This is for sale by a milsurp dealer.
I'm not finding a mention of it in the forum or on the main website.

Mechanical Training
US Carbine, Caliber .30, M-2
Notes for Troop Instructors

Compiled by 1st Lt. John T. Carley Jr and 1st Lt. Jared W. Morrow
Published by the Infantry Journal Press
Washington D.C.,  c. 1950

This is the second time I've come across the Infantry Journal Press.  
Anyone know more about them?



The closest listing on the club website is:
MTP3-49
Army Infantry School, Lesson Plan: Carbine Cal. .30, M1 Mechanical Training, 6 hours
15 Dec 1942

If someone here is interested in training and related docs, let me know.  I was going to buy it with some other stuff but then decided the other items were not in as good a condition as I wanted. 
I assume there is no library of carbine books, films, etc., just personal research collections.  Correct me if I'm wrong.

Hello Matt_X,

I'm interested if this item might still be available for sale. Please PM me if you have a link.

I'm not aware of a public library with Carbine books.

David. That's great. 
I'm finding all of the support related stuff as interesting as the weapons. 
I'll get you the link.

edit: It was sold.  :(

Hi Matt,

Thank you for your PM's, and for relying to my inquiry.

I find the support related items more interesting than the weapons, in most cases. Manuals have always been my keen area of interest. Paper items associated with weapons, including the Carbine, provide snapshots in time as to their development, status, accessories, modifications, use, and can provide insight into how misunderstandings or errors became perpetuated.

Thanks Again!
