Is it because they only produced 5.6% of the 6million? There always sold out. I have a winchester bolt, and winchester slide, I wana trade for the same parts , but quality hardware only. Parts are in great shape. I tried numrich, sarco, I think numrich has a slide left hut do not know if its type 2 or3 not sure what my carbine will need to be correct. I have all other parts just missing those two. Thanks.

You have to remember that almost all parts on a carbine are serial number dependent. Like your asking if your slide should be a type 2 or 3. It all depends on your serial number.

If I give you the serial number, could you give me a rundown on what all my parts should be? I would be very thankfull since I don't have but 1 small carbine manual. I'm gana restore it. And in the process of building 2 fulton armory carbines. Iwant to shoot allot. I already have half the parts, besides the stocks, and barrels. My shop is set up. Just got done doing a 6mm06 ackley imp, on a gew 98. It was my grandmas hunting rifle, in 6mm rem. And I have 500 rounds of nickle 30cal brass on the way .. also I'm shooting a competition in wausau wisconsin june 22nd.. 600yrds shooting in the semi custom bracket. I have allot on my plate right now, so every paycheck I buy a few things. Its like xmas around my house. That's what my girlfriend says, though nothing for her lol.. my serial num is 19203xx quality hardware. I know it will take you some time to type in all the info.. the bad part about being a hooby gunsmith, is every one wants handloads, or trigger jobs, glass bedding, muzzle breaks installed, ect,, cause I'm there friend.. I got allot of my own stuff to do. They always want me to do it for next to nothing.. when I first started gunsmithing, I would say yes to anyone so I could learn.. that has changed since I know what I'm doing.. so mr, tuna... can you help me out on all the correct types.. I already found a q-rmc stock for it. Let me know thanks allot. I am a person,, that if you help me I will help you.

hould just by a couple books on the

Sorry for the long post but just trying to explain, got allot going on,, hard to do research. when I'm handloading for a match, or rechambering a rifle, and handload carbine rounds, in a single stage press.So if you could do the part of telling me what I need, to make it a safe queen!! It was my grandpas,, my grandma said if he was alive he'd proly just shoot it.. I'm not trying to get 4 or 5grand.. just get it done,,put it in the safe and maybe trade her for something I migh!t really want, , or need. My grandma said today that she thinks if he knew the price of carbines woulda went up so fast,,,,he'd restore it to,, and I already know I have at least the bolt and trigger housing to find.. have winchester bolt, and a . u. In the trigger housing. Don't know what the u is. I was ana guess, underwood.. so if everyone helped me it would be like the forum building/restoring a carbine. And some one explain, this photobucket thing.. I can post pics on face book. That's an idea I could post them on fb for tuna, since in my opinion know the most about years, dates, stamps, ect,, I'm new to the forum, but that's wht I got out of it.. I got the barrel wrench and vise.. and I've had a set of go, no ,go gauges..for 5 years.reason I don't have a carbine book, is,,, I have a library of books, magazines, reloading books, old 1970 guns in ammo mags. I started to become a book, magazine,, hoarder!!! I'm not trying to brag either.. and I know when to ask for help.

Bruno, Sorry I have not been able to get back to you on what you may need. Before you should really think about restoring the carbine you should look at the rear sight. If it's an adjustable rear sight then check to see if it's been staked in place in the dove tail. If it has the carbine really is not a candidate for restoration as it's all but impossible to hide the stake marks. If there are no punch stake marks then you can restore your carbine easily. You will need deep pockets to get it right and at the prices of parts now I mean real deep pockets. If you do get a book I would suggest US M1 Carbines wartime production by Craig Riech. He does a pretty good job of dating parts by serial number range. There are a few errors here and there in the book but with each edition he tries to update it. Oh and your carbine dates to about October 1943. How is your barrel marked?

Barrel marked buffalo arms 9-1943 so I know that is origanal. And no it is not staked in place. I also know I will need to spend a lot of cash. I'm willing to grab a part here and there every paycheck. Took apart the bolt and extractor marked ltq, most things are marked ltq. Besides the slide and bolt, and stock. Like I said don't know if it should be all type 2 or 3 parts. I'm ready to break down and buy a book, always use it to help other ppl out.

A type 3 slide would be correct for your serial number.
