Answer to trivia question. In addition to being a butt stock are three other uses. The first use, removing the barrel nut, was previously answered. Te second use is a cleaning rod, the ends of the stock are internally threaded to accomodate a bore cleaning brush. The third use is a magazine loader. Two pictures demonstrate barrel removal and magazine loading.

Correct, flats were milled on the barrel nut, so with the stock removed, squeezing the stock legs against the barrel nut flats gave the leverage to remove the barrel nut which secures the barrel in place. What two other uses are there for the M3/M3A1 stock?

Correct. The M1 carbine and the M3 submachine gun share the M1 carbine's oiler and sling. The M3A1 submachine gun has it's own oiler built into the grip and only uses the M1 carbine sling.

Clue to answering the trivia question. This is a picture of the M1 carbine oiler issued with the still unidentified weapon. There is one other item the M1 carbine has in common with this weapon. What is the other item and the weapon.

"... have in common?"   The carbine's type 2 rear sight and the rear sight on the M1903A3 are similar but not the same.   Both have a dovetail (reverse execution, one to the other), similar protective wings, a windage knob, and an aperture that slides up a ramp (the M1903A3 ramp goes to 800y or past, the carbine's ramp goes to 300y).

That short butt plate screw was used on many weapons. I believe the Thompson, M1917 and others. When I searched the part number it was even used on a tank. Seem it was a standard  type screw used by ordnance in many applications.

Incorrect answer, not the M1 rifle. I believe the M1 rifle and 03 Springfield rifle use the same long butt plate screw.

No, the other weapon is unrelated to the M1 carbine or it's variations.
