    I bought a garand from this guy, we started talking about carbines. He said I could use these pics to try to find out more. I'll ask him for more pics.

    Thanks Jim, he says it's not an M2. But from what I read on your link, it had to be at one time.

    Does anyone know how a carbine would get these markings? These are the only pictures I have.

    I think I've been a member for at least 10 yrs. I shot in the JC Garand match in 2013 when the GCA Convention was in Cody, Wyoming. I normally don't get to go to the conventions, so that was fun.

    That's what I assumed when I saw it. I didn't think they sent out adjustable sights until August 44?

    I've heard a lot about the Navajo Code Talkers in the Marine Corps, but did the Army have them? They were in the Pacific as well.

    Interesting Carbine

    I was recently in Kayenta, AZ. and stopped at a Burger King. They had a nice display of Navajo Code Talkers and I thought this pic was interesting. I took more pics of the display, but this was the...

    Is that a faint R?

    I was looking......again, at the rear sight, I got down to seeing minute striations from machining I guess. no letters, but I was also looking at the barrel band. Is that a faint "R"?

    The best I can get, I think

    Tried again with the camera steadied. Do you have the link so I can copy Data sheets again? I moved back to Wyoming since I bought the Winchester and lost the extras I had.

    The camera is smarter than I am.

    The camera is a FujiPix S3200. I've looked on their website and they don't even list it. It is 11 years old. It did take a pic of the T on the front sight. There's an R there also, but the glare is...

    I took another look at Charlie's pic of the B-R leaf and I was looking lower than that. There's no mark where a B-R should be on that leaf, and of course, both of you are right about a wire brush....

    The link you put up tells me its the grooved wall. I saw no cutout on the right side for the M2. You know stuff I don't even know to look for.

    I looked closer at the frt sight there's an R on the right side too, but not the same lettering style as the pic you showed.



    Just an "S" on the rear flip , there's no B-R at the peephole.
