have an old saginaw sg and this is the only piece that looks younger than the rest of the rifle. it does function 100%

i guess i should of posed this as a question. that was my original intent lol.

does anybody know of these or have seen which type of slide has a fully rounded top instead of a straight cut? like I said, it functions 100% and i will probably end up leaving it but it would be cool to know.

Hard to say without pictures. It might be a commercial part.

ahh... after looking, it seems to be a iver johnson or one of its sub contracted ones or however they did it. i made a mistake, it is a type 6 so that was giving me problems. i took it apart again and saw the groove on the side i didnt remember being there.

any rate, yes, not USGI. thx for the help!
