I just have to show her off. 1943 IBM Barrel, Op rod is also IBM. Trigger group and Bolt look to be inland. I started a thread in the WTB forum "WTB IBM M1 carbine" and there was only one reply from a guy in nor cal. Turned out to be a great deal with the extras.

I took it to Angeles today for a test run and to sight it in. I had never shot one before today and was shocked how light it is, It shoots a little high even with the elevation all way down but was able to compensate with sight picture.

It cycled perfect with zero FTF(150 rounds) It groups really nice too at 100yds for a 67 year old barrel and surplus ammo.

Plus you can shoot these at the steel pistol targets at Angeles although I did not today.

Pictures.....

ahhh...the M1 Carbine...nice. I have one, '43 Underwood, I will never sell it. I love it, have had it for 5 + years now.
I told my daughter the other day, who is 18, that when I die, I want her to have it...she looked at me and told me she would rather have me alive...

Ok I totally get her that she wants you alive... She is a sweet girl obviously but does she want the rifle? If not I will take it at that point. :) Jk :D
