So I'm bidding on a M1 Carbine on Gunbroker and can't seem to find any info on this company.

I just want to make sure it is USGI compatible before finalizing the purchase. Any info would be great.

As far as I know, there was only one Carbine made that was not built to the USGI pattern, and that was the Universal Carbine. These had two recoil springs, unlike the GI that has one.

I have a civilian model, built by Iver Johnson. Basically GI, except for the barrel profile. That gave me a little trouble when I mounted a forward rail, but nothing steel putty could not fix.

Thanks that makes sense. I've read many times about the Universal being the only non GI carbine. Well I hope I win this bid because it's a pretty good deal.
