Arrived at my LGS on 5-13-22; lucky for me, Jason wasn't there when I picked it up.
Came to me in a pot-belly stock; some members might recognize it's new furniture.
It was pretty filthy but cleaned up well. The internals revealed what I was hoping for.
A big sincere thank you to the long time member for pinging me on this one. The listing pictures were not great but was enough there to set off the carbine radar.

Looks sweet! Is that the RMC-B stock set she's wearing?

Thank you fellows.
I had just about given up hope of ever acquiring one, that would both benefit from and also be at the level of originality and condition for the RMC B furniture. I feel like it was found and couldn't be more satisfied.
I will post some additional photos of the internals & markings that may be of interest.

Yes was a new IBM barrel flat marking for me; also the marking on the bottom of the right lug I had not seen before. Might be an 'A' like that seen under left lug or maybe triangle?

There have been others spotted.

very nice!  Kudos and congrats on finding this!  If it’s not too much to ask, what was the price?   I love these old carbines, if i saw one at our LGS, I’d be sorely tempted as long as the price wasn’t outrageous.
