---Just starting to renew my interest in shooting and guns.

I've started fixing my carbine that didn't fire last time I tried, About 17 years ago.

Came here to learn a little more about my Rifle. Seems to be a popular model cause I have already received offers for it while trying to find a gunsmith to work on it.--- BUT, I'd still like to shoot it a couple of more times before I'd even think about selling it.
Maybe even hunt with it bit.

Hi and welcome from New Mexico!

The best inexpensive resource for info on USGI carbines is Craig Riesch's book, "U.S. Carbines, Wartime Production", about $20-25 on Amazon.

Welcome from Colorado!

If your carbine is a GI version, then Jackp's link is for you.

However, if you have a commercial M1 Carbine, give this link a look.

Welcome from Arizona. I also am new to this forum, but find it grand indeed with all the help from the pro's.
Being an old retired mechanic. It still boils down to.... input given, makes a world of difference for an answer.
These people will help you in a big way. They just need you to give info.
Glad your getting the bug again. Be smart, be safe, and listen to these people.
