Here are my War Babies
Left is a Inland Underwood. Right is a very early IBM, the 178th to be produced to be exact (according to Larry Ruth's book); all markings are hand stamped.
Both of these beauties came from CMP and were luck of the draw. Folks on the CMP boards tell me these should have gone to auction but I got them as general service grades when they were offered.

How can you tell the difference between an M-2 and an M-1? Without firing it of course.

That would be the selector switch on the left side of the receiver.

and M-1's are normally stamped M-1 on the receiver and M-2's are normally stamped M-2 on the receiver.

Wonder why they just don't demill M-2's in semi auto M-1's

Any M1 can be converted to an M2. M2s cannot be "demilled" since all the full auto parts are carried in the trigger housing. An M2 triggerhousing can be installed on any M1 receiver.
There is no difference between an M1 receiver and an M2 receiver, other than being marked "M2". Even though the full auto parts on the trigger housing, the ATF still considers the M2 receiver to be the controled part under the "once a full auto, always a full auto" rule.

There are websites that list M1 Carbines, I don't see a Springfield listed.
