"Original" means as it left the factory when originally manufactured, regardless of whether all its parts were made by a single manufacturer or not. Not dyed purple or engraved or ...

No wartime carbine manufacturer made all the parts required for their own "original" carbine.

In fact, one carbine manufacturer even made NO parts assembled into some of their "original" carbines.

That's why when you hear "all matching" wrt some carbine you're interested in, RUN!
