M1 Carbine Part 6: Component markings and manufacturers

The Second Italo-Ethiopian War was a military and political success for Mussolini that he soon repeated in Albania in Any details on the overall development of the Carcano can be found in the article linked above. With the adoption of the Carcano long rifle the cavalry was ready to replace their out dated Vetterli black powder carbines. The new action was stocked into a familiar pattern and size, emulating the existing cavalry carbines, and paired with a shorter adjustable sight in to form the Moschetto Modello 91 da Cavalleria. The decision to use these spike bayonets was because Cavalry were issued full length swords and the addition of a knife bayonet to their kit would make for a clattering mess. This is the same consideration we see on the later Japanese Type

White braid band a little grubby Patent leather black peak with brass edge. The pistol has a good working action. It has an overall grey patina. A good solid pistol but there has been some pitting- please see photo.

Fortunately for Feinstein, books and magazines have lots of pictures, as apparently big words like those that are used in drafting new laws or reading and correctly interpreting existing ones are to much for her to grasp. Unbelievably , this isn’t the first time Feinstein and her acolytes have based Federal Law on nothing more then scary images.

This is a laughable and provably false statement. This process and the regulations and penalties are spelled out quite clearly in the National Firearms Act of and the applicable administrative regulations that accompany it. The very same law that Feinstein herself plans to apply to all semiautomatic firearms with her new proposal! It seems the inmates truly are running the asylum in DC.

People in California must be so proud that someone as hopelessly stupid as Feinstein is who represents them in Congress. But its the rest of the Country that pays the price for it. If we are now reduced to such a debasing posture that our elected officials are basing public policy decisions on the pictures in magazines, We the People would be far better off to have the Republic fall apart and start over then risk another day of being infected with and subjected to the ideas of Feinstein and her ilk.

The M1 Carbine was to take the place of pistols for vehicle drivers, members of crew served weapons such as artillery, anti-aircraft etc , NCOs and other secondary roles to the frontline infantryman. Despite its lack of ‘knockdown’ power, it was popular, primarily due to its handiness and lightweight and was seen in front line usage in both the European and Pacific Theaters of World War II.

There is no photographic evidence of any soldiers carrying or using the M1 Carbine or M1A1 paratrooper Carbine between and early , with a bayonet lug. The version with the bayonet lug, and the replacement of the “L” peep sight with the adjustable windage rear sight was an undesignated upgrade to the model and was not given a separate model number. This upgrade officially started in late , but were only seen in the field in late , in the very last months of the war.

Occupation troops did, however, get this version of the gun.

Site Map Due to U. K legislation, we cannot and do not post deactivated weapons outside of the United Kingdom. Points on the terms ‘Old’ and ‘New’ Specification Deactivation. Old specification refers to weapons which have been deactivated before October whilst weapons deactivated after October are known as new specification deactivated weapons.

Old specification deactivation rules permitted submachine guns and semi automatic rifles to have working actions able to be fully stripped down to their major component parts. Revolvers were permitted to have unblocked cylinders enabling inert ammunition to be put into the cylinder but under the new specification rules this was no longer permitted.

New specification rules now legally oblige that submachine guns and semi automatic rifles have all their actions cut and welded to the weapon body prohibiting cocking or dry firing. Cocking handles and levers may be left free running in their groves. Change in law on deactivated firearms came into force on 8 April , see the below link for the current situation.

The last new one was made in , IIRC. Since, the US military has been using them, in Korea and early on in Viet Nam, and since then many of them have been loaned to other countries. When the CMP got them back, they went over them and sorted out the good ones, and re-arsenalled–again–any that were defective. That is, they broke the worst ones down for parts, and fixed the not-so-bad ones with the parts.

And any carbines that have ever been re-arsenalled, also got the newer, better, rear sight, the improved rotary safety, and the wider front handguard band with the bayonet lug, which is sturdier and makes the carbine a better shooter. IMHO, this re-arsenalling does nothing to detract from the having of a piece of gear that was made for The Big One, and probably used in it. All the fix-it-up parts come from other carbines of the same age. There have been commercial ones, made up of bought-up surplus parts.

These are not regarded as being as good as the original-and-genuine military items. If you got one with a like-new bbl, the bbl it came back to the US with was shot out, corroded, or damaged in some way. It would seem that you got a particularly nice one, with that like-new bbl. Now, if what you wanted was a collectors’ item, then you’ll have to get it from another source than the CMP.

There are “original” and un-re-arsenalled M1 Carbines around, with narrow handguard bands, flip-up rear sights, and pushbutton safeties.
