Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #3800379, 30 Carbine, 18" IBM barrel with a very good plus bore that shows a minor pit and some light frosting. The metal surfaces retain 95% arsenal parkerized finish with some silvering on the front sight and some light fading on the exposed edges. The highwood walnut stock rates very good as-cleaned with part of a faint ordnance wheel being visible on the right side of butt, a strong "JL B" marking in the left sling cut, a tight 1 1/4" crack on the rear of handguard, a few dings and handling marks. The recoil plate and safety are unmarked but the remaining parts appear to be of IBM or IBM subcontractor manufacture with the bolt being the round type and possibly later. No magazine is present but a green canvas GI style sling is included. A very good example of an IBM M1 Carbine. (208678-1) {C&R} (1000/1500) SOLD FOR $1,380.00
