I attended a meeting of the American Society of Arms Collectors (ASAC) in Daytona Beach, FL last month, and wanted to share a Carbine display that was featured there. This prototype M1E7 Carbine formerly belonged to an ASAC member who passed away in 2004, who had previously worked at Aberdeen Proving Ground up until 1955, where this Carbine was tested in 1943. Included in the display were M1E7 scope bridge patterns and rings, as can be seen in the photos below. Any comments are welcomed.






Enjoy!
