My new to me carbine. My 2nd one. Think I did pretty good. Has a RMC marked stock, and undated Rock-Ola Barrel which indicates its correct. Still trying to get the bugs sorted out with it so I can shoot it successfully. What do yall think about it?

With some help from fellow forum members, I discovered the issue. It was not the carbine, but actually the ammo. The chamber is so tight, that the commercial ammo would stick, but not military surplus. Armscor vs Korean milsurp ammo using the plunk test.

I don't see anything that jumps out to me that should not be there.  Some push safeties are marked inside on the flat.  And the stamps can be very light.  So clean it real good and strong light.
GE-Q rear sights have been faked so a close up of the rear sight would be needed to tell for sure.  But its location in the dovetail is correct for a real sight.

Thanks, i think its purdy. Its got a cool patina, seems more "used" than my other carbines. Also, the stock is my favorite.

Thanks, I am pretty fond of it. And yes, I think i see one difference, but nothing more than that. If anyone cares to tell me more signs to look for, please PM me :) I have learned a couple of things, but IDK how good they are on sights that are not installed

I like the look of that quarter-sawn walnut stock. Don’t see that slice too often.

Sorry for the woodworking nerd in me. I like quartersawn wood in furniture, and it is unusual to see it in gunstocks. Plain-sawn (AKA flat-sawn) wood is often beautiful on gun stocks. 
Here are a couple pics showing the how the grain appearance can differ depending on how it is milled from the log (see John’s link above).
