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!

Thanks Meplat...that's is what I was getting at! When it left the factory new it would be hard to tell what parts from other mfg's were on that carbine!
