I inherited this from my uncle, I have no idea when he acquired it but suspect sometime in late 50s to early 60s, I have had it for 17 years and just fire it for the first time Wed. I would like to know what it is worth as I plan on selling it so I can get something with an optic sight, It is in amazing condition for being made in 1943.

Hi Edward and welcome to the M1 carbine forum from New Mexico!

I also have an early QHMC carbine that's about the same configuration as yours. I paid $900 two years ago at a local gun show. The "I" cut stock is a premium, particularly if it still has it's ordinance stamp and is not marked with a rebuild stamp. Mine was imported from Italy (FAT) through the CMP so it also has some of the original parts (push safety, early mag catch, etc.) and no import marks except for a tiny FAT star just in front of the receiver on the top of the barrel. The FAT armory did replace the flip rear sight and barrel band so it's just like yours.

Condition will make a difference. Mine was in good condition with the original finish and an ME of 2.0.

Good luck on finding a buyer.

Post some photos if you can as that will help sell it for you. The old proverb of 1 picture worth 10,000 words.
