My first post! Here's an unusual post-war manufactured carbine oiler. This has special interest to me as Verson is down the street from my shop, and my grandfather convinced Verson to open a new plant in Dallas after the war. This way he had a press manufacturer down the street from our machine shop. Enjoy

Thanks Chuck. My favorite carbines are post war arsenal refits that are unmessed. They can be beautiful rifles in their own right. I've wasted plenty on carbines turning them back into WW2 configuration to only wind up with an ugly franken-gun.

A refreshing perspective not often encountered...Keep the history alive!

I too couldn't agree more about leaving a nice, or for that matter any, rebuilt/upgrade M1 Carbine as is.  Way too many bad restorations out there. That is a super nice stock with a great rebuild SA marking.

 

Those P&B oilers are a nice variation to have in a carbine collection.  Nice stuff you have there.
