All. New guy here.
I just inherited a NPM carbine. This carbine was carried in Nam by US Soldier. Don't know how he brought it back. But he did.

I have it now and am beginning my research.
I do plan to fire this carbine.
I see it is in good condition and I have not yet field stripped. I am waiting for a manual.

I have included two photos here. Comments welcome.

Good looking carbine. What manual are you waiting for? Craig Riesch's book, "U.S. M1 Carbines, Wartime Production" would be a good starting point for identifying the pedigree of the components of your rifle. You can get it from Amazon for $22.95 (new). It has a pretty good dis-assembly/assembly section in the appendix, too.

You can buy the book direct from publisher about $5 cheaper. I've seen Amazon mark up over 100%!
