    I don't know. I have gotten confused. All I can say is you're shooting low so you need to lower the sight blade to get that muzzle up. If you do this with the rear sight on 1, everything will be...

    Oops. Okay, I'd say it had the 'wrong' sight on it after the rebuild and somebody 'corrected' it but didn't bother to sight it in. Yes, I agree, its not really a 'new' sight because they have really...

    There it is. I can't believe the discussion continues as if the question were not answered. Look in your carbine ordnance manuals to see exactly how to trim the sight blade at a slight angle. You...

    I don't think that's a lot for a nice striped wood set, as long as it wasn't done with a torch or stain last year.

    Its TUNG oil. And you don't know how to use RLO judging by the comments. RLO is SPARINGLY applied to the wood using a small cloth like a rifle cleaning patch. It is absorbed by the wood fairly...

    If 7.62x39 did not replace the .30 Carbine, neither will .300BLK, which is most useful with a suppressor in the subsonic loading. As a full-speed rifle round, .300 and 7.62x39 are ballistically very...

    Two ways to go to clean. One, only if you are prepared to stain the stock because it will need it; take a piece of folded terry cloth and some lacquer thinner and basically wash the stock with it,...

    Well regardless of what may have been posted before it is standard procedure and critically important to gauge a rifle when changing the bolt. Have thousands of guys done it without gauging and got...

    I don't know about the SIGs but maybe you should get a Colt. I've never had any big problem with any AR including the ones I put together. Possibly a key to happiness with the AR platform is...

    All the pistol calibers are fine but with the small .30 Carbine you get magnum pistol power (or greater - 1990 FPS and 950 ft lbs) plus higher magazine capacity. I was going to try to make the AR but...

    In Case You Forgot Why We Love The Carbine

    I don't pay any attention to my M1C anymore and I have been going through a period of sudden interest in .22 rifles and pistols. Plus I have also been taking my ARs and AK to the range, so I have...

    Please stop putting the .30 carbine round in the carbine muzzle - it proves nothing. If you actually have not figured it out yet, the bullets are the same caliber and diameter but the carbine bullet...

    Now that's a new one on me - some kind of 'field-expedient' bayonet on a Carbine? I'm guessing the armorer would remove the front sight, slide the rear band on, replace the sight, slide the assembly...

    Hard-soldering IS brazing. Soft-soldering is what you do on copper pipe with various alloys of soft metal like tin and even silver....

    I think its an original replacement barrel. This is because regular production barrels were Parkerized with the band and sight on. On an original barrel you see a 'white' strip when you move the...

    Stock is repro. mags/bayo are junk. What you're buying is the carbine itself with no stock. Maybe $300 if in good condition but judging by what I can see I would want to take a real good look....

    Just for the sake of being correct, there really was no 'M2' stock. The enhanced stock that could accommodate the M1 or M2 Carbine was still an M1 Carbine stock.

    If considered, the .35 would have been rejected because of reduced magazine capacity and reduced range and energy. I guess it could have a jacketed bullet which also would have been a requirement to...
