I recently picked up an early 44 Winchester in near perfect condition. I was shocked to see how nice it was. I'm sure it was a closet queen for many years. The stock markings are solid and correct, none of the fake markings we so often see on too good to be true carbines. One of the old time collectors from my club had it and decided to part with it. Needless to say, it has a place of honor in my collection now. And I'm still collecting M3 trench knives and M4 bayonets to go with them.

If Paul is still around, I think he would be pleased to know I still have that AO/IBM lineout NPM receiver that he sold me. Only these days, it is a complete carbine with correct parts. It isn't what I would call a restoration because I made no effort to make it look like it was all original, just "correct".

BTW, I've been an OGCA member for over 25 years and I remember that display very well.

It is with a SAD heart this announcement is being made. I learned this morning that collector and great friend old59porshe passed away on Oct. 7, 2020. Fred was a great person who served his country and enjoyed the hobby of collecting the M1 Carbine. It was always a pleasure to see him at the National M1 Carbine display I held in Birmingham Alabama. Fred you will never be forgotten by the Carbine crew of Thomas, Ken, Charlie, Kenny, Cooper and myself. RIP my friend until we reunite one day.

Only thing I can say for sure is it will be near impossible to measure up to PBI's display. I watched the Inland video and thought it was fanstastic. Even freeze framed the carbine parts where a trigger housing was shown. Interestingly, it looked finished, but the rear lug was not.


Just let me know when you're ready. I will be happy to get you in the door.

I would not worry too much about trying to measure up to a previous display. No matter what, an M1 Carbine display will be appreciated by many.

OGCA is a members only show. One must be invited. Figure I'll need to have all the things ready before figuring out that part. Not enough hours in the day...


m1a1fan,

I'm fairly certain I can get you an invitation.

I could also sponsor you as a member, and then you could make an entry in the annual display show. The next one is in May, so it's probably too late for that, but maybe next year?

I'm curious about your display racks. Custom made by you or someone else? Set em up, mount each carbine and secure each to the rack. Also like the barrier and think some kind of security staff are a must to keep the overly curious from trying to pick them up in spite of the signs.

Was anything inside of the M1A1 ammo box? Just wondering how the ammo would have been stored inside the box.


m1a1fan,

I'd encourage a Carbine display effort. OGCA is a good starting point, and with the controlled membership, you don't have to worry much about people trying to handle the displayed items. You still need to keep your guard up, but it's generally not an issue. We have done many OGCA Thompson displays, with the most recent one last July.

I will be participating in my 9th NRA Convention display with The American Thompson Association in Indianapolis next month. If you, or anyone else who is interested in displaying are planning to attend, please stop by and say hello. I will have on a suit and a nametag, and will be there with the display most of the time on all 3 days. All of us in TATA could provide insight into what's needed to display firearms for tens of thousands of people to view.

One thing I'll say about doing displays...At almost every NRA Convention, some kind of treasure, or valuable information becomes known because of the "public" venue. We've saved a couple of transferable Thompsons, and had rare items such as an FBI Thompson brass deflector come forth, among other things. I would expect Carbine items would be even more prevalent. When you're at an NRA Convention, you get a pretty deep participation of NRA members in the area, and many of them attend on multiple days. So, if they see your Carbine display, and have something Carbine related, they tend to approach and talk about it, and sometimes they'll bring in their item the next day. It's kind of a unique opportunity, and since you've gone to the trouble of setting up a display, are approachable, and are considered a subject matter expert under the circumstances, unique opportunities may arise.

For anyone interested here is an article on what the manufacturers look like "today". It's in the "Newsworthy Items" section on the forums main page.

http://www.uscarbinecal30.com/forum/where-are-they-today_topic1381.html

I started the thread on displays hoping others would continue to build on the idea of sharing their displays for all to see. So much work goes into them with so much knowledge and history displayed its a shame when logistics, health, costs involved or other legit reasons limit the time the displays are shown.

I'd like to start a thread on museums with the same thing in mind. If someone would like to start a thread on photos of the original prime contractors and sub contractors I think it a great idea. My problem is a lack of time for all I need and want to do with the website and helping with the forum.

Jim

A P.S. with a request for no responses to it, one way or the other.

What started this forum and this website and continues to be our mission is a platform to get people to come together to share information and learn. Along with building on all the work that has already been done to reconstruct the history of the carbines and everything related.

We all have our strengths and weaknesses. Myself included and with me, sometimes to an extreme in both directions. Sometimes I need to remind myself that this forum and website is for pooling our strengths for the good of the mission and all others current and future. Which also involves not letting any weaknesses, momentary or permanent, get in the way of pooling those strengths. We can and do accomplish far more together than as individuals or small groups.

People and opinions are inseparable. Sharing opinions can be constructive and help the learning and understanding (strength). Or it can become a death blow to the entire mission. This is exactly what happened to the website on the history of the Berlin Brigade. All lost to the future. My kids read it before it was gone and were amazed. Their kids won't get too.

If I focus on the criticisms and negatives that come with doing the web pages and the entire website none of this would be here. So I stay focused on why it needs to be here. That "why" is focused on the history with so much yet to be learned, pooling strengths, and the future.

The forum is an extension of this and brought to you by the work of people other than me. The time they have to spend reminding people to stay focused comes with the forum. While also taking away from their research time.

Sometimes I have to remind myself to keep my ego in my pocket for the greater good. Been saying that to myself and trying too long time.

Well now wasn't that fun.  I thought I had clicked on Twitter for a moment.  Enough of that, I have to say I really like the picture of the INLAND plant with their iconic building facade.  I can't remember and didn't look, but if it isn't included maybe someone should add it to the picture thread of all the old carbine plants.

Here is the INLAND film that was played at the display. Watch the film and you will see the Inland plant workers assembling the M1 Carbine. ENJOY  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpsHUGSxCc4
