The Origin of - “The Carbine Club”

In 1975, five acquaintances who had met at a gun show and discussed their mutual interest in carbines,

decided to pool their observations in order to advance their knowledge of the many carbine variations,

production changes, parts code markings, and accessories. A data sheet was designed to document their

observations and standardize their terminology, and these fellows began to collect and share as much

information as they could find. It was truly a cooperative effort.

The Carbine Club’s first newsletter was published in November 1976, composed on a typewriter and 6

pages long, and distributed to about 25 members. As the idea of collecting carbines grew over the years,

a large bank of data was accumulated, and The Carbine Club became the foremost authority on the

production history of the M1 Carbine. Newsletter #384 was published in October 2015.

With the changing times and members’ interest in sharing carbine information via the internet, it was

decided to evolve the Carbine Club into an online format only, beginning in January 2016. Despite the

fact that we’ve been researching and studying the Carbine for 40 years, there is still much to be learned,

and new variations of carbine markings are still being discovered in the closets of veterans.

If you cannot find the answer to your question on this website, or are eager to learn more, you are

invited to visit the forum. The forum will be a “work in progress” through 2016,

and your patience will be appreciated. Volunteers are always welcome. Good Collecting!
