The serial number dates to about October 1943. The slide was made by Union Switch and Signal for NPM is correct for your time frame also. A lot of the parts you listed are of course from other carbines. The stock being an early Winchester would be in demand by collectors. If the rear sight is not staked in place it would be a fine candidate for a restoration. Oh and one never ever has enough carbines even if it's number 50 you just bought.

Thank you Tuna and shadycon. It would be nice to have an all correct NPM. But on the other hand it seems that these parts are together since many decades. It was little changed after war when the german got the carbine in their inventory. They replaced some trigger housing parts, the bolt, changed and sanded the stock and fixed a brand new USGI sling with a QHMC swivel. And then they put the carbine in a rack and forgot it I think I leave it as it is and send some pics and datasheet to Mr. Mock from bavariancarbines.
