Thanks but need more info on the extender because not sure about price or how much they are really worth. I was looking at those trying to put m1 carbine collection together. I have an original rock-Ola m1 carbine.

With Millville in business in the mid to late 50's and did sell surplus GI parts do we know if this was a GI produced item or an aftermarket made by Millville (or Plainfield which did some work for them before making their own carbines)?

Not a USGI item. Were you looking to put that on the Rockola?
 
Edit to add: This was reported in CCNL 230

I would not recommend installing this on a WWII era M1 Carbine. In my opinion, it's an early aftermarket curiosity that may enhance a collection, but installing it will reduce the value of, and damage an original M1 Carbine. Most firearm collecting genres include items like this that are fun to look back upon, and collect as accessories or oddities. Back when this was being sold, M1 Carbines had no real collector value, or appreciation.

If you want to install it, put it on an aftermarket M1 Carbine.

I agree, you would be destroying the authenticity, value and heritage of a true American collectable.

here is one of those extensions attached to a Rockola barrel.
 
 
I wonder how you are supposed to get the barrel band on?
 
Millville Ordnance was involved in all kinds of surplus and commercial gun stuff, not just carbine parts. Their ads in Shotgun News in the early 60's typically ran 2-5 full pages of small parts.
 
Millville was not the only one making these extensions. Most I have seen are rotated 90 degrees

Simple, sweat the extender off. The clamp should have been put on first.

I have to admit that it looks kind of cool attached to the muzzle. Back when Carbines had little value, I could see adding one on to make it just a bit different in style. The gun world has always had items like this to accessorize our favorite firearms, just like the car world has a multitude of similar items.

Some places like Canada, need a barrel a bit longer than the standard carbine to be legal, this would make it so if permanently attached.

cali201....not true in Canada. Extensions to muzzles are not acceptable to take the M1 carbine off the Restricted list. Our regs require a fully rifled barrel of greater than 18.6" on any semi-auto centre fire rifle to qualify in a class that has no restrictions. Easy to own a USGI M1 carbine here, but in a Restricted classification, ie can only take it to a certified range and shoot it there. Non-restricted allows it into the bush for target practice or hunting. BTW, our 15 and 30 rd mags have to pinned to only allow 5 rds max.

I-J made 20" barrelled carbines in the late 1980's and exported them here, A-O is doing same with 18.6 " now.
