This is my first post. I found some info on here that I found helpful when doing some research on the M1 Carbine. I was recently able to trade for a Quality Hardware M1 Carbine, but would like to know more about it. I understand that Quality Hardware just made receivers. Is that correct? Some of the other markings I have found are:

Barrel - Rockola
Trigger - K.R.
Slide - H
Recoil Plate - DI
Front Band - AMCO
Oiler - SI

Where else do I need to look for markings? I haven't had time to fully strip it yet, but will soon. I'll also try to get some pics up. It is just something to hold these guns and image what they were through. Gives one an entire new level of respect for the men that carried these.

CMP's Carbine Forum is the best place to find such answers, although somone here may also have them?

If you want to know anything about M1 Carbines or Garands, this is the book to buy.

I repeatedly checked the CMP forums, but I could not get to them come up. I was getting an error message. I will try it again tonight.
