I figured it might be fun to have a thread where everyone can share photos of carbines

The (loose) rules:
Only one photo post a day! This means if someone else posted you should try the next day.

Followup posts and comments are encouraged and unlimited. Followup photos relating to the photo of the day are acceptable. 
Lets try and keep it to the picture of that day. I understand some do not visit every day. So lets try to keep it to recent posts. Not a hard rule but may be less confusing.

Lets keep it to vintage photos. This can be your pictures from service, pictures found on the web or news articles or advertisements.  old photos of family and carbines are acceptable. 

This is not limited to USGI carbines if vintage.

If you like a posters picture please use the thanks button on the upper right of the post. Some mobile devices may not display the button.

It will be interesting to see which is the most popular picture

Lets see how many days this can be kept going!

Day 1
Here is a photo of a my uncle from his time in the service.
this had to be from the late 50s to early 60s.
No bayonet lug?

Great photo , Your uncle looks like he's having a good time right there . Look at the shine on those boots ..Could that be a type 2 barrel band and a pot belly stock ?

Day 2

Here's a candidate for Day 2. Found on the internet titled "A soldier sleeps in the sun". Any ideas about the location or the branch of service? Notice the ragged sling?

I say Army, if a Marine I would expect to see USMC and an Eagle, Globe and Anchor on his left breast pocket.

I believe that picture was in one of the newsletters. IIRC it was taken in Italy.

Handguard does appear deep groove.

First Thx JP Thumbs Up for attaching the enlarged link.

Being able to look at it magnified I can see the barrel band is a 3 weld.
I believe I can even see a P stamp on the barrel.
See how the sling is attached differently than recommended.
Not positive but the sling keeper (buckle) appears to be the round style.
Fraying noted.... Can't see enough of the slings tip to be sure it's a C tip. Maybe a D tip? But after seeing the Khaki color I'd think it would have to be a C tip.

Is it just me...? 
Or does this GI look a bit like Clint Eastwood from Kelly's Heroes?

Very Fun New Topic,

Thanks All,

Probably 1919a4 or a6. Also possible 1917a1
I know the 1919 could use cloth belts or links. Unsure if 1917a1 used links

Nice Picture Wayne A+,

Wonder if that is a Cloth Belt, If so was it one made by Schlegal?
I didn't know they made Cloth Belts until I read about the efforts put together by Rochester Defense programs. Near the top of page 6 reads:

The looms that made automobile upholstery in peacetime at
the Schlegel Manufacturing Co. on North Goodman Street had to
be completely torn down and redesigned to make machine gun belts.
For months, the company hit “snag after snag in adjusting the machines”
to weave the webbing to the required double thickness.
The company finally succeeded – only to discover that the Army
had changed its specifications and now required a new type of belt!
“That took more tearing down and rebuilding.” Finally, by the summer
of 1943, Schlegel was ready to begin full production. It eventually
produced six million machinegun belts for .30 and .50 caliber
bullets, then switched to production of gun slings.


I haven't verified but was told they were contracted for more during the Korean 'Conflict'

Have a Safe Weekend All,

Thanks New2bras. Makes sense. At first I thought they might have been 12ga. shells for trench gun or riot gun. Makes more sense to be carrying extra ammo for automatic weapon support.

Day 4

From the internet...The caption says:

Soldiers of two wars-both tired.  Tired and dirty after a long march through Italy, Sergeant Norwood Dorman, of Benson, North Carolina, rests at the base of a memorial to Italian soldiers of World War I. Note the imitative pose . . . and the Carbine! (U.S. Army Signal Corps Photo from Press Association)
