Hello to ALL , 1st.... new guy here , like the site a lot , great info and help , been chatting with floydthecat about a Carbine I thought might be a good buy.....
 
was looking for a shooter grade and may have stumbled into a collector , FTC has helped me with what to look for and what is correct or not on this Carbine.. so..
QH , Rock-ola barrel stamped 6-43 , type 1 , 1st block SN# 1595XXX
most of the parts seem to be marked as should be , am waiting for it to "get out of jail" 10 day wait in Ca.
when I get my hands on it and break it down to see if "all" the parts are correct I'll get FTC to help me put a sheet together and post it with pic's
 
Last M1 carbine I had was well over 25yrs ago , and sold that Postal Meter that I should have keepCry...live and learn..
 
great site and info ! ................................... Semper Fi.

The important thing is that the Carbine cools down for the next 10 days so it doesn't do something dangerous. Because after 75 years of normalcy (and possibly having been shipped straight to someone's house once in the past) it might be overdue for something.

I have a gut feeling this one is going to be well worth the wait. Indications are it’s “right”.
