    M1 Carbine

    Type 1 Universal M1 Carbine. This is one of the earlier universal carbines that used some USGI parts and is interchangeable with USGI parts, so a true carbine to the pattern.

    Currently E cat, I guess it could be changed to A cat if you wanted to butcher the bayonet lug. I have no mags for it, the two I have are on loan from a mate. You can get A cat mags off Burely Arms and E cat ones off Brownells.

    Full disclosure - I found the the barrel isn't tight fitting on the receiver. It still shoots, but I intended to have a Smith make up a timing washer to give it a tight fit, because it probably isn't ideal. I had numerous stoppages, which I am confident are attributable to the old worn magazines I have been using (worn feed lips).

    I am after $900 for it as is. These are getting harder to find and in my experiance looking, people are asking moon beams for original USGI ones (double my price).

    @Tikka7mm08 I haven't costed it, but I can't imagine it would be a big job for a competent smith? Per CMP forums it seems like a common job to do with out of index barrels on Garands and Carbines Barrel to receiver fit issues [Archive] - CMP Forums
