Default Couple of Carbine & Mag Questions

I have three carbines. A Auto Ordinance for friends to shoot, a Fulton with Inland receiver and a CMP Inland. I bought the Fulton about 10 years ago and now understand they make their own receivers. Is the old Fulton with the Inland receiver more sort after than the ones with FA receivers? I also have many 15 round GI mags but they do not have a follower to keep the bolt open after the last shot. I notice my GI 30 round mag followers keep the bolt open and the new manufacture mags from Fulton and AO also have the last round open follower. Was this normal for WW II & Korea to have the action close after the last round except for the 30 rounders? Thanks, Mike

confused: A carbine is classified or Id'd to maker via the receiver, for example if you have a Winchester receiver with an Underwood barrel it is considered a Winchester. If you have a "Fulton carbine" with an Inland receiver is it not an Inland? Do you mean it is an Inland and re barreled by Fulton Armory??

Probably an INLAND-barrelled carbine

http://www.fulton-armory.com/M1-Carbine.aspx States a USGI receiver


http://www.fulton-armory.com/carbineuscal30m1.aspx states a Fulton mil spec receiver.

How about a answer about the last shot bolt open ?

As I understand it, the bolt hold-open follower was introduced with the USGI 30-round mags for the M2 carbine. Yes, it's normal for earlier mags to not have this feature.

So it is an Inalnd with a new, Fulton barrel. A GI reciever will always hold more value, IMO, then a Fulton reciever. With an Inland it can be rebarreled again to an Inland barrel. Your most valuable? The CMP All GI carbine.

Generally speaking, yes. Also, for what it's worth, the GI receiver carbines from Fulton are normally priced a bit higher than the FA receiver carbines at the FA store at Perry.

Yes

Your most valuable carbine is the one that performs the best.

I have a Fulton from a really long time ago, and a new Fulton barreled action bought in the last year. The old one is an Inland receiver and barrel, and a flat bolt. The new one is a Fulton marked receiver and unmarked barrel.

Got those too when the getting was good. CMP didn't have any around 10 years ago when I bought the Fulton and Auto Ordinance. Bought a few from the CMP when the getting was good. Too bad it didn't last too long. Everyone that shoots one falls in love with them. Anyone know if there are any more rumored to be coming in the near future?

Thanks. That seems odd that the 15 round mags had no bolt open followers. Thanks for all the answers folks.
