Topic - Italian M1 Carbine info and Requests
Posted: Jun 22 2021 at 9:08am By Pro Libertate
I found it kind of interesting that Midway claimed to have purchased ALL of these rifles from the importer PW Arms in Redmond, WA; however, I recently came across several Gun Broker auctions for M1 Carbines that also had PW import markings from the seller "Veronesi Gunworks". These rifles had a starting bid of $1,200 and a Buy it Now price of $1,400. There were several Winchesters, a couple National Postal Meters (one of which I bought), and numerous Inlands.

It's also intriguing to note the rear sights have been replaced on most of these rifles, yet many of them still exhibit early features you would have expected to have been replaced during arsenaling. Mine has an IP type 2 dogleg hammer, type one barrel band, and push button safety.

It really would be interesting to know the history of these rifles.
