Default How to check serial numbers for m1 carbines

I saw the thread on " Check Srial Numbers" but unless I missed it, it seems to only cover Garands. Is there a way to check the serial number for M1 carbines based on the reciever serial number ? I'm curious if a rifle was rebarrled the date on the barrel would not be the same as when the reciever was manufactured. If this is a dumb question or has been covered I apoligize but am new at this
