Default My 1st Carbine...question for y'all

Well I have come into temporary possession of an M1 Carbine. This is the first time I've ever really handled one extensively (meaning not in a gunshop). I don't have any books on them and all I know is that it's an M1 Carbine made by what looks like National Postmeter. I've heard things about potbelly stocks, under wood, and other stuff. Enlighten me, what exactly do I have here? http://s1007.photobucket.com/albums/.../M1%20Carbine/

I'm not a collector but it's always interesting to know what kind of parts are on the rifle etc. My impressions are that it is a very handy rifle. Light and easy to use I really like it! I think it would be a great "ranch gun" or even backyard ground hog gun. Heck, if I purchase some reloading dies I might be tempted to shoot in a 200 yard match.

Think I might need to buy one of my own...thanks for looking!

Bill

WARNING, WARNING, .22SHOOTER !!! Just holding one in your hands is dangerous to your wallet and/or CC. Next you will have to shoot it. If you do so, you will be hooked for life. Give it back quickly OR send it to me, I'm already infected. 12 now live in my home.

Actually you have a nice looking carbine. I have the younger brother to yours, 4,116,051. It could be that you have the correct barrel being that it's a Buffalo Arms and a '43 date. The safety and rear sight were up grades during a rebuild some place. All of we carbines lovers would love to see what other parts lurk under the stock. So far it looks great.

Haha thanks for the info JR! I would love to take it apart but as I said it doesn't belong to me.

I might be in big trouble as this rifle is getting shot tomorrow. Check "ask each other" for the post. I'm meeting up with a WWII combat vet.

J.R. Likes to look at the Carbines when there stripped down and naked. I really do think he has a problem............

Hi, my name is Terry, and I collect carbines.

It all started just with that one, years ago......

I thought I could handle it.

I, too, have a NPM with a Buffalo Arms barrel. My receiver heal has a U stamped into it. Is not the type 3 bayonet lug an arsenal upgrade on your NPM?
