Nice rifle, you have. I'm curious as to the stock. Any letters stamped into the sling well of the stock?

I didn't see any. The more I look at the stock I think it may have been sanded and refinished.

I have to admit I am surprised and satisfied with how this rifle shoots. And all that aside it was just downright fun and enjoyable.

I added a few targets: http://s1007.photobucket.com/albums/.../M1%20Carbine/

Shot a nice 5 shot 2" group @ 50 yards and 10 shot 3-1/2"g group @ 100 yards. Not bad at all considering I'm shooting GI ammo with a 12 stage trigger lol.

Hand loads and a trigger tune would definitely shrink group size considerably. But really I'm happy with the way it shoots as is. Fun gun. Too bad I have to return it

under the barrel I know you probably can't read it but maybe since it is a buffalo arms barrel you can tell me?

It's the EXACT stamping an older Inland I sold off last year had on the bottom of the barrel, in the same place. It's a C.A.I. import stamp. More than likely the complete stamp was "C.A.I. Georgia VT.", yours is easier to read than mine. For a long time I thought it was just a rough handling mark. Got an easy to read stamp on a beautiful British .303 made by Savage by the same outfit.

If a person wanted to, they could work that one right out. Anyway, you're very lucky it's not a deeper strike.

Correct! I heard Blue Sky stamping on some Garands were struck so hard as to bulge the inside of the barrel!
