M1 Carbine - repro parts

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Can anyone tell me about what year repro parts started pouring in to the US for the M1 Carbine? I see so many parts, so cheap, that they must be repro.

 

Thanks,

jim_mi

Huey - thanks for the heads-up on the carbine collectors club, neat site.

 

Garandy - thanks for the info. Unfortunately that means repro parts have had time to "age", so some will appear more authentis. Too bad...

I was stationed in California in the Mid 80s and a guy used to sell parts at the big shows. His name was synonymous with repro parts even back then.

Thanks, Yooper. I didn't realize that these parts had been around that long.
