i picked this up Saturday and the Thai military HOWA M1 carbine below, this is a correct Standard Products carbine that once belonged to the Bavarian Forestry Police it had a non-correct sling swivel screw and a rotary safety i replaced the rotary with a type 3 three which would be correct for the vintage, but i kept the parts to go back on or with the carbine if i decide to ever sell it in the future the parts will go with the new owner.

i was surprised to see that is is as correct as it is, i've seen and heard of these rifles being as manufactured but never thought i'd find one.

the Germans coated the stocks with a sealant of some type the cartouche would show better if the stuff wasn't applied to the stock

Stu, you find all the best carbines! This is a very nice example, especially of a Bavarian. I think its probably the first all correct one ive seen. Thanks for the photos!

thanks Greg, most of them are fairly correct but the ones i've encountered had been pilfered for there early parts on a wild guess, this is the first one outside of the correct ones in pics on Jim Mocks Bavarian Carbine web site or one of the gun auction sites that i actually have run across and i figured i'd better snap it up. the cartouche on the stock stands out a bit better without all the shellac on it.
