Default M1 Carbine Charging handle specs

Hey guys, forgive me for not knowing the nomenclature here. but I am wanting to know if any of you have the specs on this.

I would like to know the specs on the tab of the charging handle tab that rides in the receiver rail.

What is the height of the tab supposed to be?

What is the depth of the tab supposed to be as both the front and back of the tab rubs the inside of the receiver rail.

I'd like to find out in case I need to send them in for rework for keeping it tune.

Sorry I'd give you info you asked for here but all my blueprints are back in Phoenix where I am not. If you search this forum, using its search function or better Google, you'll find your answer as this issue has been a recurrent one since the beginning of time.

Sure, I can send an e-mail pic.



But try this first. Right click on the picture and click on "Save image as". It will give you an option of different files. You should have one called "Pictures". Choose that file and click on "Save". You can enlarge it. print it out, etc.


If all that fails, PM me with your e-mail address.

I would be concerned about the 2 guide lugs on the Slide/op-rod/charging handle) that ride in the 2 slots on the barrel. This is where most of the wear is found on the slides and very few are aware of looking at this critical area.
Using a calipers, see if it reads .543" + .002

This is also what I was wanting in my post just above here...i didn't quite to seem to describe what I wanting as I had to go when I quickly typed that reply. I want to make sure all is good.

Do you know the specs on the track on the side of the receiver as well as the lug is reading at new condition, but want to make sure the track is in good order too.

Thanks
Patriot
