    Most people probably never knew how to ascertain real and fake. Collectors and accumulators will buy the repop parts. I'm not so hot on mag catches, safeties and bands and wouldn't buy a new repop...

    Yeah, and I didn't notice it until I shot the picture. The K on the shelf was the first thing I noticed but then found I've owned with similar sorta markings one for a few years.

    P51Mustang, Grand Rapids housings have that line on the right side. Some more than others. I believe the step down where the trigger pin is was done in a later process. I...

    Ever seen one of these stamps before?

    This is on a pristine Carbine and the info given is that servicemen were given a stamp they used on clothes so they could be identified during & after laundering? Was that an occurrence?

    There's one out there that's possibly a Winchester housing that's had constructed of two or more housings faked into an IP one.
    I think it was posted on ebay. Possibly a username of Sunrey?

    It's a stretch find a piece per month for half of the Carbine makers. You'll get a chance at 1 or 2 flips per year. Same for mag catches.

    A type I sight is what it came with originally. You can call it a flip up. It's a flip sight to most Carbine people. The safety is changed as is the mag catch, the barrel band was changed and since...
